Geek Squad guy looks into future of tech and news

Discovered this today. Worth watching. Robert Stephens, founder of the Geek Squad, prognosticates on technology's near future.

It's from the Future of News conference in Minnesota this past November.

"It feels like the last 40 years are all coming to a head where normal people will have high speed in their pocket."

"There's really only four screens that we are planning on as the plumbers of the future to support" the mobile phone ("the main event, it is the computer; everything else is just a piece of glass that connects to a network"), the anticipated tablet computers, flat screen TVs that really are "large iPod Touches" and in-vehicle systems.
