    Get a life, guys….It’s a tell on the quality of analyst reports. Firms like Forrester and Gartner seldom scoop up useful insights, mostly they end up lionizing the sponsors of their research. In that they make no bones of their lifeline. So, no point wondering why truly futuristic technologies don’t figure in that list. The answer is clear; none of its guerilla sponsors – IBM, MSFT, HP, Cisco, Oracle – are into those ;-)

    How else would you characterize the success of iPhone?

    How about green technology? Classically disruptive – requires rethinking both use and production, and will be one of the most profound cultural changes in the next 50 years.
