Nominee for Worst Prediction of the Decade

Rob Glaser, CEO of Real Networks, to The New York Times in 2003 regarding the “closed” iPod:

“It’s absolutely clear now why five years from now, Apple will have 3 (percent) to 5 percent of the player market. … The history of the world is that hybridization yields better results.”

Not looking good for this prediction.
