Quickflix became the first victim of the streaming wars in Australia yesterday, announcing it is in voluntary administration, a move many anticipated.

The company founded in 2003 by CEO Stephen Langsford’s garage in Perth, was originally, like Netflix, an online DVD rental service where customers paid a flat fee to have an unlimited number of DVDs delivered to their door.

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.
