It's not the opposite point, that was my point.

Newton failed, palm pilot came along and failed, htc built pocket pc phones which failed. Finally apple built the iphone and succeeded. It looked like nobody wanted PDA's, but it was they didn't have the right one.

Atari could be the box that cleans up, or it could just be another failure on the road to success.
