There's nothing better about living in the 21st Century than the ability to order, pay for and arrange delivery of food from the comfort of our own homes. Thanks to the internet, we don't even have to talk to anyone to do it. Though delivery has traditionally been reserved for pizza and cheap Chinese takeaway, you might be surprised how many of your favourite fast food joints deliver -- from Red Rooster and Subway to gourmet burger joint Mary's and decedent dessert maestro Gelato Messina.

Picking up your phone and actually making a phone call to order tonight's dinner is old school. Way old school. Apps are the future -- they give you a convenient menu for all your favourite restaurants or cafes, and let you either order ahead if you're picking up a coffee or a snack, or include cheap and fast delivery. We seem to order a lot of fast food, so we've put together a very quick guide to some our our favourites.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
