Leading global analyst firm Gartner has released its annual Hype Cycle report and it’s thought provoking to see where these high-end specialists think various emerging technologies are in their path to mainstream adoption. Tablets, microblogging, cloud computing, machine/brain interfaces (!) and many more are included in this year’s report. Gartner believes that emerging technologies get hyped, overhyped, then face crashing disillusionment and are later finally understood as productive, mainstream parts of the world. Companies around the world pay $2,000 to read in-depth annual reports about the viability of each of these particular markets. Then they make buying and development decisions based on what they read.
