1) It will look completely different in a few years. By comparison, look how much it has already changed since its early days. It already looks totally unlike its original appearance. That rapid change of look will not only continue, it will get even more dramatic.

This change will be a direct result of so many different industries finding a larger face or any face at all on the internet. There will also be a dizzying increase of smartphone games and fitness trackers. In addition, it is creating value be connecting kitchens and household items to the internet for control purposes.
3) The next battlefield of app developers is getting their apps recognized and popularized. With the steady increase of app development, developers are going to be finding it harder and harder to get their apps noticed at all.

4) It is going to radically change driving. In the next few years most cars will be completely connected to the internet. The change has already started. Some experts predict that by the year 2020 that one out of five vehicles on the road will be thoroughly connected.
