cellphone - speaker = cellphone + lanyard earphones

Can you imagine a cellular phone without a speaker?

Instead, it will have lanyard earphones which stick from the top and can be used for:
1. standard talking
2. no hands talking (just increase the volume)
3. listening to music (just pull the lanyard out and separate the earphones)

Refrigerator camera

I know that one day, all of our groceries will have some kind of RFID and our refrigerator will order our food for us when it runs out.

But until then...

What about putting cameras inside our refrigerators and allowing some retailers to watch it and order the food for us?
The cameras and networking can be given for free in the exchange for the right to push some taste-related advertising.
I see you like instant macaroni, would you like some cheese with that?

Kinda big brother, but controllable...

Bill Gates is still thinking "files"

Bill Gates is still thinking "files" which is dead off target (imho). The world is going towards moving all data to databases (like wikis, blogs, google docs), files are becoming a thing of the past.

Access for the cloud

The next killer-app for the cloud will be a Microsoft Access-like application the will run fully on the cloud.

It's the weight, STUPID!

I'm very pleased that Apple has brought plenty competition with its iPhone 3G.
But I'm still amazed that all the iPhone wannabe's (HTC G1, BB storm, Nokia N97) haven't got the most basic thing right - the weight!
One of the iPhone's greatest achievements is packing all that tech into such a light-weight form factor.
The one who wants to beat the iPhone, has to pack better specs including a lighter weight.

HTC Android G1 - 5.6 ounces = 158.757329 grams
Black Berry storm - 5.46 ounces = 154.788396 grams
Nokia N97 - 5.2 ounces = 147.41752 grams
iPhone 3G - 4.7 ounces = 133.242759 grams
