Predictions for 2010

Last year I predicted what would happen in technology for the year and did fairly well getting 6 out of 10, so this year I going again and here’s my list:

  • iTunes will have subscription music
  • Apple will roll out more MobileMe features
  • Twiter will be purchased
  • The iPhone will allow background apps in a limited form (i.e music apps)
  • The UK Internet Piracy bill will not get passed
  • Google Voice will come to the UK
  • Google Wave will flop without a purpose
  • UK telecom companies will start rolling out fiber on a large scale
  • Microsoft will bring the Zune to the UK
  • The Apple Table will not launch

That’s what I say 2010 has in store for us and we’ll see how well I do at the end of the year.
