: I remember seeing hype for those things, followed by seeing them in the wild
Yes, it looked cool at the Expo, like it floated above the desk, but it underperformed for its price point. Low sales and poor reviews meant Steve Jobs quickly axed it. Probably one of his first failures as CEO. Best forgotten.
Not forgotten is that Steve brought Microsoft's Ed Fries on to the Macworld Expo stage and Ed talked about bringing the entire line of MS games to the Mac. It was Ed Fries who brought Alex Seropian on to the stage (not Steve, no handshake for the Man) and Alex said that Bungie still loves the Mac and announced that Halo would be coming to the Mac... soon™. Ed and Alex exited stage left, Steve enters stage right and says... "We are very excited about Halo and the rest of the Bungie games coming to the Mac."
And no that's not a misquote.
