Mind blown

If you’re wondering what’s coming next to your little home entergamement system and computing platform, then you have to read Robert X. Cringely’s brain drain about Microsoft, Apple, Google and Yahoo, and the future of getting your kicks through your IP portal of choice.
In short: Google wants to be the Web (the entire Web (all of it)); Microsoft is building a computer hardware platform so it can stop caring about Dell and HP and they want to be your TiVolicious reality engine wet dream; Yahoo wants to kill iTunes, Real and Napster all at once; Apple is already halfway to Microsoft’s goal without the games, using its own hardware and your love of music and movies as the worm on the hook.
These are all huge gambles for everyone, but the stakes are equally impressive.
And where, pray(station)tell, is Sony?
