[Guest Post] Future of UK Financial Status

Future of UK Financial Status
The UK is back in the depths of recession.  Recovery failed to gain any pull in 2011. In 2011 the economy grew by 0.9 percent for the complete year. And 2012 saw a bad beginning as the economy fell by 0.4 percent in last quarter of 2011 and then another 0.3 percent in first quarter of 2012.This can clearly indicate that UK is in recession. It’s double-dip recession, where an economy goes back into recession again without having a chance to recover from the previous one.

[Guest Post] What's Ahead for AML Software

What's Ahead for AML Software
In the last few years, the government has continuously increased business requirements under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA). These new requirements mean that businesses and banks have to do their best to stop money laundering. To do this, many businesses are resorting to anti-money laundering (AML) software. If they do not comply with the BSA, businesses will face regulatory fines and enforcement actions. 

[Guest Post] What Will Mainstream Travel Look Like in the Future?

What Will Mainstream Travel Look Like in the Future?
Oh, Hollywood. If it wasn’t for screenwriters and directors with overly active imaginations, would any of us be sitting around even considering the possibility of there one day being flying cars, trains, or buses? Even television shows such as Doctor Who have a lot to answer for in that respect.

One of the biggest problems with looking to the future is that we will, inevitably, be disappointed. When man first landed on the moon in 1969, there was talk that humans would one day live there, and that we would soon be travelling to Mars and colonising other worlds.

[Guest Post] The Future of Graphic Design Tools: Creative Cloud and More

The Future of Graphic Design Tools: Creative Cloud and More
As a graphic designer, I’m always browsing the web for inspiration and informative articles.

I recently stumbled upon an article from eCollegeFinder, a portal for online colleges, that questioned whether digital design skill stems from education or natural talent. In the article, designer Jim Casa says, “In the digital design field, continuing to learn and grow is a must. To remain successful, a designer has to keep up with changing technology, practices, and trends…” While the article seems to lean towards innate talent being the first step toward success, it got me thinking about how important the advancement of training and technology is to a designer.

So what are the hot topics in the future of design?

[Guest Post] Impact of Online Games on the Society in the Future

Impact of Online Games on the Society in the Future
Over the years, online games have shown a tremendous growth in the society. Started off as a simple adventure game in the 1990s, online games are now developed into more high-tech and extremely more exciting forms. More and more people, especially the teenagers are getting hooked-up or have already been hooked up with various online games. The first ever form of online game introduced in the 1990s fell under the category of first-person shooter games which used a variety of LAN protocols. It was then followed by real-time strategy games which allowed multiple players to play over a local network or a modem. Later on, as the World Wide Web developed and internet browsers turned more sophisticated, web browser games were developed by several online games companies. The growth of graphic technologies like Flash and Java has even a paved way for more complex and more exciting online games.
