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.

My list of predictions for next December (compared to now):

Losers:
-Cable TV providers

Given that cable TV providers are also often broadband providers I don't see them being too hurt.

-LG phones (due to lack of focus on smartphones)

I think people overestimate the impact of smartphones (though I could severely underestimate it). I don't want a phone that does everything. I want one that is a phone (and maybe an mp3 player) and that doesn't cost me triple digits. I'm banking my doubts on me not being the only one, but again, I could well be wrong on that
