In the News This 24/7 Wall Street article displays three common media ailments: hyperbole, a love for top ten lists, and an obsession with December predictions for the coming year (which off course OSNews is obviously also falling victim to), and there are some predictable losers on this list (Blockbuster Video, anyone?). I thought it would be an interesting topic for OSNews because three of the companies/brands are quite familiar to us: Palm, Motorola, and Sun Microsystems.

MySpace, AOL, Twitter and AMD are ones with writing on the wall. MySpace and AOL are owned by larger corps but their demise is eminent. Twitter is starting to lose its cool factor. I heard a story the other day about Twitter. They were talking with a teen who said, "Twitter is for old people." AMD is sad. I hoped they would do well for so long and now they are destined to be forever an also ran in the chip business even with the recent win against Intel. I would not be surprised to see Intel step in and prop them up a'la MS and Apple in the 90's to avoid monopoly issues.
