Well this is a surprise. According to Slashdot and numerous other technology analysts, iTunes could never become a monopoly because there were so many better competitors out there like Creative, Real and Microsoft.

And I suppose the iPhone will be dead before Christmas? Two years ago. However could they have got that one wrong?

The iPad will be next to go because Courier and NVidia’s Tegra are clearly superior.

P.S. OSnews v5 will be entirely Flash, with Silverlight for fallback. The special effects are really amazing. Flash is unquestionably the best technology for the future.
