Trends

I'm an incidental investor, buying sometimes low-end stocks when I naively think they will grow, and loosing my precious time analyzing the charts and data when I could do something much more useful (like sleep). As an amateur, I'm not so interested in complex financial reports and opinions of genious analysts; instead I'll prefer to know what the business is all about and who is running it. I'd like to know things that I usually report to my bosses - for example, contract portfolio and possible invoice dates.

Google has recently introduced new GooglePlus functionality: business pages. I took part in Google's Webinar "Getting Your Business on Google+". The recording of this webinar will be available soon. Meanwhile I'd like to point you two important things I've noted: integration of "+1" button with search results and ability to segment page users in circles. These two functions are very important and might make G+ succeed.

We are witnessing a digital revolution. Books are transforming into e-books, magazines are digitized, your TV set is starting to be just another part of your tablet, and your tablet is just another form of TV. Virtual world is getting more real than ever. It's just a matter of time when you will be able to "like" a TV show you are watching.

Imagine photos that are always sharp. Imagine camera that doesn't need to focus on the target, because images can be re-focused as you are watching them. Now imagine that it's real - and its name is Lytro.

Lytro is an innovative digital camera that captures "light field" instead of traditional pictures. Light field cannot be captured by standard cameras; it requires special type of sensor - "light field sensor".
