The BBC's Tech Picks for 2012

At the end of 2011 the BBC asked a number of business technology experts what they predicted for the coming year.  Here are a few of their predictions.  This article was passed on to me by one of my colleagues (thanks Paul!)

  • More tablets (iPad, Amazon)
  • Open Graph technology becoming more widely used
  • Cloud computing - apps will continue to develop
  • Realtime content 
  • Social TV
  • Social media and email becoming more closely integrated
  • New forms of energy
  • Security - biometrics instead of passwords
  • "Corporate springs" - customers have a bigger say in what companies do
  • Generic top level domains
  • Continued growth of smart mobile devices, including their use as transaction authentication devices
  • Location based marketing
  • BYOD
  • Further evolution of gaming environments
