I landed on this article and it sounded pretty amusing to me. Why? Because when it was written, Apple was planning its dominance on the Web, as it seems. But here's the point: something inexistent 4 years ago has the largest market share in the World today. It would not have been possible if it wasn't for open standards and continuous push towards creating something better and, of course, Google.

I bet nobody saw it coming. In the meanwhile, I hear Facebook is working on it's own browser of sorts, and maybe even OS. And, Microsoft recently launched it's own version of a social network.
