At work we have been discussing "Technology forecasting" to try to see what the bigger picture will be for 2009. There is going to be some fairly large changes in 2009 in regards to Broadband, Mobiles and Wireless.
The speed of wireless Broadband will be increased(HSPA+ or eHSPA), and there are quite a few new MIDs waiting for release. As well as this there are new services including Internet STB's(for watching internet streamed TV on the TV) and Home automation/smarthome is a big one to keep an eye out for as well(using Zigbee as a solution).
 
But "Technology forecasting" can be a dangerous pastime, just have to remember what poor old Ken Olsen said once.

Quote
In 1977, Ken Olsen, the founder and CEO of Digital Equipment Corporation, said " There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home."

I think there are a few out there who should be banned from having a computer in their home.  :D

And the good old Computer mouse turned 40 last month, but all you geeks out there already knew that.  :p
