Myopia and obesity will be on the rise

As is currently the trend with children the explosion of devices, games and other technology will help support the continued increase in myopia and poor physical fitness.

I also wished they left things alone, I mean I really liked, used and miss wubi.exe but its been gone for too long now.

I predict that more companies will make their employees take a working product and make it useless. Then try to sell it twice as much as before.
Linux is not Ubuntu.
Get yourself some vanilla Debian and reduce that learning curve.

Ubuntu is Linux

Ubuntu IS Linux and it's substantially more current than Debian even though it was originally based on Debian. For example, current Debian 3.16.0 kernel, Ubuntu 4.2.0 kernel, and same is pretty much true across the board. Almost anything that works under Ubuntu works under Debian and vice versa so learning curve is not much different.

We will see more automation of everyday task in society from pharmacy, education, shopping.

I believe that imagination and creativity will continue to have a very big boost, however I am afraid that most of the investments and research will be directed to products with smartphones and tablets, and to the wheapons obviously, but I believe also that many good things will happen and lots of new people of talent will give new directions with new trends and solutions.
But what I most desire and there is a constant concern for portability, the preference is for product quality not by lack of support ...
Happy 2016 to all ...
Feliz 2016 para todos Vai Brasil.....

vpns will begin to be rendered useless

2016 will see a growing wave of major content providing or indexing companies disallowing connections from anonymous proxies, essentially mandating that all traffic be traceable.

They will all say Ugg Ugg.. RRR,, Ugg RR,, R.Ugg

Roughly translated that will mean "That was one bad trip"
Remember I'm typing this in a dream.. I think..?? Ugg R Ug
"Ogg ogg" especially when singing.

R.I.P Moore's law

The last major speed increase/transistor density in consumer grade cpu's will take place and there will be a reversal of the time frame such that the time it takes to mark a notable improvement in performance will double with each iteration instead of the density of transistors doubling with each time period, thus signaling the end of Moore's law.

Future improvements will come through cost reduction in manufacturing techniques and deployment of multicore systems with relatively little improvement in transistor density until eventually (not in 2016) a viable non-silicon alternative is found.

The word 'quantum' will be thrown around a lot but won't happen either at all, or until several other segway technologies fill in first.

Can you say "cancer"?

Implantable electronics will be proposed for medical and social applications at an increasing rate despite conclusive evidence that even unpowered RFID devices cause tumors in mammals due to the very high emanated emf field as seen by cells in direct contact with the device.

Voices expressing alarm will be ignored by proponents of the technology who will cite "There is no evidence that this is a real problem", and several years from now after the devices have been used in humans and cancers are becoming evident, the defense will be made that "there was no way anyone knew this would happen."

I thought Moore's Law already gave up the ghost 3-4 years ago?

Ah. So Research into that is bearing fruit? At long last...

2016 is going to be the year where advertisers get really creative, or add funded applications start going belly up.
