Future Millionaires' Guidebook

Most people believe the only way to acquire a million dollars is by purchasing a winning lottery ticket. The authors of Future Millionaires' Guidebook contend that making smart and deliberate financial decisions can help anyone achieve this goal. Written by the reporters and editors of the award-winning personal finance website Bankrate.com, Future Millionaires' Guidebook is designed to help readers learn about every facet of their financial lives. Chapter topics include organizing your finances, savvy ways to use credit cards, how to boost your credit score, finding college financing, getting rid of debt, setting up bank accounts, buying a car, purchasing a home, shopping for a mortgage, managing risk with insurance, investing like a pro, saving for retirement, figuring your taxes -- and even estate planning. Each chapter is written by a reporter or editor who covers that beat and is deeply familiar with the subject matter. Their hope is to share valuable information that helps their readers make smart decisions and achieve financial success. The book targets young people because they stand to gain the most by learning about money at an early age. As an example, if they begin investing in their 20s instead of waiting until their 30s, they can amass more than twice the amount as the procrastinators by the time they retire - with just a 10-year head start. (We explain the magic of compound interest in the investing chapter.) Though Future Millionaires' Guidebook was written with the young person in mind, anyone can benefit from reading it. Teachers could confidently assign Future Millionaires' Guidebook as a summer reading assignment to their students, knowing that students will attain a wealth of information that will set them on the right track to managing money. Each chapter ends with a fun quiz that helps reinforce the material. The book can also serve as a textbook for personal finance classes. One big obstacle to wealth is the subject matter of finance itself. It's complicated, full of intimidating jargon and a big mystery to many people, young and old alike. Future Millionaires' Guidebook decodes the jargon and explains in easy-to-understand English how to make money work for you so that you can make the most of it. Most personal finance books geared to the youth market - and only a handful exist - are either too bland or too bossy. The approach used in Future Millionaires' Guidebook is different because we think personal finance can be fun. In a light, airy tone designed to engage the reader, Future Millionaires' Guidebook gets across all the important points about how to handle personal finances and why it's important to take it seriously. But we talk to readers as if we were friends sitting next to them at a sushi bar. The authors - Claes Bell, Kay Bell, Christina Couch, Kim Fulscher, Janna Herron, Jay MacDonald, Sheyna Steiner and Barbara Whelehan - are uniquely qualified to write this book. They work together at Bankrate.com, an award-winning financial website known for its excellent editorial content. They each follow their respective beats closely and know them well. Future Millionaires' Guidebook is currently available in e-book format only.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The evolution of computing and communication is on the fast track - its impact on work and life style is immense and carries with it vast social and economical implications for both individuals and enterprises. Advances in wireless and broadband technologies and trends such as pervasive networks, fixed-mobile convergence, seamless communication and sensor networks will have a broader impact and an even more profound influence on the way we live than the personal computer, PDA, cellular phone and Internet had from 1995-2005. ¿Always on¿ and ¿ubiquity¿, the credos of today's ICT market, have already become customer demands. Under constrain to satisfy these demands, generate new service revenues, and retain higher percentages of existing customers worldwide, operating telecommunication companies have to break new ground. Personalization is considered a key differentiator in the increasingly competitive landscape. With the increasing proliferation of service types and features, a personal intelligent user interface will enable higher customer utility and also make new service scenarios possible. The main problem areas discussed in this thesis are technology forecast and usability evaluation of a new technology. Two well known quotations as follows will introduce the problem of technology forecasting. ¿This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.¿ A more contemporary the following statement by William Gates III from 1981: ¿640Kbyte ought to be enough for anybody.¿ These statements might cause amazement, especially considering the fact that both companies are still in business. Admittedly, as the telephone replaced the telegraph, money transfer became the Western Union Telegraph Company's primary line of business. However, this begs the question how such companies were even capable of surviving such major misjudgements regarding their strategic technology alignment. Generally speaking, the only possible strategies were changing the focus of their business (as was the case with Western Union), simply ¿getting lucky¿ or, alternatively, having enough money to assimilate the missing technology through purchases. But it can¿t be the goal of a global player to miss or loose millions and, in the case of a small firm, to go out of business simply because the chief executive or the person in charge misdiagnosed strategic technology management, especially because it is avoidable. In order to survive in today¿s highly competitive environment as a companies a consolidate knowledge about the methodologies and possibilities has become indispensable. Therefore, in the first part of this thesis, the reader will be provided with a kind of ¿basic toolkit¿ regarding technology forecasts, the application of which will be shown on the basis of the PIUI research in course of this dissertation. Similar questions were posed by Dr. Stuckenschneider, head of strategic marketing within Siemens corporate technology. During an information luncheon in Lucerne in 2005, he confronted his audience consisting of managers with the following crucial questions: ¿1. What are attractive new technologies for the enterprise? The shortcomings of a determined attempt to successfully integrate desktop UI technology like WIMP (Windows, Icons, Mouse, Pull-Down Menu) into next generation communication devices (like smart phones, PDAs, etc.) are conspicuous. As Professor John Canny from the UC Berkeley puts it: If you've tried interacting with a non-trivial smart-phone application, you'll know what an ordeal it can be. There has been a brave effort to evolve it from its WIMP interface roots, but it just feels wrong - like a shark in a shopping mall. Furthermore, a whole range of highly sophisticated gadgets whose purpose is to make our lives more convenient and enjoyable has invaded our living rooms in recent years. One example would be a state-of-the-art HD-TV set. It has internet connectivity, a hard drive capable of storing seemingly endless hours of TV programming, and all the necessary hardware to connect to any conceivable media device. It does not yet include the software, but it is only a matter of time before this will
