Cringely’s Predictions

January 8th, 2007 · No Comments

Robert Cringely reviews his 2006 predictions and offers the following for 2007:

1) Apple releases iTV, a bunch of flat-panel MacTV’s that contain Mac Minis, etc. This is broken record and exactly what I predicted last year, but I still mean it.

4) No one DRM technology emerges as the winner and the RIAA begins to back off as it loses a few legal cases. Still, no Internet-only song wins a Grammy or is even recognized as existing.

10) The year the net crashed (in the USA). Video overwhelms the net and we all learn that the broadband ISPs have been selling us something they can’t really deliver.
