Predictions for 2014 are plentiful from the psychic’s that folks idolize to the financial guru’s that have people hanging on their every move. One prediction that looks pretty promising is the movement you will see with Amazon, which will jump off the pages of your electronic devices and become a tangible three-dimensional part of everyday life.
Forbes even suggests in an article published on Dec. 26, that Amazon will even start to play nice with publishers. Amazon has many irons in the fire such as, reviving the U.S. Postal System with Sunday deliveries, the debut of the Mayday customer service button, the marquee feature for its latest Kindle Fire tablets.
Not only will Amazon become more present on the road through seven-day mail delivers and in your homes offering every item known to mankind just a click away on your computer, but it will take over the lower airways of your cities and towns. Drones delivering Amazon packages is something that isn’t too far away from materializing.
1. The long-rumored Amazon Smartphone arrival is one prediction for 2014. This won’t be just any smart phone, Amazon will create a smartphone to blow all others away.
2. Kindle will become a tutor for the kids. With educational apps being developed, your kids won’t need to go very far to find one of the best tutors out there.
3. Amazon produces a show that gets an Emmy nomination. Netflix did it, Amazon isn’t going to let the possibility of developing a live-streaming show to entertain the masses slip by. Now that it has been done by Netflix, will Amazon do it better? Right now Amazon is working on two shows similar to “The Wire” and “The X-Files.”
4. Amazon has saturated all the other electronic devices, so TV is its next target. “Amazon is already testing ways for users to “fling” their streaming video content from their tablet to a TV," according to CNet.
5. Amazon Prime, which is a service that people pay for now, will open up and incorporate grocery delivery, same day delivery service and tons of other perks.
