Jobs Of The Future

We have witnessed first hand worldwide changes in every aspect
of life, some we welcomed and others we feared.  A new generation
of jobs is one aspect that emerged that some of us shall welcome. 
The automotive section which we see as a casualty in this worldwide
economic downfall, shall pick back up by leaps and bounds.
There will be a greater demand for auto designers and engineers
to produce hybrid and energy saving vehicles.  On this line of thought,
we shall see the "green collar jobs"sector strengthening, due to our
quest for a cleaner environment; getting global warming under
control; renewable energy sources; installing wind turbines and solar
panels and so much more.  The health sector shall also see an
explosion of jobs due to the advance in medical technology as well
as the fact that millions of additional persons will now have access
to health care.  Another reason for this movement in health care
will be the result of proactive medical practices as oppose to the
reactive kind that we were practicing before.  There will be
numerous research programs dealing with genes studies, to prevent
us from getting sick in the first place. The business sector shall also
a great demand for consultants and business development specialists.
As new technology and new business ideas emerge, new firms
shall open doors both at home an aboard, hence asking for experts
in International Finance, Ecommerce, Business Statistics,
Information Resource Management, Financial Support Services,
etc.  The last sector I will mention is the "digital space" section.
As we have seen the computer age is here to stay and will
only get more technical.  It has already transformed our lives
in every aspect and as a results some jobs were lost but more were
created and shall continue to be created, there will be no slowing
down in this sector.  There shall be strong future growth in digital
networks, virtual worlds and robotics.

Bing Search Engine

For those of us who advertise through Google because of its
popularity, well you should also consider Bing search engine as
well.  It is gaining in popularity, even outing out the struggling
Yahoo search engine. The company Yahoo, will actually shut
down its search algorithms sometime next year in favor of using
the algorithms designed by Microsoft that power Bing.  Bing went
live in May and its momentum appears to be building both in terms
of traffic and public acceptance.  According to comScore, Bing
nabbed 10.3% of  the total U.S. search market in November, up
from 8% in May. During that time, Yahoo's search share fell to
17.5% in November from 20.1% in May. Google, of course,
continued to show strong numbers, clocking in a 65.5% share in
November up from 65% in May. Google may dominate the sector,
even if Bing becomes a strong second player in the space, that
could mean a huge revenue boost for Microsoft, which is hoping
that the Windows 7 software package will finally give the company
a long-overdue home run in the desktop operating system market.
Two such wins combined could serve to rejuvenate Microsoft.
So I am just letting you know that Google is not the only search
engine out there, give Bing a try, it is also much cheaper and you
do get results.

Use Caution If Thinking of Buying Bonds

Recently investors and savers have poured money into bonds and
bond funds, with some persons already seeing price appreciation
that is similar to returns seen in equities.  Experts are warning that
sooner or later with the improvements in the economy, hence the
rise in interest rates, the Federal Reserve will start pulling some of
the stimulus out.  As the ecomony bounces back we shall see raised
rates, making bond prices drop, therefore the bond prices that were
discounted will come back to par.  No one is saying not to buy
bonds, since their prices are still rising, but buy bonds for the
income first versus the price appreciation.

Kindle Wireless Reader

Another money maker is the "Kindle Wireless Reader", it reported
to have been November's best selling product.  I am sure it sales
records will more than double for Christmas.  All book lovers
are giving it great reviews, even the "Days Of Our Lives" actress,
Alison Sweeney tweets about how much she loves her Kindle.
The only negative I have heard about the Kindle is that it has
typos but I am sure that any upgrade will rectify that problem.
I guess when you weigh that against the great number of books
one can easily download and stock in that little device, to be
read at a moment notice, it will be well worth it. 
Consumers aren't lacking in choice for the e-reading gadget of their
dreams, and more options should be on the market this time next year:
Plastic Logic's business-minded Que, color e-readers like the Pixel Q1,
a long-rumored Apple (AAPL) Tablet, and new Kindles
(and textbook-oriented Kindle DXs). There is also sony e-reader.

The Kindle, after all, is available now, for those impatient
holiday shoppers and for those selling these products, they will
earn some extra cash to say the least.
