Thanks, great article! Brings up some interesting issues re: "hands-free Googling while driving". Though am kinda ambivalent about yet another technology that enables folks to be further "removed" from their immediate environment... and now even including whenever they're standing right in your presence and looking straight at you?!!

Predictions for 2013: What will happen in the world of technology and science?

I see a very bright, optimistic, and encouraging future related to Computers for a very long time, especially in 2013. The prominent role and influence of computers in society already became ubiquitous, and very popular for certain important activities.

The employment possibilities related to Computer IT information technology software programming is guaranteed plenty of success, especially for people that know computers very well, and having some sense of creative, entrepreneurial spirit endeavors in a computer career.

I also see a good future for a lot of other Science/Technology related activities, especially for Environmental Science/Studies, Engineering, Biology, Physics, and Chemistry.

Television/TV in my opinion is becoming antiquated recently and seems to have a dark, negative, pessimistic, discouraging future. TV=the Opposite of Computers for recent times.

People are going to continue to buy Cars and Phones but I see a decline for innovation and new products related to that for the next few years compared to the past decade, so overall a mixed future for Cars and Phones.

I also see a lot more public places such as more Café Bars offering free computer wifi where people can use their computer for plenty of hours in other exciting environments away from their home. This is related to technology infrastructure for someone to easily use their computer away from home. That is already becoming popular in some cities/towns.

This has been a interesting year so far, and its only April, for biological transistors, called a transcriptors, as they have made some very good strides. I suspect as it continues to advance exponentially in the next few years it will become even bigger news.
