I am just back from the CompTIA member conference in Johannesburg, and a good event it was too. As always on these monster flights, I read books, magazines, papers, anything I can learn something new. I believe technology will become the next utility, to the point where you can’t see it and this is a great step in that direction. Light Touch, developed in Cambridge, can turn any flat surface into a 10-inch touchscreen. As this evolves, has connectivity and is integrated into portable devices, will it be goodbye monitor, keyboard and laptop bag forever? I hope so.
A study by Gartner revealed that in the next 3 years, more than 50 million IP addresses will come from automobiles. One day, there will only be one network, one global wireless network which everybody, and every device, will be permanently connected to; and we may not need gadgets, as our skin, our clothing and our glasses carry enough technology to keep us in touch.
