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.

AMD still sucks in the mobile market. For years people have been waiting for them to come up with a competitor to Intel that has similar low-power requirements, but it hasn't happened--AMD's chips are still more power-hungry than Intel's. Admittedly this has to do with the fact that Intel is always one step ahead in shrinking its manufacturing process--but it also has to do with architecture, and either way you cut it, it doesn't look good for AMD since laptops have been eating away at desktop market share for years now.
