Neil Gaiman's Law of Superhero Films: “the closer the film is to the look and feel of what people like about the comic, the more successful it is.”
I don't pretend that this is exhaustive or even accurate (for example I demoted Cloud Computing to ‘honourable mention’ purely because writing the entry made me fall asleep), but it's the time of the year for end-of-year lists, and I wouldn't want to disappoint.
Honestly, I think Apple should ship the iPhone with Push disabled. I dare say the number of people annoyed by the short battery life dwarfs the number of people who would even notice their calendars updated more than once an hour.
It'll hang on longer than the rest, but I'm giving the book twenty years. If you own a book store or a publishing company and you're not assuming this is what's going to happen, you're not doing anyone any favours.
Happy birthday to me.
