A look ahead towards 2013 – JuicyBrain – EdenExpress
December 24, 2012
As the end of 2012 draws near, it is time for us all to look back over the year that has passed and to think about what we have achieved.
It is also a time for us all to think about next year and the things we hope to accomplish in the New Year. I will try to provide you with technology and web advice that will help you achieve some of these goals and maybe make your life just a little better through the use of technology.
At this time of the year I always love to look ahead and think about what we may see on the technology front for the next year.
I believe that 2013 will see the announcement of the new Apple television set. For many years there have been rumours that Steve Jobs believed that the interaction between humans and television sets are flawed and should be more instinctive. I believe that in 2013 Apple will finally announce this new television set. Whether we will be able to afford it is another question.
Next year more televisions will have Internet-enabled capabilities and we will see a huge increase in the way we consume content on our televisions from the Internet. Some televisions already have these capabilities, but it will become the norm.
I think in 2013 we will see the end of most video stores and music shops. Yes, it is sad, but with South Africans finally being able to legally buy music and movies online through iTunes, I cannot see how these stores will be able to survive.
The other innovations and exciting developments in 2013 I will share with you as the year progresses.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a technologically enhanced new year.
