ABSTRACT
The article presents several forecasts from Paul McNamara of Network World Magazine, on issues that can affect the U.S. computer industry in the year 2009. McNamara cites Apple will still be in the business with a few Macs for those temperamental artists, and a couple of iPhones for the professionals. Another is Microsoft's Steve Ballmer's criticism about pretty much anything, especially Google. And civil liberties on the phone, the Internet, and even real life which he thnks won't matter again until January 20, 2009.
