Wozniak's Predictions For 2013: the Data Center, Mobility and Beyond 70

Posted by samzenpus

Nerval's Lobster writes "Tech icon Steve Wozniak has come forward with several predictions for 2013, with data center technologies an important part of the list. Wozniak's predictions are based on a series of conversations he had recently with Brett Shockley, senior vice president and general manager of applications and emerging technologies at Avaya. They trace an arc from the consumer space up through the enterprise, with an interesting take on the BYOD phenomenon: Woz believes that mobile devices will eventually become the 'remote controls,' so to speak, of the world. Although he's most famous as the co-founder of Apple, Wozniak currently serves as chief scientist at Fusion-io, a manufacturer of enterprise flash storage for data centers and other devices."

    1. Apple will release a slightly updated version of the iPad and iPhone and they're consumers will eat it up, though to a lesser extent than in the past.

    2. Rumors of Microsoft releasing Windows 9 ahead of expected schedule, due to tepid Windows 8 take up.

    3. Facebook will further adjust their usury policies to increase revenues from the product of its users.

    4. A new website/service will be announced and people will react like it is the second coming, for about two months before it fades to black.

    5. U.S. taxes will increase significantly for all and the government will begin issuing near abusive regulatory edits.

    That in the next two weeks there will be hundreds of inept predictions, wishful thinking, and a couple of accurate predictions.
