As soon as I read the headline I found myself thinking about the Bill Gates book that came out in 1995.
So it was eery when the last paragraph in the article said pretty much the same thing.
As it is described, "The New Digital Age" calls to mind Bill Gates' 1995 book "The Road Ahead," which made a similar effort to predict the changes that would be wrought by the personal computing revolution. But predictions can be tough: In 2010, a review by The Atlantic found that Gates had gotten things mostly wrong.It is hard to predict the future in any meaningful detail.
