Dell recently collaborated with the Institute for the Future -- an interesting think tank largely driven by futurists, which focuses on helping firms ride future waves rather than being killed by them -- on a survey that creates a frightening view of 2030. It could be far closer to Terminator than the utopia we once hoped for. I think more companies should go through a process like this. The reason is that it could help overcome what has become an overwhelming trend to ignore the future and instead focus excessively on quarterly results.

I tend to agree with you to a certain extent. Incidentally, I was on another medium this morning where I saw a report that one of the largest set-top manufacturer is further sinking itself in debt with its M&A approach that simply did not work after purchasing a rival company. Yet, rather than innovate, this company is choosing the big fish devouring the small fish approach.AOL made this mistake when it acquired Time Warner Cable, only to off-load it. Google bought Motorola, then sold it to Arris Group. Cisco bought Linksy then sold it after making a mess of one of the best home networking gear of its time.Just look what Oracle has done to Sun Microsystem after the acquisition.Finally, If Apple isn't careful, they may end at the juncture Microsoft found itself. Fortunately for MS, they're a software company that had the right leadership at the right time that was able to transform it into a hardware company with an innovative approach to PC form factor.

I totally agree, most companies and bosses are totally clueless, have no idea what they are doing or where they are going. Greed often kills them off too

How do you feel about accidents that occur when self-driving vehicles are being tested?
Self-driving vehicles should be banned -- one death is one too many.
Autonomous vehicles could save thousands of lives -- the tests should continue.
Companies with bad safety records should have to stop testing.
Accidents happen -- we should investigate and learn from them.
The tests are pointless -- most people will never trust software and sensors.
Most injuries and fatalities in self-driving auto tests are due to human error.
