This article made me laugh 6 years ago, and just shows why nobody who knows anything takes John Dvorak seriously, with the possible exception of sticking an inverter gate in front of his output first. Granted, I'm keeping him in business by linking to him because he makes his living as a professional troll: say outrageously stupid things and get the money from ad impressions.

The Gphone is DOOMED!

He rolls off some good anecdotes from days gone by. Case in point, he mentions the big push for Intel's Itanium platform, which at one time was going to be the Next Big Thing. The Register were spot-on when they dubbed it "Itanic".

Also worth noting the reference to Blackberry being the one to beat - how times have changed...
