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.

Actually the movie rentals work just fine here in Canada. I think they are also available in some other countries now too (can't remember for sure so don't hold me to it).

I wouldn't really call the AppleTV a flop, but it's also not a runaway hit. They are nice little boxes, but I've never been able to justify a use for one. I think the problem is: anyone who has enough iTunes content (which is what pumps the aTV full of life) probably already has a nice enough display/sound setup with their computer they don't need an AppleTV.

That's how I look at it at least.
