If Sybil Trelawney forecasted Apple's future...

Those interested in gadgets and computers, whether or not they belong to the Cult of Mac as I do, may be interested in a list the folks at Wired cooked up of the 15 Dumbest Apple Predictions of All Time, predictions made by people who, to make an appropriate Harry Potter reference, were really channeling their inner Sybil Trelawney* when they made those statements. The list is self-described as "some of the most awesome flubs to be found in the futures that people have wished for Apple" and is accompanied by an amusing picture. Amusing to me, anyway.

*For those of you who have not read up through Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Sybil Trelawney is the not-particularly-gifted Divination teacher at Hogwarts. The number of accurate predictions or prophesies she is known to have made about the future can be counted on one hand.
