- In marketing, she believes location-based services will continue to grow, as most smart phones become equipped with GPS by the end of 2011. Location-based advertising will provide retailers with the ability to add new location dimensions to the way retailers reach out to customers. An understanding of effective advertising strategies in this area will provide big payouts and tremendous results; however, misuse of this technology could seem like stalking to some customers.
- The evolution of the online textbook will be essential to the world of education. Putting textbooks online will be costly and publishers are likely to pay for the conversion if they maintain exclusive rights to the sale of content. But, with students demanding access to content using e-reader devices, the outcome of this conflict will likely lead to a more rapid migration of students to online and hybrid classrooms. By having texts and courses online, this makes education much more accessible to everyone and also allows the U.S. to remain competitive with other countries in the education race.
