Fact 1

Apple's one and only gaming console-Pippin!
Here's the logo of it!

Here's the console itself

It was controlled by an Apple Jack Controller

The goal of the Bandai Pippin was to create an inexpensive computer aimed mostly at playing CD-based multimedia software, especially games, but also functioning as a thin client. The operating system was basically a stripped version of System 7.5.2, and was based on a 66 MHz PowerPC 603 processor and a 14.4 kb/s modem. It featured a 4×-speed CD-ROM drive and a video output that could connect to a standard television display.
Bandai manufactured fewer than 100,000 Pippins, but reportedly sold 42,000 systems before discontinuing the line. Production of the system was so limited, there were more keyboard and modem accessories produced than actual systems.[3]
In May 2006, the Pippin placed 22nd in PC World's list of the "25 Worst Tech Products of All Time."
