I think we're still a long way away from the death of cabled drivetrains. They're still very practical and work well, and way less expensive. The difference in cost isn't going to change dramatically in the short term.  As for brakes, there are safety issues at play with a true wireless braking system - it's one thing if a radio signal is dropped and you miss a shift, but if a brake signal was dropped at the wrong time - even once - it could have terrible consequences. So even though I alluded to it and think it's being worked on by someone, somewhere, I also don't expect to be writing about it anytime too soon.
