Kind of kills the enthusiast and tinker market.

Intel's Haswell May Be Last Interchangeable Desktop CPU?

Yes mate it is a real backward step and when that happens I suppose it means whole new motherboards etc
Very akin to heading down the road of "apps" and I think personally they are going to shoot themselves in the foot I for one will go AMD if I can't get Intel chips anymore. Not that I use one every other day but you know what I mean.

The folks I feel for are the hard core gamers, graphics enthusiasts, and people like me who just like to build and have the ability to swap out CPU's or whatever.

Which then begs the question how long before RAM, GPU's etc etc are all one integrated "board" - perish the thought

Anyway there is still the Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge around now about time to stock up on a few and few boards too.

As for Intel well I suppose it is all money driven as usual

I see in 10 years there will be no more desktops and very few laptops. Mostly tablets with more peripherals on it like HDMI ports, VGA ports, USB ports, etc

In 10 years I'll probably have over 20 TB of data (I've got ~4 TB now, not counting backups).
It isn't going to be practical to use the "Cloud" (or USB3) for storage and backup (too slow, not to mention the data charges).

Tablets screens are too small for picture/video editing.
I've got a 23" monitor (1080p) and it's only adequate for those tasks.
A 30" monitor (2560x1600) would be a lot more effective.

But you are basing that on what we know now, today.
In 10 years time who knows what speeds my internet may run at? I might be on a GB/s WiFi connection....hell I might even be using a Subspace communication system as seen on Star Trek. (Quantum Theorists are already working on faster than light transmissions).

Who would have thought 5 years ago, that my 4g enabled phone would have a faster internet connection than my home broadband?? If it wasn't for data charges I would be better off tethering to my phone!!

We are already seeing data being talked about in 'petabytes', how long until the first 1PB drive hits the shops??

To stand here now and say, the mouse will die, the desktop is obsolete, cloud storage isn't fast enough is folly. Most of us have been on the ride for a while now...my first computer was the ZX81 with 1kb memory, that was only 28 years ago. If we continue to innovate at the same rate as the last 30 years who knows what we will be accessing this forum on!!

Somehow, I just don't see internet providers (and even governments) suddenly becoming generous towards us lowly users. ISPs are in the business to make money which usually means throttled speeds, limited up/downloads, etc. No matter what the innovations, I'm sure AT&T will continue to hose me.

And don't get me started on government restrictions. If we ARE eventually allowed to make full use of new innovations I can guarantee there will be greater government intervention (probably in the form of new/higher taxes for the "privilege" of using these innovations) which, in turn, will lead to a more "elitest" accessibility to those innovations.

I mean, nuclear power has been available for a while now (think nuclear powered submarines and aircraft carriers.) But I sure as heck can't make use of this technology for my own personal use. Besides, at my advanced age I'll be lucky if I see the start of the next decade!

Pray tell, then, how people will do word processing, large spread sheets, display multiple windows simultaneously, serious graphics, especially animation, serious gaming, etc? Real keyboards are still king for typing large amounts quickly. The mouse is still the best device to use when using large screens. Tablets are great, or even superior, for certain applications but, other than for some applications that require portability, are pretty much useless for office applications. Businesses will still be using mostly desktops ten years from now.

No, not VGA. VGA is not content controlled. Devices must be locked down and VGA is not.
I also think desktops will be around. In my home we have 6 desktops, 1 laptop and no locked down walled garden fondle slabs (tablets). The only tablets I have are my medications.
No plans to ever get a tablet or touch screen either. If anyone sticks their finger print on my screen I read them the riot act.
OK I lighten up now.

FTL= time travel --> causality violations (paradoxes) ---> everything we know would be wrong, which is impossible, because it works. There is no escape from this.

The next big thing is photonics, that is swapping electricity with light in computing. It is much faster, less waste heat, less power draw. But isn't FTL.
