Via Daring Fireball, here's one of the great predictions of our time. It's from Slashdot founder, Rob Malda, in the day that the first iPod was released.
No wireless. Less space than a nomad. Lame.

67 million iPods later and... well... there's still no wireless. But that is an awful lot of iPods that have been sold...

Talking of predictions...

"On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you'll see why 1984 won't be like "1984"."

How well did that work out?

Incidentally, on his comment:-

"An Apple phone wouldn’t do more than a Treo or a BlackBerry or a Razr — it would do less, and what it would do, it would do really well."

Thing is, Palm used to get this. I've got 2 Palm devices, and they're great. Very fast, very simple. None of the lags of a WinCE. Worked flawlessly for me.

The Nokia 770 looks quite nice.
