Why the Apple G4 Cube failed: cats!

Too bad he de-emphasized it as the reason in favour of cabling, but blogger bbum felt that one of the principal failings of Apple's G4 Cube was that of:

having a flat topped, conveniently sized, surface on top of which things will be placed, will fall, and — yes — may choose to nap.

In context he was actually talking about the design of the cooling system being very dependent on clear airflow. I liked the cat angle though.

It's a much more interesting rationale than the difficulty of having to connect cables to a box where the mounting location is on the base.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
