Predicting what technology will be available in X years is pretty much impossible. On of my jobs at Sandia was to try to see what was coming.
Anyone remember bubble memory?

Gwynne: The safest thing is that, unless the tech has to be described for some
important plot point, the writer uses a vaguely SF-ish term, and lets the reader
figure out the details for themselves, based on tech at the time.
