TechLahore’s Predictions for 2011

Tweet The decline of Windows Mobile in the last few years is one of the most confusing, frustrating and inexplicable tech stories of the past decade. After becoming *the* smartphone operating system, besting Palm, Handspring and even RIM, Microsoft apparently went into a coma. They failed to keep up with emerging competition, like the Apple [...]

TechLahore’s prediction about Palm comes true – Palm bought for $1.2B by HP

Tweet This news doesn’t make me particularly happy, because a great, innovative company that pioneered the handheld market has been gobbled up today for a paltry sum that may be less than the value of its patents alone. But I have to say, I did see this one coming. Almost two years ago I predicted [...]

Tweet Those of you who have been following the blog for a while know that I have been tracking the iPad since many moons. I even promised I would go and buy it when it came out despite my abhorrence of Apple and its closed, uber controlling policies. Well, Steve Jobs is now several hundred [...]

The Apple Tablet is one Apple product I *will* buy… if it's real, of course.

Tweet Generally speaking, I don’t like Apple. I’ve made that pretty clear. That said, there is one Apple product I am interested in. And yes, if they come out with it soon enough, I’ll buy it. If you haven’t guessed already, that product is the yet-unnamed Apple Tablet. True, the Apple Tablet has been a famed [...]
