Is email beginning to follow post mail into terminal decline?

Predictions for 2015 are starting to make the rounds in the media, and one of the more curious comes from Fortune.com. The magazine is predicting that email will begin a slide into obsolescence next year.

The magazine wrote that because of the tremendous volume of email we all get now, and the increasing popularity of alternative messaging systems (like Yammer or Inbox Pause), people and companies will start to ween themselves off the system next year.

In fact, the article says that BlackBerry and Volkswagen have already adopted policies that aim to reduce the unmanageable amount of email their employees get everyday.

Elsewhere, the magazine predicts that in 2015 the Apple Watch will be a hit, the S&P 500 will close the year at 2015, and so-called "mom jeans" will become fashionable.

We'll see about that.
