The Future, According to Google's Results

Today's XKCD comic explores the future using the top Google results for queries like "by the year *", "by <year> *". According to Google's search results, one year after the 2012 Apocalypse, "microchipping of all Americans begins". In 2014 "GNU/Linux becomes the dominant OS" and by the year 2020, HTML5 is finished and "newspapers become obsolete and die out".


Here's the entire future timeline, which includes prediction about Android, US debt, India, world population, global warming and robot policemen.
