It's at this time of the year that pundits, tastemakers and futurists start making fantastical predictions about what we will expect in 2013. I started to think about how we, as humans, behave in the new socially connected landscape and how we are happy to accept less in our lives. My predictions are threefold for 2013.
As a record collector, music has always been about quantity over quality, about how much music I can consume before I die. When iPods were new, we as music fans were at the precipice of something big. We were finally being catered to! Of course, just when we were gonna get that 500 GB iPod, Apple pulled the plug on music storage capacity in favour of Angry Birds, FaceTime and texting. So I'd like to gently propose a terabyte iPod. That's right -- a thousand gigabytes of free space meant only to keep 10,000+ records.
