Microsoft "After years of domination, Microsoft is finally facing serious threats at the cores of its business, Office and Windows. Consumers and businesses alike are largely purchasing devices based on their capabilities and form factors rather than the software contained within. Windows is slowly becoming commoditized and Microsoft's traditional allies are looking at Android and Chrome OS as viable alternatives, a trend that threatens the Windows monopoly. Microsoft faces a tricky balancing act as it faces a future that's very different from its existing business." Good article by Tom Warren.

It's strange how Apple apologists attempt to ridicule those who talks about Apple's imminent but not-happening downfall, but forget to realize that they've been predicting Microsoft's downfall for ever too.

People have also predicted IBM's downfall too.

IBM was almost bankrupt in the early 90-ies.

And then it came back. Therefore, the prediction was wrong. How was that even a response?
