In the future we will be able to wear glasses and other wearable devices and be able to watch television and connect to the internet at anytime and anywhere we go. Television is moving forward at a rapid pace. Once a new product or service comes out we will drop that technology and move on to the next.  Critical Mass- Social Media  Social Media will continue to be around in the future. It may not be Facebook, Twitter, or even LinkedIn. Other concepts and ideas similar to what we have now will be around in the future.
