Last week, during Microsoft's annual Ignite shindig, the company unveiled the latest version of their database platform SQL Server.

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.
