Some bold new year's predictions!

And to add a crazy one of my own: I don't think the first widely used transnational cyber-currency will be bitcoin - I think it will be Facebook Credits, once they roll out their own Facebook Wallet system with hundreds of millions of users from the start.

Very interesting read! Looks like mobile subscription plans might not be the only tricky scheme for consumers to figure out going forward:

"We notice you bought 76Kg of potatoes last year. Currently potatoes cost £1/Kg, but the cost of fuel may cause this to rise, or there might be a famine. Would you like to pay us £80 by direct debit at 80p/week instead for a guarantee of up to 80Kg of potatoes with nothing extra to pay for the next year? For an extra 20p/week, we'll insure you against a potato famine driving prices up to £3/Kg for the next 100Kg you buy!"

Decisions, decisions, decisions...
