Amazon will add 120,000 seasonal employees for the holidays this year, up 20 per cent from last year's holiday season surge. It's not unusual for companies like Amazon to add thousands of workers in the final quarter of the year. Big retailers are particularly in need of extra helpers during the holiday season because of the surge in online sales. Amazon's increase in workers, however, is gigantic compared to its biggest competitors.

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.
