Tech wish list for 2013

From the rise of 3D printing to finding an end to the ongoing patent wars, here are the 10 things we would like to see happen in 2013.

A year ago, I made 10 tech predictions for 2012 and I am pleased to say that they were mostly accurate, or at least not dramatically wrong. I, like others, did think that Apple would release a TV, which they didn’t and now I am less convinced that they will in 2013 and even if they do it will not be the “next big thing”. Although Apple didn’t fall apart after the loss of Steve Jobs, they haven’t actually convinced anyone that they are going to be the drivers of any revolutionary change either (expect more of the same from Apple in 2013).

However, rather than making any new predictions for 2013, I thought I would instead talk about 10 things I would most like to see happen in the tech world next year, regardless of how realistic they might be.
