I really wonder what will happen. It's just all too much, much too quickly.
Technology is moving at such a pace that consumers can't keep up with it. Broadcasters and domestic consumers have only relatively recently gone HD, and then 3-D pops its head up. It hasn't really taken off, has it? Now 4K...and then hot on its heels, will be 8K.
You almost feel like things are moving so quickly, just let the boffins go away for a couple of years, and come back with brain implants that will receive hi-res pictures and multi-surround sound directly. Or was that Blade Runner?
The public can only take so much, at so quick a pace of change. And even though there are plenty of rich f*ckers around now, seemingly unaffected by the financial downturn, there probably aren't enough to enable manufacturers to start making stuff in realistic quantity to justify it.
Whole world's gone crazy.
