2009 - A
The year something terrible happens to cloud computing: "Something happen to GMAIL? No, that's impossible." As soon as everyone has this frame of mind, boom goes the dynamite, and we all get a lesson in redundancy.
2009 - B
Starcraft 2 brings world peace, and no employees are trampled on opening day because if Blizzard is smart, it will be able to be digitally downloaded.
2009 - C
Linux and Open Source lay claim to 10% of enterprise: Let's face it our work computers are getting old. Open Office is getting awesome, and Windows is getting cold. I'm looking for a big push by companies and school in Linux and Open Software.
2009 - D
Verizon will try so hard to push out an Iphone competitor they will get hemorrhoids, and the Blackberry Storm will develop an exploding battery or another such devastating flaw as a result of it's quick release.
2009 - E
Gas Prices will hit record lows, and people will start getting a false sense of security, and I will be able to sell my SUV before prices return to a constant level of $2.50 per gallon.
2009 - F
Microsoft will finally eliminate support for Internet Explorer 6, and IT departments in large companies would finally start to update browser software, but in doing so, the cost of upgrading in man hours would be equivalent to rolling out a new operating system for a few of the companies leading to the implementation of 2009-C (see above)
2009 - G
Thousands of Florida residents will be scammed into buying additions devices to assure their televisions will continue to work.
2009 - H
Twitter is purchased by facebook, twitter fanbase rebels, starts Tweeter and promptly goes bankrupt. Facebook appears to have won, but doesn't get away with changing the architecture, and just plain looses money for the next decade, while supporting the existing style and habits of twitter existing users.
All is well with the cosmos,
