Companies are releasing new products all the time, hoping they’ll come out with something that folks absolutely must have, but more often than not, products don’t exactly go over well with the public, and some have been spectacular failures.
Well, 24/7 Wall Street has just come out with the list of the Biggest Product Flops of the Past Decade, and many of these products cost companies millions, and even billions.
Overall, the site has picked Google Glass as the biggest flop ever. The product, released in 2013, was an eyeglass shaped head-mounted display with smartphone capabilities, but it saw two years of disappointing sales, before they finally discontinued the product in 2015.
Other products making the list include the mobile phone app Home, the Disney movie “Mars Needs Moms and Burger King’s Satisfries, which were supposed to be a healthy alternative to fries.
