What Technology Will Bring to the Next Decade

Look back at how far computers and other personal technologies have come in the last 10 years, and it's easy to see why it's so difficult to predict where they'll go over the next decade.
Best guess: Look for more data to be available at any time, more information accessible through speedier devices, a greater reliance on the cloud, and technologies that work away quietly in the background.

Ten years ago, we would have been blown away by a cellphone with far more computing power and memory than the average PC had in 1999, along with a built-in camera and programs to manage every aspect of our lives. Ten years from now, the iPhone and its ilk will be antiques.
Over the next decade, the evolution of computing and the Internet will produce faster, increasingly intelligent devices. More of our possessions will contain sensors and computers that log our activities, building digital dossiers that augment our memories, help us make decisions and tame information overload.
