I have to agree with robert237. This list is in reality a wish list by a techno-dweeb and bears little reality to what may or may not happen in the next decade.

While touch screens are good they are slow in comparison to keyboards for more advanced typists and simply aren't suitable for serious long term typing use as required in business or many occupations that involve writing longer pieces.

Ansell Adams shot on 8x10 plate and 4x5 formats, both of which are beyond the resolution of all but the best scanning digital cameras and they aren't able to be used in the field as they require constant light levels for several minutes.

Money will be around for a long time as vast tracts of the world will not have access to the technology that will make it obsolete plus there are legislative requirements to keep notes in production that the author(s) did not address.

Otherwise it's a reasonable piece.

Mankind

Mankind may well be extinct soon thanks to the increasing electrification and computerisation of everything.None of this stuff can stand up to a large scale Solar event such as the one that hit in 1859.That sort of event could happen anytime.Supermarkets wouldn't be able to sell food and essentials.There would be no water in cities once the power goes off.Cars now have engine and transmission computers that would be knocked out along with traffic lights.There would be 400 simultaneous melt downs at reactors across the globe.All communication satellites would be knocked out so mobile phones and GPS would be useless.Planes especially the fly by wire airbuses would be falling out of the sky and those if any that still could fly would find it tough to land in the absence of Air Traffic Control.Meat and dairy products would rot.Those living in all electric homes would not be able to cook any food they may have.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

Same sex

I found the post on same sex marriages particularly repulsive.Maybe mankind deserves extinction.
