The Polaroid was to expensive to use....
The 30 pin dock connector was to wide and thick for future phones
No one used Live Messenger, especially with the advent of Facebook.
Xbox died because the xbox 360 came out.....

About the only thing that belongs on that list was the Flip camera. It was a profitable company when it died. Wasnt it HP that killed it?
