Laptops or Desktops?

This time I would like to discuss whether laptops or desktops will become more popular as years go by. What will happen in, let us say, 20 or 30 years? Overall, the speed and performance of computers in general is improving a lot each year. The main thing that puts apart laptops from desktops is that they take a lot less space. Since the technology is improving, it is possible to fit better and better components into laptops. Perhaps in 20 or 30 years regular desktops will become a lot smaller than they are right now and there will not be as big difference between desktops or laptops as there is right now. What do you think?

Teaching Kids about Money

It is a good idea to teach kids about money from as early in their lives as possible. It is up to you to choose when to start teaching them, but the important thing is to do it at all.

Impact of the London 2012 Olympics on the local environment

Since so many visitors come to take part in the Games every time they take place, it became obvious that the impact on the local environment in London could be considerable.

The London Olympics the greenest Olympics ever

It was stated by the commission set up to monitor the environmental impact of the Games that London 2012 has been the greenest Olympics ever in the history of the Games. While previous Olympics have been criticised for the environmental damage they caused through transport, waste, as well as construction, London performed better than any of its predecessors by ensuring that no permanent damage to the environment had been done. While the city did suffer from the increased number of waste produced during the event, it was nothing that the city officials as well as the many volunteers working on the project couldn’t handle. For example, the Olympic Park in fact benefited the local wildlife by regenerating a derelict area on which it was built.

While the commission said much more could have been done, all of the planning to minimize the environmental impact of the Games has paid off and the London had set high standards for future Olympic host cities to follow.

Working over the Internet

Even a few years ago, nobody dreamed of working from home. This was something that was simply not possible to do. Today, you might hear from more and more people that they make a living on the Internet. I predict that in the future even more people are going to try to make their living on the Internet. Since the popularity of the Net is growing rapidly with each passing day, it is no wonder that so many people these days try to make money without leaving their home. In the future, even more job opportunities are going to appear on the Internet market as even more people all across the world are going to have access to the Internet.

Starting a Business

Some people prefer to be their own boss. They do not fancy the idea of working for somebody else rather than themselves. They do not want to be told when and what to do. Instead, they want to decide what they are going to do in their lives. Running a business is a dream of many people. Being your own boss is also a dream of many people. However, not everybody who starts a business is a successful businessman. Having a business requires initiative, determination, and a lot of patience. If you do not have these traits, do not start your own business. If you think that you have what it takes, then you will need to choose the niche of your business. Here are some things to keep in mind:

-Your business should be in some way related to your interests. You will need to have at least some interest in what your business specializes in order to be successful.

-Having your own business requires a lot of work. If you chose a type of business that you like, then this should not be a problem. However, you will still need to put a lot of work into your business if you want to be competitive.

-Try to choose a niche where there is not a lot of competition. Having too much competition is simply not healthy for business.

Internet Activities


I am a kind of person that likes spending time surfing the Web. Often I find some interesting websites and I have a lot of fun browsing them. There are many fun things a person can do on the Internet and I would like to list just a few of them in this post:

-Visiting social networking sites can be fun. There are millions of people that realize it and there is no reason to at least check out these type of sites.

-Forums that are dedicated to one of your hobbies can be fun to visit. There are forums on virtually any topic and finding like-mined people can give a lot of satisfaction.

-Games that can be played through your browser can be a way to have some fun without spending any money. Some of these games allow you to play against other people like, for example, online chess.

-As a blogger I am going to add that writing posts on your own blog or commenting on other blogs can give satisfaction. Setting up a blog is pretty easy and I am sure that many people would like it, but they simply never thought about it.
