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.

I sure hope you're right about AMD. People forget how much computers used to cost when Intel had an effective monopoly on processors. AMD pushed Intel hard to continue to improve their product. If AMD goes under, R&D at Intel will be cut back and processor (and computer) prices will rise rapidly.
