It looked like an interesting read, but then I saw the price tag... $500.00.

Not a typo.
This is one of the many "intelligence reports" prepared by IT consulting firms and intended for sale to investors and other corporate types.
Here's the page on IDC's (the authoring company) site about this report - it was from last summer:

What if it were a book where each page was a $100 bill? ;)
