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 had to stop reading after this statement about the Newton:

its laughably inaccurate handwriting recognition was the subject of scorn


This is completely false. In fact most people who have ever actually used a Newton before recall that the handwriting recognition was vastly superior to anything that came after it. I have used a Newton before and I owned an early Palm a short time ater and I remember the regression going from one to the other.
