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.

For this author, the solution for these firms is to "seek a buyer". If every company currently not number 1 in sales sells out to the company that is currently number 1 in sales... eventually there will only be one (or very few) players.

The author describes a recipe for monopoly. Correct me if I am wrong but, isn't monopoly bad?
