A dozen years ago, WAP, wireless application protocol was promising. Now years roll by. Mobile cyberspace is still just getting warmed up with wifi remaining dominant. Microsoft is due to announce a deVice shortly.

Hi Harvey. EricL posted so I had a look upstream for old time's sake.

For a dozen years a lot of companies have gone nowhere in market capitalisation, Qualcomm among them [ups and downs notwithstanding] while others have come from nowhere and done what it's surprising incumbents didn't do.

Nokia replaced by Apple.
Eudora went away and Gmail/Google are ubiquitous
many others

Why is it so hard for companies to imagine something new and wanted by everyone and then do it?
