Well, the year has almost ended, and I thought I would take the time out to talk about what impacted us the most this year. This is not going to be in any particular order, so don’t interpret this as a “Top Ten” list.
No More Woof, simply because it is so very interesting. Perhaps I should nominate it as my crowdfunded project of the year.
It was definitely the year of curved screens. There was that huge television set that Samsung unveiled, not to mention the smartphones of Flex and the GALAXY ROUND. It is clearly leading to an age of unbreakable bendable smartphone displays.
Let’s talk tablets. Lenovo had something really good going on with the Lenovo Yoga Tablet. Nokia had the Lumia 2520 Tablet. Then there was the iPad Air and new iPad Mini. Then there is the Kindle Fire HDX.
Oh hey, you can use your mobile phone during takeoff and landing. What’s next? Easier air travel?
This won’t come into play for a little while, but the CEO of Amazon announced flying drones to deliver packages.
I like this 3-D Tactile Feedback screen from Disney Research.
Okay, time for the best Speculative Fiction movie. There was a real landmark, but I did like Pacific Rim, R.I.P.D., Oblivion and Catching Fire. Some of the worst disappointments were Elysium and Man of Steel, Star Trek: Into Darkness, and do I need to mention After Earth?
Microsoft buys Nokia! Google buys Boston Dynamics? Draw your own conclusions.
Android finally brought out their KitKat.
Let’s talk about more worse disappointments. I’ll go with the new Yahoo Mail.
That is all for this year. Talk to you next year.
