It was just a short bit ago when the tech world was dominated by Microsoft. Research In Motion seemed to have theworld of mobility squarely in its pocket, then suddenly something happened.
Today Apple and Google rule the roost with Twitter and Facebook becoming forces. Who knows who will step forward tommorrow?
CES2012 might go a long way provide some strong clues or indications of who the real players might be in coming times but if history is any indicator whomever it iswill slowly emerge from the clutter and noise with a product or service most of us cannot live without. We will all wonder what the heck we did before it came into our lives. Theimitatorswill scramble to clone, reverse engineer or under price whatever it turns out to be. Companies will rise or fall. Pundits will tear it apart or extol it.

I predict that we will all meet back here (Lord willing) at years end and wonder, what’s next?
