It's funny to read this 8 years later. Flat market? Hmm. iPhone? Android? On the other hand: he was spot on with WLAN. Total Fail.

Brad, Google has axed several web services with total data loss. They did in Pages (partial data save), Notebook (total loss), a failed pre-facebook social networking site and a few more. They've also essentially killed several web services by abandoning development. The problem with the cloud is much bigger than this. The real answer is SimpleNote -- completely portable data. See my latest rant with abundant links: http://notes.kateva.org/2010/12/yahoo-kills-delicious-don-say-you-weren.html

And when a keystroke logger compromises your OpenID credentials, you lose everything everywhere. We need at least 3 sets of credentials (un/pw pairs) through OpenID/OAuth corresponding to 3 security classes Class I: utterly disposable Class II: painful to lose, but ok for non-secured machines Class III: cannot lose. Use only only on trusted, secured machines (ex. Personal machine running iOS)

Brad, how about posting without his name? He has a gross insight deficiency, but the truly wise would consider that a form of disability and hence of diminished responsibility. We don't really need his name -- the post stands alone.

Congratulations Brad -- this may be your hot post of the year. Excellent work, very well said. I do have some modest sympathy for Henderson. He's receiving the roasting many deserve but few receive. He probably has a very small insight node in his frontal cortex, so it's unlikely he'll learn anything from this. Not his fault really, it's a sort of adaptive disability.

Even if the quote was offbase, the impact has still been much greater than I expected. The thing we're forgetting is that the current iPad requires a computer. I wonder how many Windows boxes are turning into oversized peripherals for iTunes sync. What will happen when Apple eliminates the need for an iTunes host and syncs to MobileMe instead?
