Before Apple launches a product, the rumor mill starts to turn. And we'll be bombarded with all kinds of concepts, to mockups that could look like the actual thing. But how many have been wrong? Here are six, that totally missed the mark completely.
Designed by "Nick C" in response to a competition Engadget held to imagine future Apple products back in 2006. We guess the designer was still stuck in the "slider" era. Look, there's a QWERTY keyboard too.

6. iPod With a Trackpad
This actually sounds like a mini computer, and it shows a screen with a UI that has a keyboard and then a trackpad. Why? For fun?
