Technology's future through the crystal ball

NewsFactor Network writes: "I found a crystal ball in an antique store the other day. Not too unusual of an occurrence -- I see them all the time -- but this one was different. Upon first glimpse, the crystal ball displayed a news headline that read, "IBM announces the discontinuation of AIX in favor of Linux." Huh? I hadn't seen that before, nor even had an inkling that IBM was going to abandon AIX. Then I read the date. May 5, 2005? This crystal ball appeared to give its viewer a brief glimpse of technology news headlines of the future."
