A World without Email?

If imagining a world without email fills you with glee and a sense of relief, then you may be interested in a new report by ad agency JWT (formerly J. Walter Thompson). In its report on future trends in personal technology, JWT says that email is widely regarded as a productivity drain. However, with no alternative fully in sight, we are both victims and beneficiaries of this and other personal technologies which we have wrought.

So where are we going from here? According to the report trends in personal technology include:

  • The use of mobile devices will continue to increase

  • Television and computers will continue to converge

  • Netbooks will increase in popularity
