10 top technologies for 2009, from Technology Review


What are the 10 technologies that will knock our socks off this year? Technology Review magazine takes its annual look at what's in the pipeline. Among them: cyborgs, a chip that will analyze your genome for $100, and software to speed up the 'Net. Hurray!

One of these new technologies, currently called Siri, is that personal assistant software they've been promising me for ages. This year's model, they say, will be a mobile app that responds to either voice or typed commands and will do only relatively simple things like making restaurant reservations and checking flight status.

Bring it on--and please figure out a way to connect it to my Roomba so I can order up a clean kitchen floor before I get home.
