Fred Wilson quips about how he doesn’t like to say “I told you so” because he thinks it sounds mean but, deep down, really wants to say it.Fred’s direct involvement in some of the best services on the Web (besides Viddler sadly (hint Fred hint) shows that the guy can see a winner a mile away.
I think I can spot a winner too, honestly.
Take the Mac for example. When I switched I told everyone I knew that they should switch to the Mac. Most people gave excuses (some good, most not) about why they “couldn’t switch” or “it wouldn’t work for them”. Now nearly everyone that I suggested the Mac to has at least one in their home as well as an iPhone and I wouldn’t doubt an iPad is next.Oh, and they’re all on Twitter too.
To them I say – I told you so.
