In the eWEEK special report "Technology in 2009", I look at many of the new product and company announcements of recent months and use this information to predict some of the key emerging technology trends that we should expect to see for 2009.
To go along with this special report, I've also compiled this slideshow showing some of the recent and recently announced products that are good examples of the technologies expected to gain prominence in 2009. These products should help, or are already helping, to push these important technologies forward.
So take a look at this slideshow of The Important Technologies of 2009. And also read the Tech Most Likely to be Ignored in 2009, in which I look at some technologies that should be important and receive attention in 2009 but will likely be mostly ignored.
