Back in 1994 Apple introduced a unique online service

With its homelike, cozy look and feel it fascinated its users even though it was rather expensive compared to other online services. eWorld competed directly against AOL, CompuServe, and MSN, and finally lost this competition. On March 31, 1996, at 12:01 am the service shut down. Apple’s management decided that the product was doomed to fail in a market where AOL had such a commanding lead.
