IBM is terrible at predicting the future

In this 2011 video, IBM made five predictions about technology in the year 2016.

Prediction #1: Users will created their own energy using running shoes, bicycles and the water flowing through their home water pipes.

Nope.

Prediction #2: Passwords will be obsolete.

I wish!

Prediction #3: Smartphones and computers will read your mind. Just think of who you want to call and the phone will call them.

Totally non-existent.

Prediction #4: The digital divide will no longer exist

Nope. The digital divide is a major problem.

Prediction #5: Ad customization will become so good that spam will be our most valued form of email.

Wow. Way off!

IBM's prediction video got absolutely everything wrong about technology in the year 2016. Meanwhile, they didn't mention virtual reality, widely distributed artificial intelligence and emojis.

It seems like in Android 6 you can't set the message center number, the one that allows you to send SMS messages. WTF! Seems pretty stupid.
After lots of digging, I found this article:

It seems that dialing (star)#(star)#4636#(star)#(star) gets you a developer menu, where you can set the SMSC number.

It is unChristian to keep these people out.
It is unAmerican to keep these people out.
It is inhuman to keep these people out.
And it is foolish in the extreme to allow fear to dictate our actions, especially? most especially? when that fear is not only rooted in our worst impulses, but is exactly what our actual enemies want us to do.
I am not a Christian. That fact has probably been perfectly clear for a very long time; it doesn't take a whole lot of reading around here to figure it out. What may be less clear to non long-time...

It's not so much the OS for me, it's the undocumented, unfixable, binary blobs we get in wifi that are messing things up. http://wwahammy.com/seriously-the-fcc-might-still-ban-your-operating-system/

The discussion about online privacy is something that rumbles on. Those who know what is happening with personal information on the internet are aware of the inherent risks, but these are being joined by increasing numbers of the previously-technologically-illiterate who are coming to understand what being online means.

As a developer, I never managed to stick to the same job for more than two years.
