OUR HIGH-TECH FUTURE: 5 technologies that will shape our tomorrow

Have you ever wondered what kind of technologies will become established in our world in the next 20, 30 or 50 years? Super-thin mobile phones with holographic screens, robot servants, perhaps those flying cars from the Back to the Future films we are still waiting on?. Well I do not keep a crystal ball in my bedroom, but in August 2017, Spanish-language online magazine TecNovedosos played soothsayer and predicted what technologies we might be using and experiencing in our daily lives in the future, perhaps as early as the next decade.

AN INSPIRING THOUGHT: Life goes on…

Life is a journey. It can be a smooth dual carriageway with no traffic, or it can be a decrepid country lane full of potholes. Ultimately it has to move on and you have to be prepared to move on with it. Things can be tough at times, and you may have had a difficult life or have gone through some turbulent events, but there is always the future to look forward to.

VEDIC ASTROLOGY: My Kundali shocked me!!

Astrology is rather like Marmite. You either believe in it fervently, enunciating the characteristics of every star sign from Aquarius to Virgo, or you consider it a load of fairy dust splattered wish-wash that you wouldn’t touch with a barge pole.

CREDIT CARDS: A digitally convergent future?

By Vijay Shah Credit and debit cards have long been a standard form of payment that is quick, durable and usually reliable. They mean wallets or purses which are not chockfull of change, which are less cumbersome to carry around, and give immediate 24 hour access to the contents of your bank account. All that offered with minimal fuss and maximum convenience. They also have limitations though. Most readers will know the feeling of losing their card after a busy night out or misplacing it in a taxi, and the frantic phone calls to the bank to cancel it before … Continue reading CREDIT CARDS: A digitally convergent future?
