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.

The new Nexus One is a sleek, awesome handset, but the most important ingredient in touchscreen smartphones is software. The screen is just a canvas that software paints on, and Android 2.1 is a work of art.
Once it emerged that Google's Nexus One wouldn't be on sale locally, it was inevitable that some people would try and turn a quick profit on eBay. ZDNet reports that Nexus One phones are already showing up on eBay at prices of $1,000 or more. Quite aside from the risks of buying any phone overseas, that seems a stupidly large amount of money.
Google's new Nexus One phone has been all over the news today, but the news for Aussies isn't all that good: you can't buy the phone direct from Google right now, and the only commitment the Big G will make to a release date is "soon".
Our siblings-in-tech over at Gizmodo are live at Google's Nexus One event, so if you're eager to see what Google's got in store today, join them now — the event's just begun.
Following up on our Monday morning roundup of "Google Phone"/Nexus One news, we thought we'd offer (just) one more bunch of news.
