Apple finally made official what many of us have suspected forsometime. They cancelled the Cube, the little G4 that couldn’t. I wasamazed by the Cube when it was first released, and I still think it is abeautiful machine with a role as a niche product. But in its goal to expandits user base through new models and retail locations, Apple cannot affordto cater to a niche market. It costs money to maintain a product line andsometimes it is better just to suck up the development costs and kill a slowproduct than to let it go on draining the treasury.
