I was just wondering what are the technologies that in my opinion will no longer be around in ten years. Here’s my pick:-
The LAN cable. I am sure PCs will not even have LAN cards, everything must go wireless.
The projector connected by monitor cable. Think Bluetooth
Anti-virus software. The operating systems will become much harder and difficult to sabotage doing away with the need for anti-viruses.
Text messaging – yes. It will and must die.
blackberry. Same here.
the stand-alone digital camera.
the printed photograph.
regional portals with yahoo-ish services.
complex ERP products.
traditional e-commerce where sellers are open. I suspect there will soon be a ring of trust governing where you can transact which will be linked into the VISA and mastercard / amex networks. Similar for private information.
the landline phone number. It is just so archaic.
yes. The mobile phone based on GSM, 3G, CDMA etc.
the fax and paper documentary proof for anything.
