In 1999, the idea of having a device in my hand that can do all that the iPhone can do was mind boggling. However, here we are. The question I pose to the community is what will we be talking about in 2019. Lets try to be realistic yet creative.
everything is in order except we're gonna be talking about the ps4 and the windows thing stops at 8. Microsoft themselves said so. something else ( hopefully better) is gonna be coming out after 8. also, i think we will have quantum computers. and about how the real graphics in a game run soo nice on my 10kx12k laptop screen. and graphics card will be obsolete, we will use a single proc/gpu unit. nvidia/ati will start selling these.Heres what I think.
- 256bit computing.
- Green computing (reducing on sloppy programming to reduce processing power needed.)
- OS XI.
- Windows 2020 (It's gonna be as bad as Vista.)
- Pocket computers.
- As much as I hate it, touchscreen. And possible projection touchscreen, maybe a hologram.
- The collapse of the music industry.
- PlayStation 5.
- Some hologram gaming system made by Nintendo.
Sorry to piss on your fire but: http://www.trustedreviews.com/software/news/2009/10/09/Microsoft-Plans-128bit-Windows-8---Cancels-Works/p1the windows thing stops at 8. Microsoft themselves said so.
Research & Development projects including 128bit architecture compatibility with the Windows 8 kernel and Windows 9 project plan. Forming relationships with major partners: Intel, AMD, HP and IBM.

MacRumors Top Thread:
Will Verizon get the iPhone?
There's a few things out there, that already go beyond following eye movements, or voice recognition. Brain waves. It's likely to take longer than 10 years, but it's being worked on.How about a radical new human/computer interface?
Another one that's likely to take longer than 10 years, unless there's a massive investment to speed up the development IMO.Quantum computing, once we solve the decoherance problem.
More cars are taking driving out of the hands of the driver - that'll make car crashes fewer and far between. Things like slowing down/braking hard if you get too close to another car and don't notice are already seen in luxury cars. We've all heard about the car that can parallel park itself. We have turn by turn GPS systems - GPS is already getting passed by other positioning technologies. 10 years? It's possible that at that time the high end luxury cars that just do the driving for you - just punch in where you want to go and it takes you there.Also I think that vehicles will make it pretty impossible to die in a crash. We will see more safety and prevention features in cars.
