Geek stuff, sci-fi... In the latest study conducted by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, over 700 technology experts were asked to evaluate an assortment of scenarios in an attempt to determine potential trends for the year 2020.

People will not be allowed to manually drive their cars in a 3-D space. The flying cars will all be controlled by Windows software and part of the EULA will obsolve MicroSoft from any liability for death or dismemberment in the event of a system crash at 3,000 feet moving at 235 mph. I am sure they will have a groovy new startup sound for your car though.
