The Future of the Internet is the Web application!
From the USATODAY story:
The Internet will be less about going to big sites like Yahoo and Amazon.com and more about using specialized pieces of software that connect to the Net. Two current examples: Napster and the Miller Lite Beer Pager.
Wow, the future is now!

I'd say that these are awfully conservative predictions at best, synching my travel site arrangements with my calendar. That's innovation? That's the tip of the iceberg!

What this article meant to say, but didn't (at least in so many words) is that the web is going to be ubiquitous. Or, as I've heard someone say: everything that can be, will be.

Or is that, whatever will be will be.....the future's not ours to see, que sera, sera....

Is that the Miller Lite Beer Pager, or the Miller Lite Beer pager? Because, you know, I'm on a GDI Resources diet.
