Despite this self-flagellation, he's generally had some pretty good insights prior to 2008 and you can't win 'em all, all the time. Here are some of his darts-in-the-wall for 2009:
- "The good news is that most recessions mean new IT platforms."
- "The next Yahoo CEO will dismember the company and sell it piecemeal."
- "Microsoft and Google will peak in 2009 ... Steve Ballmer is toast." [ Jenks claims 2010 for the M$ demise.---njg] (Like Humpty-Dumpty, The Goog) "... is too fat and happy."
- "If Microsoft and Google are down then what's up? Apple!"
