What Microsoft Thinks the Future Will Look Like

Two things. One, we're going to need a lot of hand sanitiser if Microsoft is right about the all-touch-everything future. Two, I'm surprised how much I like Microsoft's vision-it's futuristic, natural and metro-y. View »

Watch films at your convenience at the touch of a button? Yeah, we have that. What was amazingly futuristic in 1993 is commonplace and ordinary today. I can only imagine what the world will be like in another 18 years, provided we haven't nuked ourselves to oblivion by then.
