WOW. WHAT? Americans have TV`s in their bathrooms?! I just read a magazine there, it`s not like I sit there for hours.

we all need to get back to our roots. doesn`t anyone else like to go outside and find someplace where there are no man-made structures... just beauty and the peace of the mother earth. sitting in the grass and staring at the sky can be more entertaining and fullfilling than spending six hours a day playing video games or blogging on some silly site. especially when you have friends right there with you. someone to share a real moment with. a real experience you know?

Television in the bathroom? That`s unnecessary.
I was wondering when they`d make another one of these.

I don`t see how some people would or could call this scary. I am all for the advancement of technology, and I can`t wait to see what the next big thing will be. Go humans!

i don`t understand why you need a tv in the bathroom you spend like 5 minutes at a time in there.
can people not daydream anymore?

I have that terrible feeling that half of these predictions either won`t come true, or will be even more amazing than we predicted.

A bit like how a few years back people were saying that libraries would no longer exist by 2010...

I don`t know anyone who has a TV in the bathroom.

Quick poll - anyone know anyone who does?

I don`t find it sad...I find it very fascinating. Convergence will be a big thing for Internet 4.0. We`ll see traditional media disappear, and be converted entirely into digital media transferred over ultra fast Internet.

Brady James - 217,541 texts in one 31 day month - that`s 4.8 messages per minute, or 1 every 12.3 seconds, assuming he was messaging 24/7 and never slept. Assuming a normal 16 hour waking day, it was 7.3 per minute, or 1 every 8.2 seconds.

"TV in the bathroom. seriously? why?!!"

For when you`re constipated, like my dad usually is, and you don`t want to miss an important game on telly. He spends hours on the toilet; I bet he could do with a television there. =P

That`s amazing and all but it just worries me how impersonal things will become in the future. That is, unless our technology and networking becomes more and more personal until the technology is second nature.

"Now I have (at last count) 34 "Class 1 Domestic Lasers" in my house."

Does that include the laser guided sex toys?

Neat vid btw.

I am reminded of when my father decided to buy my mother a Digital Watch for a wedding anniversary present, when they were relatively new. After looking at them, he decided they were way too expensive and said he would wait until they dropped below $1,000 (about $25,000 now).

"Are you MAD!?" replied one of Australia`s most respected Jewellers, "They will NEVER come below $1000!"

Now we have them in Corn Flakes packets.

Yes, quantum engineering etc etc, it will get here eventually. But by then the very concept of a "computer" will have lost its meaning, the technology will become part of everyday life to the point that you don`t even notice it.

I was born in 1966, the year the LASER was invented. They were the stuff of science fiction, the impossible made real. Now I have (at last count) 34 "Class 1 Domestic Lasers" in my house.

You both are incorrect. Current computing is capable of operating using DNA strands. Given a few years, a computer could be made that will fit within a very small area.

Nope. He is right, You are wrong. Don`t mean to burst your bubble but quantum computing is more than 25 years away. Current technology is down to an atomic level. It will improve as it has, but not quite that fast.

I agree, we`ve been fed "Guess what things will be like in 20 years" stories for the last 100 years, none of them ever come true. According to Moore`s Law, we have about 3 years left of computers getting smaller until we reach the practical limit, where the electricity running through the circuitry "jumps the gap" and the device therefore can`t function. Interesting article about it here.

I doubt that there will be a computer as powerful as we have today that can fit in a blood cell. Right now there are problems with size in computing. Intel is placing individual atoms in specific locations to make their processors, and we`ve reached the point where we can`t make them any smaller because of that. If you want to go as small as inside a cell, you have to give up the power you`re talking about. Well, at least that`s what I think. But if Bill Gates can be wrong about memory, I can most certainly be wrong about this!

I checked out my mum`s (mom`s to you Yanks) phone last week, she`s had it 3 years, she`s 75-ish.

- She sent her first ever text message last week.
- I checked outgoing calls - she has NEVER called anyone.
- I checked incoming - 95% of them went unanswered.
- She has taken 160 photo`s - all of the inside of her purse/handbag (I presume).

Everyone who is calling out the mobile phone in a blood cell quote, it would seem you are missing the point. If you can get a computer the size of a blood cell, then thats bordering on nano-technology, which could mean wonderful things in the world of medicine etc.

and in the world of super-villainy, as well.

You see, I would rather find out how to cure the disease of old age and how to live on mars before I learn how to put a computer in my blood cell.

But that`s just me.
