We all know mobile app stores are booming worldwide, and a new market research report by MarketsandMarkets acknowledges that trend. According to the research firm’s ‘World Mobile Applications Market (2010 – 2015)’ report, the total global mobile applications market is expected to be worth $25 billion by 2015 (up from about $6.8 billion in 2010). MarketsandMarkets projects Apple’s App Store to hold nearly 20.5 percent of that particular cake, while the global market is forecast to record a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 29.6 percent from 2009 to 2014. The research firm reiterates the various factors that will be contributing to that growth, from advancements in network technologies to the lowering of mobile data usage cost, growing adoption of smartphones around the world, and a continuous increase in application usability.
This is how to milk a stealth startup for all it’s worth.
(NaturalNews) Like a medical house of cards in an earthquake, the seasonal flu vaccine mythology is collapsing right before our eyes. After months of urging everyone to get vaccinated (and blaming non-vaccinated people for skipping out on their "public health obligation"), UK health authorities announced last week that "healthy people" were to blame for causing a vaccine shortage that they claim now threatens the lives of sick children ( http://www.naturalnews.com/030977_vaccine_shortage.html ). As part of this ruse, they even suggested that pharmacies should be banned from selling flu vaccines to healthy people, explaining that healthy people didn't really need them anyway . So much for the big flu vaccine delusion that "everybody needs a vaccine."
(NaturalNews) As NaturalNews has covered for years, researchers have found a profound link between breast cancer and low levels of vitamin D ( http://www.naturalnews.com/023264_Vitamin_D_cancer_brst.html ). Women with the lowest blood levels have the highest breast cancer risk and those dying of metastasized disease are the most vitamin D deficient of all. Scientists have theorized vitamin D has anti-cancer properties that influence cell growth, healthy cell differentiation and programmed cell death (apoptosis).
(NaturalNews) Here's an updated timeline of the mysterious animal deaths now happening around the world. Conventional explanations for these deaths now border on the outlandish: A bird die-off event in Romania is now being blamed on "drunkenness," for example. Here's the updated list through January 14, 2011, in reverse date order:
Mannen som skall driva Apples dagliga åtaganden medan Steve Jobs är borta heter Timothy D. Cook. Tim Cook kom till Apple 1998 i samband med att Steve Jobs satte ihop det lag som kom att vända företaget på rekordtid.
Jan. 18, 2011 — Do you want that in a pill or a shot? A pill, thank you, but most patients never have that choice. The problem with administering many medications orally is that a pill often will not dissolve at exactly the right site in the gastrointestinal tract where the medicine can be absorbed into the bloodstream.
Vectrix LLC , a self-proclaimed world leader in personal electric vehicles, has kicked off the New Year with a bang by introducing its urban commuter; the VX-2 battery-powered scooter. The VX-2 is a slimmed down version of the company's VX-1 and is designed for low-speed travel. Whether that includes around town trips or traversing a college campus, troubled Vectrix insists that the VX-2 is the "perfect machine" for the task. The VX-2 can hit speeds of up to 30 miles per hour and has a usable range of 40 to 55 miles (depending on terrain, weight of rider, speed, etc.). The VX-2 features a rudimentary regenerative braking system and low-speed reverse operation.
Toyota Prius C Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery Earlier this month, we reported that China is expected to slash its first batch of rare earth exports by 11 percent for 2011, setting the limit at 14,446 tons. Automakers are concerned that a shortage in vital rare earths used to manufacture components for hybrid and battery-powered vehicles could hamper production levels of electric-drive models. To overcome this potential shortage, Toyota , the world's leading seller of hybrid vehicles, is actively developing an alternative type of electric motor that doesn't rely on rare earth metals.
One of my favorite new iPad apps is the “History of Jazz” app . It’s a bit expensive, at $10, and not everyone will care about the app, but it is one of the examples of where I hope the book industry goes. It’s one of the more popular apps, and has a very high rating on the iTunes store right now.
Harsh winter weather can diminish the range of battery-powered vehicles. Likewise, the performance of a plug-in hybrid like the Chevrolet Volt can suffer as the mercury dips. However, when General Motors ' designed the Volt, the automaker wanted to develop a plug-in that could effectively tackle grueling winter weather without a noticeable degradation in performance. Volvo dealt with this issue by adding a small ethanol heater . Though In the winter, the Volt's battery pack is often tasked with powering a resistive heater to warm the vehicle's cabin and, as Susan Stevenson, GM's benchmarking engineer for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems explains, "It requires as much energy to heat the interior of a car on a cold day as it does to drive at a constant speed." Therefore, GM designed the Volt's HVAC system to minimize battery drain while still allowing it to pump out ample heat to keep occupants comfortable.
How do you sustain the lust factor for the iPad as more and more tablets enter the market? The anticipated iPad 2 will probably deal with some of the first version's shortcomings, such as built-in cameras (one for snapping photos, the other for video chatting), but that will meet expectations, not inspire desire. Instead, tech and Apple sites are a-flutter with rumors that the new iPad will feature supercharged graphics and enhanced resolution.
The iPad 2 will sport powerful, new graphics hardware, along with a higher-resolution display, according to a report.
