We challenged you to come up with tech predictions for 2024 (wrong answers only) – here are some favorites so far

Plus some of our own and the ugly Microsoft sweater one of you will win. Please take it off our hands...

Kettle The other day we challenged our fine Register readers to share their top technology predictions for 2024 – though with wrong answers only. The best suggestion will win an old ugly Microsoft-themed Christmas sweater.

You can check out that contest here: it's got about a couple of hundred comments already, and we'll pick the winner at the end of the week. Feel free to dive in and take part. Think of it as an antidote to all the bleedin' obvious IT forecasts we're about to be buried in as the year draws to a close.

For this latest Kettle, we decided to go through some of our favorite reader submissions so far – there's no final decision yet – make a few of our own terrible predictions for the next 12 months, and generally blow off some steam about this year's news.

You can replay our knees-up below – or listen in via your favorite podcast distributor when available: RSS and MP3, Apple, Amazon, Spotify, and Google.

On today's 19-minute show we have, clockwise from top left in the thumbnail, vultures Brandon Vigliarolo, Richard Speed, Chris Williams, and host Iain Thomson.

This episode was produced and edited by Nicole Hemsoth Prickett. You can find previous Kettles right here. ®
