Some of Gartner’s better screw-ups…

Domination of IA-64 in the datacentre (2001)

Windows Mobile to dominate the Smartphone market (2003)

By 2008, 20 percent of “office” applications will be selected by users themselves (2006)

Vista will be the last major release of Windows (2006)

Demise of the Mouse in three to five years (2008)

In five years, we will all be using digital paper and smart fabric (2008)

WebOS to sell Millions of Tablets, and no MS (2010)

And IT Directors lap it up..
