Which aspect of new technology are you really expecting to see come 2013? And also who and who would make impact in markets more - Amazon, Google, Samsung, and Microsoft? I foresee Microsoft and Samsung becoming stronger from 2013, for Apple, just has to get ready to battle it out with new challengers. Markets no longer Samsung, RIM, Nokia and Apple.
I am hoping to see concrete financial recovery in the US and Europe in 2013, which will also have significant effects on the rest of the world. The global economy needs to pick up so that more people are able to find jobs and keep a smiling face.
The turth is full recovery will need a few more years according to the experts but I am one of those people who believe hoping does not hurt!
