The most anticipated technologies of 2010

by admin

As the new decade begins, we can expect a lot from the Information Technology world.There are plenty of ideas and projects ready to undermine our worldviews this year.Some of them will be brand new, and some have been nurtured for a long time and are about to come. Of the ten technologies we’re about to look at, more than half are in the mobile category. But it’s also hard to imagine today’s web without them.

1. Tablet

The most anticipated product of this year. The mythical “tablet”, which seems to be worked on by everyone. Introduced by great examples for Android , many different concepts and Apple tablet of course iSlate (or whatever it is) And if Steve Jobs isn’t working on this “tablet, ” then it’s about time he got on it, because anything else would be a big disappointment. It’s actually unclear why we need another gadget between a laptop and an iPhone, but that’s only until it comes out. After all, at a time when all the applications and data move to the web, this gadget becomes your best guide. It also remains a great “reader”, player, “typewriter”, etc.

2. Geolocation

The combination of GPS in cell phones, social media, and innovative mobile apps makes geolocation into the most pertinent feature of any gadget or app. And it’s not just about entertainment like Foursquare or Gowalla. The introduction of GeoAPIin services like Twitter, simpelgeo and Facebook turns this toy into a useful tool with layers of information and positioning. Just recently Twitter launched its own API and acquired Mixer Labs, the company that created GeoAPI

3. Real time search

After The issuance of streaming permissions in real time by Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace, Google and Bing quickly started setting up their services. But so far, this search is being finalized and doesn’t show up on the home page. I hope for 2010 the search engines figure out the output. In addition to the major players in this market, there are startups like Collecta, OneRiot and Topsy that can compete and bring new ideas. Also, real-time search can be the basis for navigating the web, especially with Twitter and Facebook. By combining a query with other filters, users can get not only the most up-to-date, but also the most relevant information for their query.

4. Chrome OS

In November, google. provided its own operating system, expected just this year. It is the most powerful attack google against windows. All web applications are built into the operating system itself, which makes them much faster to run and work with than their browser counterparts. There are rumors that Google is already working on its own netbook , which will show what this WebOS It seems that this OS would be ideal for the already mentioned TabletPCs. Chrome is a risky bet, but still has great potential.

5. HTML5

The web is based on HTML, the next version of of which will be HTML5 Many browsers already include support for new elements, and once the new standard gains popularity, we will no longer need to use plug-ins like Flash or Silverlight to watch videos, animations on the site, drag-n-drop, data storage, or desktop application capabilities. All of this will be based on web standards. I predict that many sites will begin to adopt HTML5 capabilities during 2010.

6. Mobile video

With video cameras built into the latest iPhones and similar devices, live video streaming apps are becoming more and more attractive. And broadcasting in both directions. With the gradual transition of cellular networks to 3G (somewhere already to 4G), mobile video will become even more successful.

7. Augmented reality

One of the best ways to use your cell phone camera is to use augmented reality apps They add a new layer of information to the existing reality with tweets, blog posts, social media inormation, photos, etc. The current representatives of augmented reality are Sekai Camera. , Layar , GraffitiGeo and even Yelp

8. Mobile commerce

Slowly, cell phones are getting the functionality of ordinary PCs and commercial transactions are becoming possible. One of the prospects for 2010 is the introduction of payments and transfers via cell phones. Twitter founder Jack Dorsey discovered Square project to turn an iPhone into a credit card reader. Verifone has a competing product. , created with the Mophie The idea is that the cellular can become a point of sale, linked to all the necessary billing systems.

9. Android

Nearly two dozen android-based phones have been released in the past year, including the Verizon Droid. Google’s Nexus One is due out in the next couple of days, which should be the first android phone with the ability to unlocking from any media (runs with T-Mobile) Android is Google’s answer to the iPhone, and as the number of phones based on it grows, it becomes more and more attractive to developers. There are already more than 10, 000 apps and the number will grow in the next year.

10. Social interaction and clients

We’ve all seen the rise of Twitter and Facebook as social interaction tools. This year, those tools are set to go deeper into the corporate sector. Saleforce.com is getting ready to launch Chatter which will be a network of corporate data that can be presented on Twitter and Facebook, as well as other applications. Startups like Yammer or Bantam Live. also make businesses more socially oriented.
