In this post I'm going to do predictions about how will be the hardware of the future, but not guiding me neither by the movement of the stars nor the Tarot cards, instead I'm going to base my predictions in the market evolution and some trends.

Alan Turing
In an epoch in that only were a few mechanic calculators, Alan Turing, was able to define the working, the limits and the possibilities of the computers. He not only was ahead to his epoch, but also to the actual and if had not been suicided, probably he would invented something that would convert the computers in something obsolete.
