While short on too many specifics, Bill Gates believes there will be tremendous innovation in technology going forward. Gates was specific in the area of TV where he predicted that the TV and computer will merge. As this happens, we can expect incredible flexibility in the content we have access to. There will be customized TV channels for example.
"I don’t see anything that will stop the rapid advance," Gates said, noting that technological change driven by academia and corporate researchers continued even after the Internet stock bubble burst in 2000.
