Predicting The Future (continued)
This is the third post in a series I am doing called Predicting The Future.
It’s a certainty, not a prediction, that Apple will ship new iPods next year that obsolete the ones we all bought this year that made obsolete the ones we bought the year before. SNL did the definitive piece on Apple’s obsession with planned obsolesence. I still can’t stop lauging when I see that skit.
Since we all know that Apple will not open up the iPod without a sea change in their market position, I am interested in doing something in 2006 that will allow me and everyone else to own digital music player that we can plug a FM module, a Sirius module, an XM module, or an HD module into, and get "tivo like" store and replay functionality as well.
That’s a killer mobile audio device.
