Subject: I have a huge feeling that 2015 and 2016 are gonna be big years of change

I agree about this year. I think 2015 will be an improvement from 2014 (it can't get much worse) and I think 2016 will be even better with the Olympics in Brazil. However, I don't think they will be the years of big change. Culturally I think they will be tied with 2013 and 2014 to be one distinct period (the core years of the 2010's). 2017 is the year that's going to be a change, for the simple fact that Obama will be out of office (I can't wait for that!)

I think 2015 and 2016 are going to be big years of change too. Generally the middle of every decade is different from the beginning of the decade. I don't see much changing in Washington DC in 2015. Congress will continue doing nothing and wasting tax money investigating Benghazi and trying to repeal Obamacare for the 200th time. 2016 will shake up the White House. I don't see any of the Republicans becoming president unless the tea party conservatives get kicked out. New inventions and technology will be introduced.  I don't think music will change too much.

Yeah the aeromobil prototype looks cool, but it has wings so the car doesn't actually hover in the air, more like a small plane. Same as the hoverboards as they have to use magnets to get them to work. It's physically impossible for an object to hover in the air without some kind of force. Maybe in 1000 years they will discover something that makes it possible for objects to float in the air, like an invisible foce you can't see or feel, but for now it's impossible but the prototypes of the flying cars and hoverboards we have now are still pretty cool!  :P

Actually, I really think the next 2 years are going to have huge changes. There are going to be hoverboards, robot security guards, and possibly a female president or another democrat president. music is going to change from EDM to another genre. The millennials/Gen Y are going to have an huge impact on the world as the last members will graduate high school during that time. More baby boomers will be retiring. Social media is gonna be more bigger than ever. Gen Z will also have a large impact on the world as the early members will be in high school and they will be able to work, plan their future, and anything else that comes to mind.

Hover boards, flying cars, Nike power laces, more advanced smart watches, improved lower priced Google Glass, New prime minister (hopefully), Improvements on Oculus Rift, Project Morpheus, Ello, flexible smartphone displays, release of Windows 10, 4k resolution commonplace and more. All of these things are expected for 2015/2016. So I can see a lot of changes coming up. Mid 2010s are finally starting to look fun.

It will eventually be so big that it will become ubiquitous. It will be everywhere you go without noticing it or needing a phone or device to use it. It will be a part virtual reality in everyday life where you have all your social networking information is literally in front of your eyes whenever you need it. If you want to look up information about someone you simply glance at their direction and results about the person will appear immediately in front of your eyes using fast online search. But this will will happen within the next 20 years.

I've been on this website since 2011, and I can assure you no one said this back then. No one expected 2013 to be different from 2012, and it wasn't, because 2013 was early 2010s. No one also expected a huge change in 2014 either, but we expected change since it was the mid '10s, and it happened. There wasn't a ridiculous amount of change, but enough to distinguish it from at least 2010.

I know, they always say that

No they don't...


Anyways, the "4" year of a decade is always more like the early years than the rest of the middle years. 2014 isn't any different. 2015 will be the last year to have any connection to the early 2010s, as with any "5" year and their respective decade.

Usually the second year is the last year to have holdovers from the previous decade. 2014 is just as much mid 2010s as 2016 is.

I don't think you understand what I'm saying. I never stated 2014 had 2000s holdovers. I'm saying that people will look back at 2014 and probably confuse it with the early 2010s. 2014 was fresh off the early 2010s as it was only the first year of the middle era. It takes time for the culture to grow and change. 2015 is only the second year. The early 2010s were only two years ago, so there will still be some holdovers. 2016 will be 100% mid 2010s, and the differences from the early years will be obvious.

Eras, like decades, are not cut and dry. They bleed into each other. Change doesn't happen overnight. 2008 changed a lot, but it didn't start that way. Late 2008 was pretty different, sure, but early 2008 wasn't all that different from 2004.  We just need to let time do it's job.

This year could see a complete shake up for...

Four of the world's biggest tech giants - Apple, Google, Intel and Adobe - have agreed to a new settlement of $415m (£273.5m) in an attempt to resolve a lawsuit. The US lawsuit alleged the firms agreed not to poach staff from each other. It claimed the alleged agreement prevented workers from getting better job offers elsewhere. The 2011 US case had claimed $3bn in damages on behalf of more than 64,000 workers at the four firms. The latest attempt to settle the case for $415m, which was filed in court on Thursday, comes after a US judge rejected a $324.5m settlement offer last year.

Things are starting to change. If you look at the iTunes charts, new songs are kicking out the old songs. We're in March, so we're at the end of the beginning of the year. The true 2015 is kicking in and 2014's influence is rapidly declining.

