2008 was a big year, but I have a feeling 2009 is going to be an even bigger year for tech. CES and Macworld are this week and we will be seeing a lot of new tech I'll probably get my hands on at some point or another. I'm going to give you a 3 trends that you may have noticed last year that will probably be huge this year.
THIN IS IN:
As we started seeing last year, it is no surprise that manufacturers are going to start pumping out products that are unbelievably thin. For instances, LG's new insanely thin 55-inch TV to soon be released.
GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK:
2008 was a year that Green tech really took off in my opinion. We are finally starting to realize that being energy efficient is key. Most of our tech products don't turn off and even consume energy while off. In addition, the hazardous material used to make the products (since we Americans are so materialistic) are non-eco friendly in the event we upgrade for something better. JVC is managing to be one of the Greenest at CES announcing a new 32-inch LCD that is completely Green.
LED WILL BREAK FREE:
Not only is LED energy efficient, but also promises astonishing color accuracy, better battery life, brighter viewing, longer lasting, thinner-than-ever displays, and of course just a general more pleasant viewing experience.
So there you have it folks. Three predictions that I see going far in 2009. I am looking forward to it. Each of these of course is not only subject to TVs. We will see each of these in computers (laptops and desktops), cars, Digital frames, kitchenware, etc... You'll see!
To tune into CES and Macworld news, be sure to visit a few of the some good tech sites such as Engadget, Gizmodo, ArsTechnica, etc. And of course, although not live, you can check here to see some new releases and we'll talk about them a little.
