The company that built the Barbie and Hot Wheels computers - and then burned because of it.

The Financial Post named Patriot as one of Canada's 50 best managed private companies and named co-founder Mark Durst one of Canada's top 40 executives under 40. Patriot's business partners include Mattel (NYSE: MAT), Intel (NASD: INTC), MBNA (NYSE: KRB) and Philips (NYSE: PHG).

The company filed for Bankruptcy on December 7, 2000 just months after announcing plans to go public.
