9: Apple Admits That They Screwed Up, Fixes the App Market
In an area where I have a great interest, Apple will finally work to fix one of the biggest mistakes with their iTunes-iPhone system. Currently, there are millions of Apps that you can download, but most of them are as useful as a turd wrapped in shiny paper (to my disappointment, that is not the name of a real application). It is far too hard to locate and download useful or great apps (unless you read my iWant feature) and that is a shame. I expect Apple to fix this and allow a full rating system, which uses other users to help match your opinions. Think of it as Netflix for the App Store.

10: The Cloud Will Die
Yeah, I know that this will not happen, but I still can harbor hope that that damn cloud will be shot down. I do not like the idea that one company can have all of my data, my contacts, and even my phone records. Of course, with more and more companies using Google Docs to run their business, it is clear that mainstream America is against my position, and that they don't care about their trade secrets. In all honesty, I expect the Cloud to continue to grow, but I hope that it doesn't.

Well folks, there you have it. These are ten of the changes in technology that I expect to happen in 2010. Some of these will probably happen, some of them will not, but they should all be interesting to think about. Let me know what you think that I missed, what should be altered, or how clinically insane I am.
