I think there's a home entertainment gap that will soon be fixed. (i.e. google + sony teaming up), but it's gonna take a while to develop and adopt.

I personally would like to see something PC based that actually ties together all my entertainment systems and media. There's some stuff out there, but nothing as versatile as what I want to do. I've got hundreds of backed up dvds, thousands of mp3's, i use hulu, I stream over netflix, a little youtube here and there, I have several tv's around the house, laptops spread around the house, disparate sound systems per room, guitar amps and pedals, just think of all your inputs/outputs. I want them to ALL talk to each other SEAMLESSLY.

Oh, and of course my truck - i want to be able to control it all from my truck, along side the house lighting system, the security system, my coffee maker, anything with a circuit board and comms capability.

I want a real mesh network that ties everything together in my house - all of it, no exceptions. And the command and control software to run it all, from wherever I want, whenever I want, and to do it SECURELY. And I want it from a reputable vendor that will support it for life, with forwards and backwards compatibility, and a useful support line.

Once somebody breaks into that realm, there will be copycats - and an entire market will appear overnight.

ooh maybe society will become obsessed with morals and values and try to bring those back to life???? Then again, why would they when they can have role models like overpaid athletes who shoot themselves with illegal guns in clubs and fight dogs and act like children all around. Not to mention the coke head stars and "situations" of reality TV. What ever happened to news that covered "news" and not opinions and views? Ok soap box is getting slippery getting down now

It seems like they are glorifying teen pregnancy....Also there are a few shows on other channels that seem to glorify students sleeping with teachers...

A trend towards rational thought and living within one's means would be nice, but given the current popularity of Jersey Shore I imagine we'll end up with another hollow fad that'll in the end cause more harm than good.

I'd invest in "Ow! My Balls!" if it was ever pitched as a television show.

Then a single "smart phone" will get struck by lightning, becoming an entity of its own. Which after doing so will some how control alot of our technology with out us know so. Which will ultimately lead to our own doom....brought on by ourselves.

I think Flappers (from Gulliver's Travels) should be the next big trend.

As soon as Gulliver steps onto the floating island, he is surrounded by a crowd of people. He finds them very strange even though they are of a size similar to his. Their heads are slanted to the left or right, and their clothes have pictures of either musical instruments or astronomical signs.
Gulliver learns that he is on Laputa. The people here have terribly short attention spans, so they carry around "Flappers." These are used for hitting other people during conversation in order to keep them focused.

I've watched it a couple times to see what it's about and I got the impression that it is meant to de-glorify teen pregnancy, showing the hardships and difficulties associated with teen pregnancy, especially aspects like family relationships, relationships with the other parent, financial difficulties, etc.
However, MTV was never created to air shows like that.

I'm old now (47) but I can tell you that with the exception of electronics nothing is really new, it's same recycled shit over and over again.

But stuff I'd like to see go:
Skinny jeans on men and fat chicks
Those stupid Pork Pie hats
Fauxhawks (What the fuck, just cut it into a Mowhawk and grow a pair)
20+ inch rims with rubber band tires.
Hipster dudes with skinny jeans, pork pie hats and scarves.
