In what has become an annual Silicon Valley ritual, leading venture capitalists have made their predictions about which technologies will thrive and which will take a dive in the near future.
The iPhone will be a hit, but not world changing. The hot Web 2.0 market will cool, or it may keep bubbling. There wasn’t always consensus.
The coming iPhone from Apple, a combination cellphone, music or video player, and Web device, is going to be popular but there is some debate about whether it will dominate the mobile market or just help sales of all device makers.
Other predictions debated by the VCs ranged from green technology to the movement of media content and ad revenue online to advancements in biotechnology.
