If by "near" you mean "not even remotely close" then sure.

USB3.1 stuff is just now starting to trickle out, Samsung is just getting their feet wet with 3D stacking of NAND and DRAM, Toshiba and Micron are only slightly behind.
New drives will have the same encryption thats becoming increasingly common, storage densities will be higher, and over all performance will go through the roof. The Max throughput of a 3.1 drive should be something north of 800mb/s accounting for overhead. Even if you were moving 4K movies back and forth thats incredibly fast.

I can't see something like this falling out of use ever. Even 4gb USB2.0 drives are handy still. Plus some of them just look fucking cool.

Seriously a few days ago I nioticed you can get a very high quality (robust, should last forever) 16gb USB stick for just a few bucks.

I'm going to load some linux distros and other random shit (some music) on there, basically a sufficient computing environment for me if things hit the fan and my other devices break.

Coles Natural Spring Water
http://shop.coles.com.au/online/national/coles-water-spring-600ml-bottles-7906946p

The major brands that describe themselves as "spring" or "mineral" water are genuine natural spring water, including Mount Franklin, Fiji Water, Pump and the Coles and Woolworths home brands.

But supermarket and convenience stores stock brands that describe themselves as "purified" or "organic" and are in fact the same water available in every home for less than one cent a litre.

Filtered tap water - brands such as Aqua Pura, Mizone, Noble's Pureau, Nature's Best Organic, Active Organic and Refresh - are sold in Coles, Woolworths, Franklins and IGA as well as petrol stations and convenience stores.

http://www.news.com.au/finance/money/tapwater-sold-as-bottled-water-gets-180000-per-cent-mark-up/story-e6frfmd9-1226458017974

I wonder how long before everything will be cloud based including OS's themselves.
Just onLive-like streaming for the most barebones work (or rather "entertainment" seeing how it's less and less only about doing work) -stations, with little subs here and there (more like everywhere, am I rite G-men?).
That would be something.
Also, TOS could be written so that end user (lender of the limited license) ends up not owning shit, his work included. This could work, right?

According to Coles themselves: Our National Quality team has advised that Soda Water is made from tap water which is then carbonated by our supplier, whereas natural spring mineral water is source from a naturally carbonated spring. Both go through the same filtration systems and sterilisation measures to ensure the best quality.

Coles has done recalls on their bottled water due to algae. They provide genuine spring water as opposed to tap water which typically has a very strange taste. There are some parts of Australia where the tap water tastes ok but I prefer spring water.
