In SciFi predictions (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2015-05-21 15:10 (#9FS4) The article forgot to mention that AI may make all knowledge workers redundant!!!So if some technology that is 'on the cusp' comes to fruition and people adapt it widely and their purchasing patterns change drastically then the 'big 3' - that used to be the 'big 5', but which have been failing to meet consumer desires - may need to adapt.I'm waiting with baited breath.

Re: In SciFi predictions (Score: 1) by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2015-05-21 23:57 (#9GNW) Quite right - big 3. Was it airlines that used to be the big 5?Anyway, the points are that US manufacturers haven't been keeping ahead, and lots of stuff would have to change for there to actually be something for them to adapt to.Not that I'm hoping things won't change. I want my next car to drive itself.
