The year that’s just passed was an important one for technology, with new gadgets and services finding their way on to the market, bigger companies acquiring smaller companies, and innovations spilling out from the underground to find a new mainstream audience. But technology never stands still, with the next big thing always on the horizon. This makes it an exciting industry to watch, be involved in, and to write about.
Having previously looked back on 2012 – at the best innovations and the best of MakeUseOf – it’s now time to look forward to 2013. We’ve already seen recommendations for resolutions to make and to keep for 2013, and now we want to know what your tech-related hopes are for the 12 months ahead.
This Week’s Question…
What Are Your Tech-Related Hopes For 2013?
This is a very open question and your hopes for 2013 can be many and/or varied. As long as they’re in some way related to technology then we’re interested in hearing your views, whether they have a positive or negative tone to them. In other words it doesn’t matter if you want to be serious or snarky, all comments are welcome.
Would you like to see Windows 8 set the world alight? Or for RiM to make an auspicious comeback? Do you want to see Facebook fall flat on its face? Or for everyone to abandon Instagram? How about a new games console or two? Or a new iPhone/iPad/iPod/Mac (delete as appropriate)? Should 3D fly or flounder? Should tablets kill netbooks stone dead?
These are just a few examples to get your brain thinking along the right lines, but the ultimate decision is yours and yours alone. We want to know what your hopes are for 2013, but we don’t expect you to don your thinking caps for nothing. Read on to find out what’s in it for you.
All comments will be digested to form conclusions in a follow-up post next week where we will detail what You Told Us. One reader will be chosen for the coveted Comment Of The Week, getting their name up in lights, the respect of other readers, and 150 MakeUseOf points to use for MakeUseOf Rewards. What more motivation than that do you need to respond?
We Ask You is a weekly column dedicated to finding out the opinions of MakeUseOf readers. The questions asked are usually open-ended and likely to necessitate a discussion. Some are opinion-based, while others see you sharing tips and advice, or advocating tools and apps to fellow MakeUseOf Readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you.
