Bill Gates Working Hard To Prove His Own Prediction Was Correct
from the there-will-be-a-digital-wallet,-dammit dept
In the mid-90s, if you saw Bill Gates speak, he almost always brought up the idea of the digital wallet he expected us all to be carrying by the end of the decade/century/millennium. Of course, things didn't quite turn out that way, but it appears Gates has gone back to pushing the idea. His latest speech sounds an awful lot like those talks from a decade ago, and you almost get the feeling that Gates is now pushing for the digital wallet more to prove he was right than because he actually thinks that's what people want.