I think there will be another crash, somewhere 2017-2020.
China has a housing bubble, we all solved the financial crisis with pain killers, but did not solve the structural problems underneath; all debts are rising. Will debts ever diminish? Or are we letting it grow to more than 1000%? Is that even healthy? Stock markets keep rising, that's another risk.
We'll see  :-\\

There won't be a big change until 2017 or 2018. The later years are always the ones that have the most change.

Not true. Change always happens sometime in the beginning of the second half of a decade. I've always noticed it happens in the year ending with a six.

I've recently been listening to quite a bit of music from 1986, and late-'80s style hair metal and dance-pop became cool that year. Also, if you look at what was fashionable that year, the clothing wasn't all that different from the late '80s. Just watch any music video from 1986 for proof.

When it comes to the 70s, bell-bottoms began their decline that year and disco was already popular by then. There was no leftover hippie vibe that year, although that was probably out by 1974. I recommend watching the 1976 movies "Car Wash" (named after the song!) and "Carrie". It's a good way to get a look of the fashion trends of that year.

In the '90s, 1996 was definitely a real game-changer for fashion. Music also changed, but it still sounded very mid-'90s.

See? Afterwards not much changed until about 2001 when bling-bling became cool and shiny fabrics went out of style.

For the 2000s, it's too soon to say. But in 2006 things changed and electropop and skinny jeans became fashionable. Skinny jeans continue today, and electropop is out but electronic music is still in. 2005, however, is often times mistaken for the early 2000s.

Electropop did not become popular in 2006.... That was 2008 when Lady Gaga first appeared and rap turned electronic and dance oriented. There wasn't a single electropop song in 2006 other than Justin Timberlakes Sexy Back. 2006 had the same music and trends Emo, MySpace, flip phones, etc. 2008 is when the economy changed, the president changed, the music changed, fashion changed, and social media and technology started to change. 2006 was not full of changes especially compared to 2008.

The biggest change was skinny jeans! And I'm not just talking about celebrities. I distinctly remember skinny jeans becoming popular that year. It may have been different in Canada, but I'm an American, so I'm going by my experience.

Electropop entered the mainstream in 2006. It didn't explode like it did in 2008. It was already really popular in 2007. Lady Gaga didn't start it, she just released her music when it began it's cycle. It's true that 2006 was mostly mid 2000s, and the majority of the music could have been popular in 2004, but you could see it coming in hindsight. Here are some electronic-heavy songs of 2006:

1. SexyBack - Justin Timberlake
2. Me & U - Cassie
3. SOS - Rihanna
4. Everytime We Touch - Cascada
5. I'm N Luv - T Pain
6. My Love - Justin Timberlake
7. Bossy - Kelis
8. Hung Up - Madonna
9. Smack That - Akon
10. You - Lloyd

Only 10 songs, but it's a start. Electropop "officially" began in 2006, and went on from there. I don't know how many of these were popular in Canada, I'm just going by U.S. music.

Those songs aren't electropop. I think of Electropop as autotune and actual techno beats. S.O.S. is definitely not electropop and sounds mid 00s like something released in 2003. Those songs are similar to "Yeah" by Usher or Promisculous by Nelly Furtado, the distinct 00s sound. But not electropop like the 2010s which exploded in 2008 with actual autotune/techno/edm.

Another way to look at it is in 2007 Timbaland started the trend in the early part of the year, with "Give It to Me" and "The Way I Are" both being electro. They are hip-hop, but are also dance too.

Nobody knows. Maybe music, economy, fashion, technology, etc.

Most likely music in 2017 and economy in 2018. Fashion is already changing, which started in 2014. The more formal clothing of 2014 was very different from 2013 and it was less colorful. The dresses of 2010-13 were long, loose, and loud. In 2014, they became shorter and more muted in color. Here is a picture of early 2015 dresses (which were the same as those of 2014):

Men's polos in early 2015:

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/e8/Men%27s_Polo_Shirts_2015.JPG/1920px-Men%27s_Polo_Shirts_2015.JPG

I know for a fact that you would have been considered "boring" or "dowdy" if you wore any of those colors in 2013.

Anyway, I didn't see any objections from you about the fashion, so I must have convinced you about it. The fashion of the middle years of a decade continues to remain fashionable in the later years (which is why people consider the defining fashion of a decade to be the middle and later years, for good reason.).

I'm going to have to disagree. I don't think 2005 can be confused with the early 2000's at all, except maybe the first few months when 50 Cent was still popular. I think 2005 can relate more with 2008 than 2002, with the MySpace, emo, and scene culture. Some of the songs you listed are 2005 songs.
