‘The iPod will be finished’ – Decades Worst Prediction
Many a prediction has been made over the last 10 years about the technology that will survive into the next decade. While some may have held a minute amount of substance some were just brazen and not very clearly thought through. For example, reports are saying that the worst predication for technology that was made in this decade was that by Sir Alan Sugar in February of 200. His prediction was simple – The iPod will be dead, finished, gone, kaput. We can’t really judge this too strongly as it appears he may have been one of those clairvoyants that got some of the information right. The original iPod Classic, although still quite wildly even today, has given way to the newer and better devices like the iPod Touch and iPod Nanos. Perhaps his iTunes erased all his music as it was in Sync with another machine? Any how this is considered to be one of the worst if not the worst prediction of this decade.
