I've all but given up with keeping business cards. My preferred tool for capturing business cards and other bits of paper that float around at meetings and events has been Evernote. The Premium subscription that I pay for lets me scan stuff. The app then performs OCR so the contents can be easily searched. Business card scanning has a nifty feature where it can automatically connect you on LinkedIn and/or send your contact details (a digital business card) over email. Microsoft has now updated their camera app for iOS, Microsoft Pix, so it can recognise documents, whiteboards and business cards.With this latest update, Microsoft has added the ability to recognize and scan blackboards - for students at hipster schools I guess.

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.
