Google should have created Siri or Alexa
Microsoft should have created virtualization
Netflix should have created iTunes
Nokia should have created iPhone

These companies had the exposure to opportunity and technology but they couldn’t pull it off.

What other blatant misses exist in the tech world ?

      ibm was the only great company many years ago but it’s not shiny any more nowadays. They also invented service-oriented architecture if I remember correctly.

    Yahoo is the king of should haves. They invented search, online market place, paid music subscription, cloud storage, they got TVs to run their widgets etc... you name it... They got all the right idea just failed to execute

      Not sure. But I feel they should have entered that field. Movies belong to them. Why not music

    • iTunes released in 2001 and was dominant well before Netflix started streaming in 2007.

    Chucky is too busy letting his ELT ladies run Cisco into the ground and with massive layoffs and pay cuts coming to think up and execute a good idea like that.

    Microsoft should own 20% of all tech companies that started after year 1995. Atleast.

    Thanks Ballmer.
