Death to Keyboards & Monitors: the OmniTouch

Technology drives the economy. OmniTouch is the technology that will not require a keyboard and monitor for a device. Since the touch screen device is all over the place in a short period of time. I believe when OmniTouch is well-developed, and launches in the market, it will be a high popular product. Before Apple announced their new iPhone, one of the rumors is that it will basically have a projection as the keyboard and monitor, but it was a false rumor. The Apple’s fans might hate this, because OmniTouch is projecting by Microsoft. Each of the evolution those technology companies made it to make the device closer to the user. However, OmniTouch is currently not well-develpoed yet. It is projecting to be available as a smaller device in 5 years. I can’t wait to get one once it comes out of market.

Birth Control = Prostate Cancer?

Researchers are saying that when a woman takes a birth control pill, and then passes it, that the estrogen released from the pill circulates through the water system and can cause prostate cancer to men through drinking recycled water. This a bit of an extreme and most likely harmless to most, but it may have an economic effect on birth control. More people will not buy birth control if they hear this or people will stop drinking sink water out of paranoia. Altogether I'm not a fan of taking a pill to stop a feeling, or in this case prevent pregnancy, because all of these artificial medicines usually have more harmful side effects or after effects causing more pain and trouble than the original reason you took the medicine. It is best just to eat right, work out every day, and make smart choices rather than rely on medicine to clean up your stupid mistakes. Overall this article almost just makes you more paranoid than really harming you, but could have negative effects on the sale of water and on birth control.

US finally getting the Nano

In 2008 Indian car company, Tata Motors introduced the world to the Tata Nano. Earlier this year it was finally on sale in India and later in Europe. In the coming months it will be released in the US. The significance of the Tata Nano is that it's the world cheapest car when it was first released it was just over $2000 and is now about $3000. It's about the same size as a smart car and can do about 60 mpg. The Nano would dominate the city car market. When it comes to the US it will open up jobs because of dealerships and I assume people that could never afford cars will purchase the Nano because of its tiny price tag so local business will prosper along with gas stations because more people will need gas.

Taiwanese directors try to make their mark on Chinese box office

Taiwan has many drama shows that are popular, but not many of them made into the Chinese market. Many Taiwanese directors want their shows or movies to be shown in China because China has much larger market than Taiwan. For Asia, there is no such a place as Hollywood where all the entertainment gathers. Those movies from Hollywood make lots of profit from it, but not so much in Asia country. China doesn’t like the films from different country to influence Chinese people. For films which have high box office means that it has a high popularity. High popularity can help the films spread throughout the Asia country. Audiences can also choice to watch the films on internet. There are not many of Asian films and movies make into Hollywood because of the language and culture difference. However, there are many Hollywood movies take place in Asia which help the improvement for the economy.
