7 Predictions for 2016

  1. The drone deliveries. The Washington Post purchase. The rocket nonsense. Forget all that. This is the year you’re gonna finally learn the secret Jeff Bezos never wanted to you know about: We’re running out of cardboard.
  2. It will finally dawn on Apple customers that there is no advantage to pre-ordering a movie that you plan to stream. Pre-ordering just means you get to give Apple your money sooner.
  3. McDonald’s made its breakfast menu available all day. And it worked. When something works in food, they all do it. Everyone from French Laundry to Jean-Georges will be doing breakfast for dinner. Jiro is gonna dream of french toast.
  4. Max Zuckerberg launches her first startup and raises a pre-seed round at a $1b pre-money valuation. It’s like Uber for existence. And it’s called Max. (Some controversy emerges when it leaks that Dad bought her the domain address with the LLC.)
  5. We’ll either have peace in the Middle East or Apple will break iTunes into several apps that are both appropriately named and actually usable. (My money is on the former.)
  6. Star Wars mania will continue unabated even after everyone has seen the movie. And no one will have any idea how to turn it off.
  7. Some institution will lay claim to being the last university to rescind the honorary degree they gave to Bill Cosby.

I write NextDraft, a quick and entertaining look at the day’s most fascinating news.
