Predicting the Winners and Losers
I've had a good record of picking many of the best new technologies. I plan
on sharing my thoughts and will explain the reasons for my predictions
with as much detail as possible. I will also share my thoughts on products
"I think" should be successful along with technology I expect
to fail or hope will fail. You can be sure any reviews will be honest and not
because I'm paid off.
My best known prediction called for a complete change in my
life and future. I was invited to join a small group of innovators who were convinced
we could make going online as easy as using a TV or telephone. We knew once a modem became
standard equipment on home computers they wouldn't be turn off as often. American Online
provided the 'critical mass' needed to make a diverse World Wide Web possible.
As we started the new year of 2007
I wrote about the future of
"Solid State Drives" or "Flash" memory. At the time a simple Compact Flash with
2 GB's of memory cost $50 USD. Today, for the same 50 bucks you can get a faster,
USB Solid State Drive with 256 GB's.
I wasn't a genious to realize there would be a need for
more security when I created WinPatrol in 1997. The PC Pitstop newsletter pointed to,
tThe research company Gartner Inc. who estimates 96 billion USD
will be spent in 2018 on identity access management and security services. I was the
first to stop relying on signiture files and detect infiltrations based on changes to
critical system locations.
