Wacky Forecasts for Digital in 2014

Ramesh Srivats of digital branding firm TenTenTen provided some hilarious ones in Businessworld:
All births will be announced on Facebook, and all deaths on Twitter. Google Plus will look on enviously.
Flipkart will get a few hundred million dollars from VCs in March, July, and maybe November"
The unkindest cut however was reserved for the future of the newspaper:
The newspaper, in the meanwhile, will become a useful archive of all the stuff you read the previous day. It will totally integrate with your digestive system — wrapper for samosas, napkin to wipe mouth, fan to keep you cool while digesting, and companion while ejecting said samosas.
Ouch! Ouch! and Ouch!

PS: Obviously, the article was published well before the sad passing away of Sunanda Tharoor
