    In reality, I see television, internet and phone all being connected and combined into one medium and your portable and home computers connected via a cloud based OS and AI managing all the mediums, cpu cores will get to 100 or more, computers will be smaller but powerful like the Crays of today.

    Well, it has been estimated that computers will surpass the human brains processing power by 2025(the computer we use now are approximately as intelligent as an ant), so by 2022, we're looking at an extremely powerful, inteligent, flexible devices.

    If you're wondering how they can make suck an exact estimate, it's because Moore's law states that a computers proccessing power is doubled every year, which has been true sine 1958. In fact, the pace is accelerating.

    Anyway, I'd imagine cloud-based VR(virtual reality) devices, which we interact with kinda like in the anime Ghost in the Shell, if you've seen that.

    Of course, we will still be able to interact with keyboard/mouse, but the new method will probably be more widespread.

    I'm thinking a computer that is very similar to the one we see on Star Trek in the home. Basically a digital butler for everyone. I expect Tivo to be designing this now...lol
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.

    Let's see. It's 2009 now. 2022 is 13 years in the future. 1996 was 13 years in the past. I remember 1996. I was using an old Mac (before Mac OS 9 even) that was like a giant box with a tiny floppy drive. It was a black-and-white screen, and I used it pretty much for word processing (not Microsoft Office) and dial-up internet (Pine email, no web browser). When I went to the computer lab to use the web, there was a battle between Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer. There was also a huge battle between random search engines (InfoSeeker, Northern Light, Excite).

    Google didn't exist. Everyone I knew had no internet access or only dial-up. There was practically no spam or pop-ups. I hadn't heard of Linux, let alone tried it.

    Given all the changes that have happened since 1996, I don't think I can properly envision what computing will be like in 2022. I mean in 1996, I wouldn't have imagined iPods, iPhones, Ubuntu, Google Docs, Compiz, netbooks...

    Wi-fi everywhere you go, everywhere.
    Land line based connection will be obsolete.
    Because Wi-fi is easier to build, easier to upgrade, and easier to maintain.
    There are two sides to every story: my side and the wrong side.

    A everyday computer will have a 20 Tera byte hardive, with 8 gigabytes of RAM and an Intel with 8 cores. All operating systems will be 64-bit and higher. The graphics will be good enough to run Crysis at Max settings, like if it was running notepad.

    Neh, they'll all be outlawed and destroyed for becoming sentient.

    That is, if we can defeat them.
    Word.
    More Word.
    Maximum Wordage.

    *I think there will be three main classes of computers: netbooks/nettops, servers, and workstations (which mostly only hobbyists like me will own.)
    *Windows will be radically different; it will have become a 64-bit Unix OS with a Win32 sublayer for old applications.
    *Mac OS will be at version 12.
    *Linux will still exist. Most computers will use Windows or Mac, but Linux will be popular with manufacturers who want to customize their OS for a certain purpose.
    *Many people will use a game console as their main computer, and netbooks as secondary machines.
    *FreeDOS will still exist.

    2022. The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 2022. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

    Skynet fights back.
