Technology isn’t an industry that stands still. Instead, each year brings new innovations, new gadgets, and new inventions. Existing tech companies and products also change and evolve, though not always for the better.
For us geeks, the end of the year is a time to look forward rather than back; to imagine what the tech world will look like in 12 months time. Which is our challenge to you, dear reader, in this edition of We Ask You.
In 2014, I Predict…
We want to know, What Are Your Predictions For Technology In 2014? Just tell us at least one thing you think will happen in the world of technology during 2014. You can be serious or snarky, positive or negative, detailed or vague, as long as you take to the comments section below and pass your thoughts onto the wider MakeUseOf community.
Do you think Bitcoin will change the world? Do you foresee everybody wearing Google Glass in public? Will Google/Microsoft/Apple/Facebook (delete as appropriate) succeed or fail? Will one product be vastly improved by a sudden and unexpected game-changer? If so, which? And how?
Will a brand new product launch to change the face of the industry? Will 4K televisions come of age? Will 3D printers take off in a big way? Will company A acquire company B? Which out of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will sell more units? Will the new iPhone have a curved screen and be covered in diamonds?!
These are just a few examples of what you may be thinking will happen in 2014, but the possibilities are endless. Don your thinking cap, adopt a Nostradamus pose, and get typing away for a chance to win a T-shirt… and take part in what will hopefully be both an entertaining and enlightening debate.
