What will 2008 bring ?

December 30, 2007 at 13:05 Leave a comment

While 2007 was the year of Apple’s iPhone (which *still* isn’t available in Belgium 😦 ) and Microsoft’s failure to take over Adobe’s Flash, I believe it’s going to be an even more exiting 2008…

My personal views:

2008 will be the year of RIA’s (Rich Internet Applications) and technologies such as Flex will boom.

The penetration of Flash players will increase even more, and this is partly the result of many online applications popping up such as Adobe’s Kuler, Share and recently purchased BuzzWord. As soon as Adobe releases it’s online versions of Photoshop and Premiere, even more people will upgrade to the latest Flash player.

If you’re asking me, Adobe is playing it very smart… By releasing these fancy online tools — free of charge ! — people will get exposure to the Flash/Flex technology and, at the same time Adobe “forces” all users to upgrade to the latest version of Flash.

Lot’s of new (Web 2.0) sites will pop-up

Using the power of viral marketing and teasers, lots of new sites are beeing prepped for their big launch in January.

A few to watch out for: Singularity and Pistach.io both registered to Aral Balkan… (fyi: Aral has about 135 domains registered on his name !?)
