What Connectivity Will $20/Month Buy In 2020?

Ten years ago, I paid $20 per month for dialup Internet access on my desktop computer. Today, I pay $20 for broadband access on a handheld computer that fits in my pocket, has enough battery power to last all day, and is vastly more powerful than my old tower.

What do you think personal computing will be like in 10 years? A straight line extrapolation would be gigabit wireless access for streaming HD3D straight to the retinal projector of my ring computer--all for that same $20 per month.

Thank you, Moore's Law, and thank you capitalism!
