If you are relatively new to the Mac scene, maybe having jumped on board when the iPhone hit big, you might think of Apple as a hit factory. It seems like everything that comes out of Cupertino strike big, doesn't it? However, those of us who have been around for a while remember that not every gadget Apple launched lived long enough to deserve being pushed forward into the future.
We've put together a list of Apple products that we thought were cool, and wish that they could have stuck around for longer than they did. If this is the first time you've seen some of these, marvel at the wonders and boggle at the misfits! Who knows? Maybe one of these things might return in a new form someday!
Who says you can't recycle old technology by melding it with new technology? One person has modded an old iBook G3 clamshell with an iPad and Apple USB keyboard to make a world's first "iBookPad," and it doesn't look half bad either.
