Best of 2009: New services we’d like to see

Call it wishful thinking, but we’d love to see some new – and promised – services in 2010; and not just from Google either:

  •  Completely cloud-based media: photos, music, books, etc.
  •  Augmented reality for mobile goes mainstream
  •  Social search. We want our search engines to anticipate our every move and respond accordingly.

More after the break, including our readers’ responses…

  •  Targeted ads that are truly targeted. Similar to search – if consumers can give up their privacy concerns that is.
  •  A true single-pay, three-screen content service – access to full cable/IPTV content on PC and mobile devices with no extra cost and true ease-of-use
  •  More femtocells and more femtocell apps

Best Reader Response: A truly unified home gateway, including music, video, etc., with VERY FEW WIRES.

Honorable Mention: single contract plans across all services

(While it’s not a new idea, it is worth noting there were also a lot of votes for 4G networks – both WiMax and LTE.)

Coming next: The years’ most interesting exits and biggest foot-in-mouth moments.

It’s not too late to enter to win $50. Take the survey here: Best & Worst of 2009 SURVEY
