WordMean’s Tech Predictions for 2013

2013 Tech Predictions

 2013

Windows 8 ‘Desktop Edition’?

Seeing as the release of Windows 8 inspired many desktop users to criticise the direction Microsoft appears to be going in, I’ve got firm suspicions that a Windows 8 service pack will be released giving users the ability to address the issues that distance the OS from being desktop-friendly rather than tablet-orientated. Perhaps the ‘classic’ Start Menu will return and the reliance on touch gestures will be a little more optional. In fact, it may even be unofficially dubbed the “oops we fucked up, please don’t leave us” service pack.

Apple will sue some more and then release shiny things.

Okay, this is cheating – it’s pretty much not a prediction and we might as well call it inevitable – but my money’s on some more Apple VS. Samsung punches and an iPhone 5S that will surpass any sales record that Apple currently possesses. On top of this, I think that another iPad will be released – this time it’ll probably be the ‘newer iPad’.

More Anti-Piracy bills will be introduced and subsequently canned.

This is another cheap shot as it’s pretty evident the big wankers’ bosses in Hollywood will aim to crack down on piracy again in 2013. Megaupload’s Kim Dotcom will get his day in court and so this will play a significant role – and that’s really not a prediction.

The Pirate Bay will be dealt a blow.

With piracy (probably) being one of Hollywood’s enormous targets in 2013 it’s very possible that the most resilient and powerful torrent sites of all – The Pirate Bay – will be dealt some sort of kick in the teeth. Whilst it probably won’t be as big as what Megaupload experienced earlier in 2012 – it’s probable that it will alarm many of us pirates and the force behind the closure of Demonoid may be finally made public.

More CPU Cores!

The last few years has seen AMD and Intel racing to increase the core count on their CPU ranges and with the octocore being the big player at the end of 2012 – I think it’s simple to suggest that the 10 core, 12 core and maybe even 16 core will make its entry to the tech world.

Also, if Moore’s Law is anything to go by then it’d be quite obvious to suggest that the price of computer hardware will reflect the increase in storage and memory ability. With the HDD market going strong after the Disk Drive Famine; it shouldn’t be long until the 5TB HDD is achieved.

    Good prediction on the back-peddling of Windows 8
