Late last month, Microsoft fired a shot across Apple's bow. With the Surface Studio and Dial and an updated Surface Book, Microsoft made clear its plans to woo Apple's old core audience of creative professionals -- a group Apple has seemingly forgotten in favour of a more mainstream target. Apple fired back with the Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro, but unfortunately, the OLED touchscreen that replaces the function keys feels more like a gimmick than a game changer. Has Apple lost its old base? Though both laptops go for over $2000, a peek under the hood of both Apple and Microsoft's laptops tells the real story: When it comes to a mobile workhorse, at least, Apple still reigns supreme.

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.
