Cell phones will unfold to about 12 inches wide to accommodate the larger screens. Consequently, our computers will have shrunk to about 4 inches in width in a mad race to make them more portable. We will wear special goggles to make the screen seem larger and cut down on eye strain. The biggest change will be the lack of wires on the back of our desktop computers. We will be almost totally wireless by then.

No one will be far from the Internet. Everywhere we go, the Internet will be there. Just like Big Brother from George Orwell's novel, 1984. No privacy, no secrets, no sneaking around. As the children say, "Santa Claus knows when you been good or bad. So...be good for goodness sake." "You better watch out, you better not shout..." Oh well, you get the message.

Whether technology needs a changin or not, it is determined to do for no other reason than the fact that the seller needs something new for the buyer to buy each year.

Things have really changed in the last 50 years. When I was a little one, we got about 15 minutes of news 3 times a day whether we needed it or not. Plus 3 minutes of sports and about 2 minutes of weather. We really had no idea what was happening in the world. I don't think we cared. We assumed that our leaders were working really hard and doing an honest job. At least, we assumed so, until 24 hour cable news came along and then we were burdened with the knowledge that our leaders not only led, but somehow found the time to do the things that often fill the news today, such as hiking the Appalachian Trail or flying about the land in great planes looking worldly when the need arises.

What will the Internet look like in two years? How do I know?
