    Well I'm not certain that the lack of "ultra thin notebooks" in 2007 realyl should warrant the title "one of the 15 worst predictions", alas many are quite humorous :)

    Hmm... Sounds kind of like the iPod Touch.

    Ultraportable? Check.
    Flash memory? Check.
    PC? You can certainly install programs on it (through hacks as of now, and SDK has been promised). It can surf the web. There is an on-screen keyboard.
    IMO, this prediction has actually come true.

    They dumped the scanners and cameras. The Newton is now really the iPhone and iPod Touch.

    The new "eMate" is the Mac Tablet rumor that just surfaced...

    These Mac OS X Touch devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, and Tablet) are way, way cool.

    Can't wait until the iPod Classic and Nano go touch....
