      Since everybody who is not using an iPad can see the infographic, it must be an iPad problem.

    Apple Newton: 1987 - 1988 is not "11 years," the real end date is 1998.

    PowerPC was far from a failure: not only did it run the second generation of Macs, it was also the basis for IBM's Cell processor used in the Playstation 3, and a triple-core version was used in the XBox 360, meaning it was used in several million game consoles.

    FireWire was a faster alternative to USB 1.x and 2.0, used for thousands of Macs and camcorders. FireWire also had less CPU overhead than USB. Most "fat" Playstation 2s have a Sony "iLink" port to the right of the two USB ports (iLink is Sony's name for Firewire). Some games supported using iLink to play cooperative games with two PS2s linked by a cable.
    It's been supplanted by Thunderbolt, also technically a failure, although those who need it swear by it, just like they did FireWire.
