This is what Yahoo thinks Yahoo tech
Interesting article I think
Better get used to it... technology is changing faster and faster, and the rate of change is accelerating all the time. We're all headed for the Singularity!
And eventually we will all have brain implants and become Cyborgs
A useful heads up. As the article says, film delivery via broadband is coming via Netflix UK. It just so happens that I am offering for a sale a very good domain for this sector:
The reason this name is good is that the film companies will normally have a free download introductory offer. For cash flow reasons I want to sell the domain now, offers invited from £250, but this is a great domain to kill it in this sector.
Also, don't forget CES starts Jan 10th:
For the under 30s I'd genuinely expect it to happen in their lifetimes...
It could be quite handy in terms of learning boring data such as correct spellings, times tables etc. Maybe the children of the future won't have to waste so much time in rote learning and can have the time to do something more interesting with their early lives.
The Commodore 64 turned 30 a few days ago. Modern computers have 10,000,000 the storage space and 120,000x the memory. Projecting the trends forward, that makes the PC of 2042 a literally unimaginably complex, powerful machine capable of things straight out of the pages of Science Fiction.
For a start it would be able to store over 8 years of Ultra High Definition video and audio, recording constantly 24/7 - imagine being able to call back up anything you saw or heard at a fidelity higher than your eyes and ears can resolve!
The future is in the smartphone guys.
I'm not really up on tech stuff, although I do see some articles about it on the net occasionally.
I read this article recently which says the same thing:
Part of which says:
If you enjoy keeping up with future tech (or just have a passing interest) I recommend these sites...

The only problem is that the end users ain't getting smarter
The iPad 3 is launching fairly shortly, expect a nice price drop on the iPad 2 for those who don't already own one.
iPads don't drop that much in price when a newer one comes out though .(compared to other gadgets)
A lot of products had been in developed in previous boom time years when money free flowed into research but with many budgets cut over the last few years I think most over the next year or so will just be re hashes of the old… Many companies will hide lack of development behind a back to basic austerity consumerism based marketing push “less for your buck” Tesco and alike... Sometimes wonder if the smarter the things are around us the dumber we get… Defiantly a case as smatter as a society dumber as individuals
It's only happened once before, hardly representative
Ha that's true. What I meant by that was that Apple products don't go down in value that much compared to other brands. (iPhones, MacBooks etc - and I'm sure the iPad will be the same)
