Strong Investments, Improved Access Fuel Growth in Global Mobile Economy

When it comes to mobile phones, the devices may be getting smaller and thinner, but the industry is only getting bigger, with no perceptible signs of stopping any time soon. According to the Mobile Economy 2014 Report, a surge of capital investment across the globe has helped improve access and fuel increased smartphone penetration on a scale that hardly could have been predicted when the devices were initially introduced. According to the report, growth will continue to be strong around the world, as an increase of 4 million mobile broadband connections is expected to occur between now and the year 2020. Helping to fuel this massive rate of growth is an equally massive funding effort. The Mobile Economy 2014 report indicated that over the past six years, about $1 trillion worth of capital investment has poured into the mobile device industry.

 

During the time that investment money has been entering the market from all corners of the globe, worldwide mobile broadband connections have grown by a factor of 10. In 2008, the report states there were approximately 200 million such connections, while in 2013, there were more than 2 billion mobile broadband connections. To help sustain these connections, much of the capital investment has involved building stronger networks and enhancing infrastructure in areas struggling to keep up with demand.

 

In addition to improving connection strength and infrastructure in areas where mobile phone usage is already heavy, some capital investment has been used to introduce users in new regions to the technology through the expansion of network coverage areas. With improved performance and increased coverage areas driving higher demand, investment is also expected to continue to increase, and the Mobile Economy 2014 report suggests that nearly $2 trillion worth of capital investment will be put forth to help keep pace with the growth of data traffic. Indeed, it is not only the rise of subscribers that is propelling demand, but the increasing accessibility to, and popularity of, data-heavy applications and functions such as streaming music and videos that has generated this significant increase in traffic.

 

While the Mobile Economy report acknowledged the contributions of increased use among existing subscribers to mobile broadband connections, the report also noted that a significant amount of traffic would be due to new subscribers as well. According to the report, as many as 880 million new mobile broadband subscribers are expected to enter the market by 2020.

Helping fuel the popularity and the data traffic increase is the increased accessibility of faster connections, with 3G and 4G connections becoming a larger and larger proportion of overall subscriptions. Perhaps most impressive was the report’s prediction that by 2017, about half of the global population would be covered by an LTE network. As of 2014, only about one-fifth of the population has access to such a network.

For Our Kitchenette Essentials

Three months ago, DH and I decided to venture into opening up a small business. A home based one that is! Since DH’s passion is cooking, we opened up our garage and set up a small eatery. It wasn’t easy at first because we had to deal with those unavoidable glitch that comes along with the business.

We hired one  cook/helper to help out DH in cooking and serving out food for our customers. The marketing and menu planning was done by the husband. I, on the other hand can only help out during weekends as I have an 8 hour day time job to attend from Monday to Friday.

One of the initial things that we took into consideration are the materials and setting up of the kitchen space. We made sure to keep a note of all the materials needed like kitchen tools, utensils and equipment.

kitchen knives

Since an eatery deals most on cooking, food preparation and serving, we invested on quality kitchen knives, scissors, pots and pans, chafing dish, mixing bowls, strainers, cooking spoons, etc.

It is very important to have those quality kitchen essentials for ease and convenience in performing task. In effect, there will a positive output in terms profit for the business and a satisfied tummy filled customer from those delicious menu. 

Party Ideas for Family Events in 2014


imagesPeople usually celebrate special occasions by getting together with friends and loved ones. It can be anything from a simple dinner to a grand party. Regardless of the choice, people would usually want their parties to be fun and memorable. There are party planners and event organizers that can help with planning and hosting the party but it is still up to the host to decide on the party theme. Will it be a black tie event, a casual dinner, or a theme party that requires a visit to MrCostumes? If you can’t make up your mind then here are some party ideas to consider.

1. Period Parties. Take your guests back to a different era with a period party spanning from the 40’s to the 90’s.  Those who are celebrating milestones can reminisce the good ol’ days with friends and loved ones amidst food, decors, music, and outfits of their favorite era. The Great Gatsby, the grunge, and the 80’s are three popular eras that you can groove to.

2. Movie Themed Parties. Kids and movie buffs will enjoy a party that also celebrates the things that they love most. The classic film Star Wars is a favorite theme for sci-fi fans but you can choose any of the latest movies this year to keep your theme up to date. Some  fun movies that come to mind include Transformers 4,  The Amazing Spiderman 2, X-Men Days of Future, Maleficent, and The Hobbit: There and Back Again.  For children’s parties, Frozen and How To Train a Dragon themes are very popular this year.

3. Sports Events. Just like movies, sports are something that people of all ages would love. Baseball, basketball, and football themed parties are great options for sports buffs. Significant sports events for the year are also great ideas for a cool party. 2014 is the year for FIFA World Cup and Sochi Olympic Winter Games so you may want to add football and Olympics in your theme options for the year.

4. Black Tie Events. These are classic parties that are reserved for very special occasions. Proms, Weddings and Golden Anniversaries usually call for such events. The theme and attire may be classic but you may also add something trendy to the occasion in the form of food and music.

5. Family Dinner. Sometimes the most memorable events are those that are simple and laid back. Invite friends over for a simple family style dinner with classic home cooked fares and enjoy bonding with them over a meal.

The most important thing to consider in choosing a theme is the occasion and the person or people that you are honoring. Knowing what would make them happy is one sure shot way to make the guests happy as well.
