2008 predictions


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

What are some major accomplishments/failures you think we are going to have in the next year?

I think that WiMax is going to be released (talk is that sprint and clearwire are working on this). One WiMax account can get you internet access anywhere; no wires, no hotspots. They plan to be able to blanket cities and regions with wi-fi. Sprint bought the 2.5 GHz spectrum, thus no interference from home or business networks.

So my prediction: Buying internet from local cable/satellite companies will be eliminated. We will be cruising around in the passenger seat of a car posting on the cult forums. Internet access anywhere for a monthly fee similar to what you are paying now.
