Apple and Microsoft might be two of the most successful companies in the tech industry, but that doesn't mean that the two tech giants haven't had their fair share of missteps. Of course, we rarely remember those. Whenever it comes time to discuss Apple, our attention immediately shifts to the iPod or the iPhone.

Some of the following choices might be obvious to tech historians, but we're willing to bet that a good number will surprise you.
