Apps opening automatically from Chrome is supposed to be a convenience - but sometimes it's just annoying. Dealing with an intrusive iTunes window when you just wanted to see an app screenshot can be irksome, especially since iTunes doesn't even handle apps any more. Sometimes you just want to copy an email address, or download that torrent file instead of running it in Transmission. When apps open based on the links you hit, you can thank your browser's "protocol handlers". They're helpful, to a point, but you can get rid of the more annoying ones by following a few steps (or deleting some cookies).

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.
