Understanding where technology is heading is more than guesswork. Looking at emerging trends and research, one can predict and draw conclusions about how the technological sphere is developing and which technologies should become mainstream in the coming years. Envisioning technology is meant to facilitate these observations by taking a step back and seeing the wider context. By speculating about what lies beyond the horizon we can make better decisions of what we create today.

New console may pave the way for gaming integration By Jaron Serven, Staff Writer Well, it’s here—and no, it’s not called the Xbox 720. Don Mattrick, Microsoft president of interactive entertainment business, unveiled the next generation Xbox One during a much-hyped Tuesday morning press conference. The original Xbox was released in November 2001—launching with a controller so big, one could fight a zombie apocalypse with it—and quickly gained popularity, due in part to the marquee launch title Halo.

Author of “Life of Pi”, Yann Martel, says the key to writing well is simply…wait for it…to read. Most people have a problem letting go; but take a break, then return–there’s no strict formula to writing. It’s all cerebral and mental, it can drive you nuts if you continue to plug away. He says, the best teacher is a cheap, little Penguin classic. Read beyond what you want to write about, all topics should be covered. Writing is the greatest [...]
Okay, a tip jar is optional. But at a sit-down restaurant, the server deserves at least 15%, with an additional 5% (each, don’t skimp) for good service and feeling nice. Leaving at least $2 per person is necessary if the food was cheap. Think about it: they make you happy, you make them happy. As a former server, I can justify that about 60%-70% of your living expenses come from tips. It’s just the right thing to do! It encourages [...]
Neuropsychologist Dr. Sam Goldstein sees roughly 300 children per year. Each parent wants him to be an odds maker, to change the future for the better of their children. Goldstein once asked a patient, “What would it take to have a good day?” and the child responded, “When bad things don’t happen.” These bad things could range from problems with parents, challenges or adversities on the playground; his view was avoiding mistakes is the best way to not be judged.
