I could go on for ages just talking about mistakes in the iPhone design. Or maybe they're not mistakes, but intentional flaws to justify buying a replacement in a couple of years.

Maybe we should think twice before doing that. Its impact goes beyond our wallets.

I loved the Cube. Was that a Johnny Ive creation?

The Cube would make a great case for MacTV

We still use the Cube with one of the original beige Power Macs to run legacy OS9 software based on 4D.

The Performas were noisy, poorly made, junk, and Apple knew it.

It should be remembered that Apple sought the expertise of Sony to create its first PowerBook.

My Mac Cube is still running using 10.4. It is my scanning station and connect with the rest of my Macs on Lion with no problems.

"But hey, how many computers are still talked about more than a decade after their release?"

At least one: the Commodore 64 :D

the cube was a great success for pros who needed space, others... not so much!

The cube was a great machine. The 'mistake' was in overpricing it. At $1000 it would have sold like hotcakes.

Spot-on. If the Cube had sold for $999, today it would be appearing on lists of Apple's successes.
