    I have to disagree that virtual worlds are going to be part of Web 3.0. If you take a look at what web 2.0 encapsulates it is all about simplicity. I think we’ve seen the web move toward this magic ‘3.0’ with the advent touch screens and as a result I feel it’s very likely we’re going to have this simplicity aspect for a lot longer.

    I agree. I think touch-screen is certainly interesting. The latest Windows OS appears to offer this functionality. The iPhone is also great for web browsing, but is terrible for texting.
    I would really like speech recognition as well. I can see various handheld devices offering this. You could simply ask the question to Google and it will respond verbally with an answer.

    Well most versions of Windows have had Touch Screen. But Windows 7 (using it now, it’s fantastic. One of the best OS’s from Microsoft since.. well maybe ever). brings Multi-touch. (Giving the ablity to rotate images with ease for example, and right clicking with fingers). It will be intresting to see if the PC keeps same feeling as it does not, that is to say will we even sit down at the PC?
