As I surf around the Internet, I notice that everyone has some kind of predictions to make for the year 2007. So I figured, heh, why not? I can make some predictions. I just got my crystal ball out of the repair shop and sat down to see what was up.

The Dell Dude (you know the guy who said ‘Dude, you’re a getting Dell’) won’t be coming back anytime soon. I think he is still in rehab.

Microsoft will really release Vista on January 30, 2007.

Apple vs. PC commercials will end. The PC guy tells the Apple guy that for the price of a Mac – he could have bought two Dells. Apple guy commits suicide, though this episode never gets aired on TV.

Intel introduces a Dual x Quad processor with eight processors on a single chip. A Maytag freezer is a standard accessory to keep the chip cool. The public is in shock and awe because it hasn’t a clue what this means and is still struggling with 1080i.

Dell will promise to have at least 10% of its techs speaking English by year’s end.

Google will buy a bunch of companies and come out with a bunch of new products. Gee, that’s a no brainer.

Microsoft will announce that it is working on the next generation of Windows which will be better, faster, leaner, and meaner than any Windows that has gone before. And it will have some cool code name for it. Like Titan.

Google will continue to embrace Linux and threaten to come out with a Google OS. Google stock will rise even higher than the highest anyone thought it could. Now that’s high!

Cell phones will continue to drop calls no matter how many times we say ‘can you hear me now?’

My wife’s second cousin will discover that the Gates who is trying to get the situation in Iraq straightened out is ROBERT Gates, not Bill Gates. When he said that Bill Gates was working out the problems in Iraq, I heard dueling banjos in the background. 🙂

Have a nice holiday.

PS: Don’t take my predictions too seriously. I have been known to be wrong once or twice.
