Predictions for 2008?

Engadgetdamus bids you greetings. With MMVII in the can, we can only direct our ponderations to what fantastical gadgets and events await in the new year. We beseech you, foretell the year's events and present your predictions. Will Android be an out of the gate success, or a slow starter? Will Microsoft without Bill Gates be worse (or better) off? Will Vonage see Jan. 1, 2009? And will we all have multi-touch DisplayPort monitors by then? Will consumers turn on Apple? Will Palm give up the ghost? Can we finally dump our spinning-disk drives in favor of SSDs? Only your latent Engadgetdamus knows what will transpire in MMVIII -- let him speak.
