Eric Schmidt is always a fun guy to listen too. In fact, last month he posted a very detailed post on Google+ of how to switch from iOS to Android. Which got a lot of people asking why he didn’t do a switching from Blackberry to Android guide, since he’s been a long time Blackberry user, and still might be. In a recent video, posted by Bloomberg, Schmidt lays out his predictions for 2014. Which is what we are all doing at this time of the year. Some of the predictions include everyone rocking a smartphone, a big investment from Google in social networking, and “unfathromably” important steps in finding additional treatments for cancer and other various diseases.
Just like the rest of us, his predictions are probably not 100% accurate, but it’s still interesting to see what he thinks will happen in 2014. I’d venture to guess that he’s right about the Google-related predictions like making a big investment in Social media. Since after all he is the chairman at Google. Also, Google has been working on Google+ like crazy lately, to make it a huge social network, which is what we all want. I love Google+, I don’t know about the rest of you but I spend the most of my time on Google+ compared to Facebook, or Twitter. We’ve got the full video at the bottom of this post for those that want to see it.
We also already know that Google is working on the next billion users, with KitKat. So I’m sure he’s also spot on with the fact that he thinks everyone will have a smartphone in 2014. With Android 4.4 – KitKat, Google has made Android available on almost every device. Well at least it can run on all Android devices, with at least 512MB of RAM.
How many of you are excited to see what Google does in 2014? Let us know in the comments below.
