    very interesting - thanks for posting that, I'm realising that my staple of reflections and glossy boxes is now so last year.

    I think the graident type glassy look has gone off a little now. I mean logo's such as the argos one etc have all gone flat coloured looking.

    I think it depends on the site more than anything and the way everything is put together. A site can look really flat sometimes if it doesn't have something. I'd say it's more about getting a balance, a little reflection/gloss etc can often enhance a site but if you were doing a site with gloss everywhere I'd say its a little old now.

    Yeh mate, I guess I can agree with that, however the glass effect trend has gone I think..

    Well those were the predictions for 2009... Now the question is whether or not they came true.
    I think that they more or less came true except for the so-called "media blocks"; I can't say I've seen a lot of those around. And I think the modal windows weren't really new in 2009, there were a lot of those in 2008 too.

    It's a shame they didn't post predictions for 2010 :(

    I've seen those quite a bit, especially if it's an explanation of software, google, apple they all use it, we even have a client that uses vids in their emails (20% click thro' rate as opposed to 1% click rate apparently too)
