Forecasting ... a Tricky Business

January 31, 2005 10:30 am | Product Releases | Comments

Last month my headline was " '05, The Year Wireless Goes Mainstream." I, more or less, said I was going out on a limb and viewing this as a prediction. Well, we'll see if I'm right or wrong. In this month's column, I was thinking about making another risky prediction (stay tuned, it's coming next month), but during the process I got to thinking (to my publisher's chagrin) because I'd recently been asked to discuss MY opinions ab...
