Apple With the success of the iPod, the subsequent resurgence in popularity of the Macintosh platform, and the recent iPhone smash hit, it's hard to imagine that Apple was once a company that tried to enter every market possible, leaving a trail of flopped products in its wake. Forbes lists ten of them, and we take a look at some of them, and add one of our own.

I am using an old Mac Cube as an entertainment center at home - it works fantastic hooked up to my plasma hd tv. I agree that it was a marvel of engineering - it's so quiet and beautiful.

But hey, I think the measure of a good company or effort is what we learn from our mistakes - and Apple has showed that, in most cases, failures didn't slow them down but helped blossom later ideas.
