    It's even worse than the Mighty Mouse but that should totally be on the list too. The G4 cube shouldn't be that high because conceptually, it is what most people want and that makes it look like it's a bad idea. It's a great idea implemented wrongly.

    4. Newton

    2. G4 Cube

    I don't know if you'd classify these two as flops. Everybody wanted a Newton after the Newton was cut from Apple's line-up. Same thing with the G4 Cube.

    Actually, if you bring the G4 Cube back, at a good price range, it would sell because that's what people want. A Macintosh, with no monitor and an upgradeable graphics card (it would be a PCIe graphics card now).

    You should see a presentation by the French Apple guy... mmm... French Apple pie...

    But to be truthful, the Mighty Mouse is really bad... and the puck was worse.
