Snapshot_046

Google will showcase their showrooms in six American cities, in addition to at least two showrooms, previously announced, that are being built on barges.

The city-based showrooms will be so-called pop-up stores, only during the holidays. Named Winter Wonderlabs, they will present Nexus 7 tablets, Chromebook computers and Chromecast dongles for video streaming. Stores will be located in malls in Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Paramus in New Jersey.

After viewing the products, visitors can order them online in the stores or at home. The stores will also feature a large snow globe containing fake falling snow, so that visitors can frolic inside the globes, video/photograph themselves on store equipment, and then receive and share the video/photos. A Web site connected to the Winter Wonderlabs will include a gallery with selected slow-motion videos of visitors in the snow globe.

A study from CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists released Thursday revealed that  the decline in tech-related degrees between 2003 and 2012 was especially drastic in larger metropolitan areas. The greatest decreases were in New York City (52 percent), San Francisco (55 percent), Atlanta (33 percent), Miami (32 percent) and Los Angeles (31 percent).

 Matt Ferguson, chief executive officer of CareerBuilder said”The slowdown in IT degrees over the last decade may have been influenced, in part, by the dot-com bubble collapse and by more recent trends of tech workers being trained by employers or trained through informal programs outside of a traditional academic setting,”  “The deficit in IT degree completions is concerning when you consider that there is already a considerable gap between the demand for and supply of IT labor in the U.S. today. Degrees in health professions, engineering, business, liberal arts and education are growing rapidly and we need IT degrees to keep pace.”

The study revealed that although technology degrees declined over the past decade, health-related degrees — most in nursing and allied health fields — saw a jump of 112 percent. Liberal arts and humanities grew by 47 percent, engineering by 37 percent, management and marketing 33 percent and education by 18 percent.

Elon Musk,  billionaire chairman and chief executive officer of electric-vehicle maker Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA), will release designs next month for a system capable of whisking people from Los Angeles to San Francisco via a tube.

The project, aka can whisk passengers on this high-speed tube transportation system between San Francisco and Los Angeles in minutes and between California and the East Cost in under an hour, Yahoo reported. The “pods” that people might travel on in this system will be around two meters, Musk said on Twitter. The transport won’t happen inside vacuum tunnel Hyperloop, if they share his goal of doing the technology “fast and without wasting money,” according to his Twitter posts today. Musk, 42, is seeking “critical feedback” on the system and will publish his plans by Aug. 12 . Musk has hinted that his design won’t be patented and Hyperloop will be open-source . Musk, a co-founder of PayPal Inc., is the 182nd richest person on the Bloomberg Billionaires list. He is also chairman of SolarCity Corp. (SCTY), the rooftop power producer that’s more than quadrupled in value this year.
