So, What to expect in 2014?

It is hard to believe that we are already celebrating Valentine's day in the New Year! Another year has rolled by and we have already crossed 25% of this new year!

IndUS Magazine had another great year in 2013! In 2013 our hits crossed half a million and we are now shy of three-quarter million. In 2013, we have recorded 40% growth, our readership went up by 34% and our vistor's site spread has increased by 102%. What more we can ask? Thank you for your loyal support and thank you for making this eMagazine a successful one! Do share with your network and write to us with your feedback.

So, what to expect in 2014? From a consumer perspective, mobile phone will take a bigger role in your lifestyle. Your mobile phone will become your wallet (I know it is already!). Now, you can start paying through your mobile phone at retail stores, deposit your fund in bank without going to an ATM, use your store coupons from mobile, get a flash sale price notified when you at your favorite store. Big box stores will continue to get smaller and they will be able to match the price of on-line stores going forward. On the other hand, the online stores will compress the delivery time to deliver the product in hours instead of days. (Read our previous edition on Amazon drones).

On the Consumer electronic front - 3D printers, 4K and Wearable devices are in for a major push. Very soon we will see 3D printers in various market segments. You will soon be able to print your own Christmas ornaments in your office room. In addition to TVs, 4K screens are now entering into computer monitors and mobile phones. Brace up yourself, very soon your 1K screens will look outdated. Wearable devices, especially the one which can measure your heartbeat, pulse, blood pressure in addition to pedometer functions are becoming a vogue now. It will not be a surprise if one of this device becomes a norm for everyone.

In this edition, we have tried to cover the happenings in 2013 while setting you up for 2014. As this is a part of the year, where you tend to make new resolution, we have picked inspirational content to strengthen your resolve in this year.
