    This I believe. LONG before Google released their "office" web apps, Microsoft had a version. I was a tester for Office-Online SEVEN years ago. Anytime I wanted to use Word, Excel, Powerpoint I simply went to a secure microsoft website and there they were.

    It was Microsoft's plan that once broadband Internet hit an undisclosed saturation in the US, they would release it to the public. Cheap too, but a yearly subscriber rate. I think they were expecting $50/year. That would also allow for online storage and file transfers to other accounts. It worked VERY well, much smoother than Googles.

    It would have been a win win for everyone involved, but sadly the FTC thought it would give MS too much power and told them NO. Funny that the FTC doesn't think that about Google. Another case of letting a small company get away with something they won't allow Microsoft to.
    Thats the direction alot is going.
    I just read an amazing book a couple months back looking just at that. Starts with the way we adapted from suppling our own electricity to eventually giving that power to the large "utility companys" to take care of supplying what we use to supply for ourself.
    IT departments will be gone at each company and replaced with huge huge complexes of highspeed HD to acess companys large information. You will not buy your own products but simply "rent" them from the new "IT Utility company." Same would go for the home consumer aswell.

    All we will have in the future is simply one large harddrive with our personal stuff, and a fancy video card to display it all. Everything else we will pay someone else to take care of it.

    Why spend hours downloading programs on your computer when you can pay 5 bucks a month to have the most up to date software at all times at your fingertips? ha ha

    We are in a fast paced world that keeps on getting faster, anything to save a minute or a buck will be taken on with open arms.

    Yeah =P

    PrinceLink, Instead of having a Wii that you buy games (discs) for you have your TV and you buy/download games for it. So you may only need your TV and a credit card to play next gen. games.

    Ok so that means no more big 3 ok then i bet $1000 dollars that there will ALWAYS be consoles becuase if you only have a tv that play game and upgades well then that well Monopolize gaming in away so if that happens gaming would die off from lack of inavation, This is like people saying there will be one console futures its not gonna happens and consoles are ALWAYS gonna be here

    Listin People first though that TV was going to be a fad and only last 10 years Well they got owned didnt they
    People thought the internet was a fad and was gonna die out well there wrong again!!!

    Consoles well be here as long as we live are lives because without them its just not possible

    If this were to happen then the big 3 (if not 4 by the time it happens) will probably stay separate. Just different channels or something...

    My mom said something about how she saw on the news (not FOX) that they will shut the internet down. Highly unlikely but I haven't bothered to check if the source was credible.

    Consoles will be here as long as gaming is here, also the guy in the article said that handhelds will go away and that i can beilve becuase it could just translate into cell phones but consoles NO WAY!

    Well G4 attck of the show said in a article that if the internet keeps expanding at the current rate it will run out of bandwith by the year 2015 but im sure there think of something
