Yet another group of analysts has thrown their prediction out. they think PS3 will come out ahead narrowly. (Link dead) I don’t care if they’re supporting the first system I’m buying, I’m really sick of all these ivory-tower analysts and their crystal ball predictions. First one will say the Xbox360 will come out ahead, then the next one will say the Wii, then another will say the PS3. Then an analyst will say the Xbox will cost $600 billion to make, another will go on to say the PS3 will cost $900 billion to make. It gets really annoying. Would all you darn analysts just shut up and let the market forces decide? After a few years of the consoles being out, you can go and analyze why whoever is in the lead won. Until then, go away or come up with some way to be useful to society instead of trying to make your prophecy self-fulfilling.

There’s also yet another example of evil, anti-consumer patents here (Link dead) but I’ll just avoid making another post on it…
