Living in the Cloud

2010 could be the year more of us start living in the cloud. Cloud computing is the popular term for storing documents, music, photos and other digital content online. Apple's recent purchase of the streaming music website lala.com has people speculating that the next big move for iTunes is into the cloud. Many expect Apple to introduce a service that lets you stream an unlimited amount of music online, similar to a limitless jukebox that follows you wherever you go. The benefits would be you would never have to download a song again.

Wii Rivals Swing Back

The Nintendo Wii revolutionized the video game industry, but this is the year Microsoft and Sony are expected to swing back. They're planning to introduce new motion controllers for the XBox and PlayStation. The XBox will do away with a remote control entirely and use a camera that captures your every punch, kick, twist and turn. Sony will more closely match what the Wii offers with a similar wand-like remote.
