Results For My Top 10 Technology Predictions For 2011

Here are my results For the 10 tech predictions I made for the past year. Lets see how I did.

1. iTunes will be in the cloud (music only)
They sure did and not just music. With the introduction of iOS5, they introduced us to iCloud.

2. Xbox & Playstation; No game disks
Wrong on this one. I was thinking there would be talk about the next X-Box and how all your games would be in the cloud.

3. Blockbuster's doors will close for good
I'm going to say half correct. Blockbuster Canada brick and mortar stores are gone, but the US stores are still open. link

4. Google's gTunes
Yep. It's called Google Music, US only. Google keep your music in the cloud which works great with an Android phone. You also have the option to download music to your phone just in case your in an area where you won't get a signal.

5. Apple TV won't be a hobby anymore
Still a hobby, but it's a really great hobby. Every TV in my house has an Apple TV connected to it.

6. Data only plans for smart phones
I was really hoping for this one to happen. I still don't use the phone part of my iPhone. Why can't I just get a data only plan like the iPad.

7. Flash will be non existent
Half True. Adobe will no longer pursue flash on mobile devices.

8. Apple wireless sync
True. With the introduction of iOS5, your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch can do a wireless sync through your home network.

9. Xbox going mobile
Nope. Windows phone 7 is not what I was thinking. I wanted to be playing my Gears of War 2 in the car or on the bus on a portable Xbox like the PSP.

10. New Movie releases at home
I got this one right. Universal Studios tried it with the movie Tower heist with Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy. They tested it in Atlanta. The movie was released in theaters and then available on demand a couple of weeks later while Tower Heist was still in theaters.

Bonus: Crazy Ass prediction
 Apple did become the richest company in the world surpassing Exxon Mobil.
