    Yes, it could be called Planet of the Humans who are now Subservient to Simians. Boy were they surprised.

    Didn't both Wahlberg and Heston leave the Earth and get trapped in some kind of Space/Time Continuum?

    Therefore, coming back to Earth, many years in the future?

    That's why they had NASA on their spacesuits?

    "It is the year 2029: Astronaut Leo Davidson (Wahlberg) boards a pod cruiser on a Space Station for a "routine" reconnaissance mission. But an abrupt detour through a space time wormhole lands him on a strange planet where talking apes rule over the human race."

    - Tablet and smart devices and cloud storage ruling. No more local logins or servers
    - New input devices for computers
    - An Internet arms race
    - Move away from oil and some kind of related crisis
    - Probably some kind of war!

    I think gloves and glasses will replace tablets by then, but always-on high-bandwidth connectivity and cloud storage seems likely.

    The death of...
    Books (which saddens me greatly), postcards and paper mail.
    The oil and gas industry and k's of the elderly as they gouge out the last of their profits in soaring energy costs.
    Privacy

    The birth of ..
    Flexible screens widely available- heralding embedded video 'newspapers' ala Harry Potter.
    Genuinely unified communications - fully portable identities

    Not the cheeriest of outlooks but as the band Stars say "When there's noting left to burn you have to set yourself on fire"
    So maybe we need the catastrophic fail before the phoenix like rebirth.

    The original, with Chuck H, had the astronauts travelling through space for 2006 years, in suspended animation!
