New report predicts huge growth for digital industries
A new report announces that the digital content creation market will rise to nearly $5billion in the next five years.
Jon Peddie Research‘s 2007 Digital Content Creation Report predicts that the 3D modeling and animation, 2D animation, digital video, graphics and imaging, and audio markets will reach a worth of $4.9 billion by 2012, reflecting a compound annual growth rate of 10%.
The report claims the fastest growing segments in the future will be interactive development and video, as the internet offers new distribution networks and new programming approaches to extend the power of individual web sites.
“We are seeing big shifts in the digital content creation market,“ says Kathleen Maher, author of the report. “There have been game-changing moves by Adobe with the acquisition of Macromedia and Serious Magic, Autodesk‘s acquisition of Alias and Colorfront and Google‘s acquisition of Sketchup and YouTube. The landscape is changing right in front of us all.”

I read about like.com recently in a CFO Magazine (truth) and I think it has potential, huge potential…
below are details about what the site offers you…
Like.com is the first true visual search engine, where the contents of photos are used to search and retrieve similar items.
We believe that there are literally millions of items that are difficult to describe via text-based search and where individual tastes are all over the map — think of your favorite pair of earrings or shoes and what an ordeal it can be to find something new but in a similar style.
We created Like.com to solve the challenge of finding “the perfect you” for a broad range of aesthetic and soft goods.
Like.com utilizes our Likeness Technology™ to create a digital signature that describes the photo’s contents and enables a more accurate search for similar looking items and products.
Our initial launch focuses on handbags, jewelry, shoes, and watches – allowing users to search and purchase items from thousands of leading and boutique brands. We will very quickly add clothing and a number of other aesthetically oriented product categories.
Key features of Like.com include:
* Likeness Search™ – the ability to search by image instead of text;
* Like Detail™ – finds items that have a specific feature you like (such as a buckle, straps, bezel, etc);
* Like Color™ – find color variants of the item you desire;
* Like Celebrity™ – find clothing, shoes and accessories similar to those worn by your favorite celebrities;
* Like Upload™ – the ability to upload your own photo of your favorite item and find the same or similar products, coming soon.
* To learn more about Like.com and the great ways to use the product make sure to visit our blog . Happy shopping!
