In this episode of The Full Nerd, Gordon Ung, Brad Chacos, Alaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray wrap up episode 200 of The Full Nerd with the holiday tradition of eating their own words.
Journalists make predictions all the time, and normally there’s no consequences for being flat-out wrong. For example, we said Intel would not introduce a 10nm desktop CPU in 2021 (wrong), AMD would introduce a Zen-based Threadripper this year (wrong), and Microsoft’s long-awaited DirectStorage would finally appear (wrong). We at The Full Nerd were wrong. In the spirit of accountability, the TFN crew invites you to watch as we admit to and suffer the shame of our poor 2021 forecasts.
Even more impressive, for this 200th episode, we go back and look at predictions we made from the 100th episode in 2019 that were also wrong, and right. We finally cap off the episode with our predictions for what the world will look like in 2025, when we should be on episode 300 of The Full Nerd.
