|There just might be a stereovision PC in your Christmas stocking this year. Jon Peddie Research (JPR), the industry’s research and consulting firm for graphics and multimedia just completed an in-depth look at the emerging Stereo 3D (S3D) PC market. Titled, “Stereovision in PCs,” The report finds that the S3D market is poised for rapid growth in the immediate future. Close to one million dedicated S3D PCs will ship in 2010. That number will grow to 75 million by 2014 as S3D becomes ubiquitous.|
Table 1: Growth rates from 2010 to 2014
|Although most PCs will be S3D capable due to the GPUs that are in them, not all PCs will be S3D PCs because they need a special monitor, glasses, and appropriate content. However, S3D PCs will be very attractive to several important market segments.
JPR’s report provides forecasts for the unit sales of the seven major applications that will take advantage of S3D on the PC:
1. PC: Games
“Gaming will be the vehicle for kick-starting the S3D PC market,” said Jon Peddie. “The gaming segment has the largest inventory of content and the most vocal enthusiasts who will spread the word and show their friends and families what it looks like and what it can do.”
Pricing and Availability
The JPR S3D PC Market Study is available for $2,995. www.jonpeddie.com Women over 45 take note–in a couple of years, this will be the technology that you will have to stand outside of TARGET for before Christmas! You might as well be informed about it now!

FitnessUwear features Resistance Training!
The Chief Blonde Remarks: I have been wearing Banglz in the car on my recent trip in to North Carolina. So awesome. I can constantly do arm rotations, raises, curls. These banglz are so cute, you’d have to look twice to realize they aren’t just a fun bracelet. More details tomorrow!
National Senior Health and Fitness Day is May 26, 2010. Resistance training could be one of the most important things seniors can include in their daily routines to ensure a healthier, happier life. In addition to preventing osteoporosis, arthritis and other injuries, research shows that consistent resistance training improved memory performance and verbal concept formation among seniors.
In commemoration of this day, FitnessUwear wants to help seniors find an easy way to incorporate low-impact resistance training into their daily lives with no hassle – introducing Banglz , the comfortable, stylish wrist and ankle weight bands you can wear during the day with serious health and fitness benefits.
Banglz are comfy half-pound weighted bands wrapped in different stylish interchangeable sleeves. Just strap them on to match your outfit, and head out the door! By adding regular resistance training to your daily routine – running errands, gardening, walking, doing chores, or chasing the grandkids – you can help create muscle health that supports your overall strength, balance, bones, heart, metabolism, stress levels and more.
In one easy step, seniors can improve cognitive abilities, prevent chronic illnesses and lead an all-around healthier life for themselves and their families. Because women after the age of 50 will lose one pound of muscle a year,
Banglz is the perfect addition to any daily routine to strengthen, burn and energize the body from the inside out.
