Seeing the future is a very difficult task. Ask any investor or stock picker to tell you if it is easy to find the next big thing. They will tell you that most events are counter intuitive. A tiny firm like Google beats industry giants like Yahoo. Two men in a garage form Apple computer and they not IBM lead the computer revolution.
Lets look at some John Titor Predictions.
Computer became a lot smaller and faster in the 80's and 90's, but John said that wireless internet was the future. Instead of Cable Modem, T1 lines, or DSL.
In 2000 that seemed like a joke. I could and did buy a device that allowed me to connect my cell phone to my laptop at 9600 baud that is much slower than 56K modems.
Yet, today in 2007, all laptops come with WiFi and wireless internet is standard. So John was right. The debunkers are so silent about this. They used to laugh and laugh, but where is that laughter now?
I predicted back then that both GM and Ford would go under. Now they can claim all they want that it is "obvious", but back in 2000 it was not. SUVs were selling briskly. I predicted that they would rust on the lots without moving.
Now Ford is declaring 2006 - its worst year in its 103 year history.
The key to understanding the future is that it is not obvious, far from it. The strong and mighty stumble and fall. For example, IBM no longer sells personal computers. It sold its unit to LEnovo a Chinese company. IBM is another dinosaur that will soon become EXTINCT!
