At the end of last year I asked you "What are your tech predictions for 2011?" and many of you responded with some great stuff. I would have to say that 2011 will be the year of tablets! Given the CES coverage, it sure seems like everyone and their grandmother are coming out with one. As for 3D TVs, though they are being pushed by the manufacturers, many of you are on the fence, but member minimalist thinks they are going to ignored by most consumers. What do members have to say about the fate of e-book readers, or how about streaming video killing the DVD market? Will the Android platform put a hole in Apple's party? If you're curious about what our members had to say, read up on their opinions and join the conversation. And if you haven't chimed in yet, 2011 is just at its infancy, so we want to hear what your tech predications are. Maybe at the end of the year, we'll revisit this discussion and recognize those with the most accurate predictions. Have fun, and thanks to all who contributed! Have a great weekend folks!
What are your tech predictions for 2011?
Since we are rapidly approaching the New Year, I thought it
would be fun to give the technical help and how-to a break
and throw out a question about tech predictions for 2011. Do
you think 2011 will be the year for tablets since so many
companies are following suit after the Apple iPad release? Or
how about 3D TVs: will the technology eventually become an
integral part of all TVs or will it simply fade away? Will
streaming video devices kill the DVD market? What about cell
phones: will they all eventually be replaced by smartphones?
Will the Google Android platform overtake the Apple iPhone
OS? Will e-book readers eventually evolve to become tablet
devices? These are some thoughts I had, but I'd like to know
what you think? If you have a tech gadget prediction for the
New Year or have any opinions on the questions I wrote above,
I'd love to hear them. Let's discuss it together and have
some fun! Thanks in advance.

Featured member solutions for last week's question:
Pro and cons of HDTV for computing
I'm thinking about getting a new larger monitor for my desktop computer, and wonder about the difference between getting a dedicated monitor and a high-def TV. I'd plan to drive it with a VGA cable, and perhaps have a HDMI cable from the satellite box, too. I'd like to be able to use PIP and have TV in the small inset picture. Getting a TV would also have the benefit of being able to use it standalone. Is this a good idea? How much computer monitor performance do I give up if I get a 32-inch 1080p TV? Please let me know what the pros and cons are so I can make a sound decision. Thanks.
