Wow 1992, will we be getting retro four-inch-thick lap tops with tiny screens? And Barney?
And most of all, not a bit of it will matter, because the world is going to keep on going.
Now come back in 10-15 years and tell me how much of that list is accurate. It's probably going to be pretty damn scary.
