Here’s a quick run down of my most recent predictions as of June 2011 in the world of technology and business:
- MSFT acquires RIM within 18 months. This makes sense for RIM and for MSFT, both of whom have complementary issues which both can help to solve.
- APPL acquires Twitter. More on this.
- Twitter is recognized as an infrastructure component rather than a website or application. Similar to email.
- Twitter is integrated directly into numerous operating systems but most heavily into Mac OS X.
That’s pretty much it for now. Since this is in part a test of the new quick Tumblog features and specifically figuring out why image posting is borked, you may see further annoying and odd micro-posts.
