  1. Chicken? We’ve all got to place career bet’s for next year. “What he said” isn’t exactly on the mark. How are you changing your life in anticipation of 2008?

  5. I predict that watching video on a iPhone/iTouch via WiFi/Safari/Quicktime will be very popular this year and a viable way to distribute ad supported video.

    I discovered how to watch Rocketboom on my TV from my iTouch here: http://podslug.com/blog/?p=114 … I predict that many more content sites will enable over-the-air (WiFi) video playback on the iTouch.

  7. I like his predictions this year, really clear and fairly precise. Last year a couple were pretty broad (e.g. A major internet company will run into privacy/trust issues).

    There is a great twitter feed with a round up of all the new year predictions here: http://twitter.com/predictions08
