One of Apple's Worst Business Decisions Ever

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

It all started back around 15-20 years ago. Back then, Apple hired a company to develop some software that could link peoples' macs together so they could talk, share files, etc. Apple wanted to call it AppleLink (or something to that effect) Anyway, for one reason or another, Apple decided to let the team of software engineers developing AppleLink go. However, Apple might have overlooked that in the contract they signed when the team first came on board, they agreed that if they cancelled the project or let the team go, the engineers got to keep the technology. A short time later, these software engineers refiened the product and resurfaced with a new name....America Online


(It might've not been a bad decision after all, considering AOL sucks, but still)
