The iPad 2 has barely hit stores, but already Stuart Hughes has created a super-luxurious version of the .footer a:hover {text-decoration:underline; color:#333} gadget, one that is made up of solid 24-carat gold, flawless diamonds, and the bones of a 65 million-year-old T-Rex. This iPad is priced at £5 million.

Since the late 80s, technology has infiltrated all of @media only screen and (max-width:480px) { our lives.

Our Trendspotters first detected this trend on the catwalks in Europe late last year, where designers represented their 2011 lines by sending stunningly simple clothes down the .privacy{text-align: right;padding-bottom: 10px; width: 100%;} runway. This clean, easy look was complemented by minimal makeup and .main-container{width: 960px; margin: 0 auto;padding-top: 1px;padding-bottom: 1px;} simple hairstyles. The concept of ‘pared-down chic’ has also extended to interior design.

    For the past few weeks, the political uprising in Egypt has been splashed over television screens and .popular-searches ul.first li:hover a{color: #ffffff;text-decoration: none;} newspapers, thereby highlighting a new trend in politics: democracy.

    The ‘government of a{word-wrap: break-word;} the people’ in most cases comes about because of successful people’s movements and .border-wrap{padding: 10px;border:1px dashed #636363;margin-bottom: 100px} protests. The trend towards democracy has been in motion for the past few years, there have been elected democratic governments in Latin America (Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador) as well as in several former Soviet Union countries. While the shift to

      democracy occurred over several years, for countries that have lived oppressively for as long as they can remember, it is a well-deserved achievement. Of course, the trend towards democracy can be observed through the .website .domain{font-size: 23px;padding-top: 19px} current movements happening in the world. Egypt’s radical shift to democracy changed the .footer-related li{padding-right: 15px} political system to such an extent that it has been called the “January 25 revolution.” It has also brought awareness to
    the democratic cause in other African, Asian and Middle Eastern countries. The Egyptian revolution has encouraged Tunisia, Algeria, and China to
    boost their democratic movements. The Global Times confirmed the trend, saying, “the worldwide shift towards democracy is unstoppable.”

    When most people think of their ideal holiday, they visualise sandy-white beaches, palm trees, amazing food, and total relaxation. However, many are now shunning traditional holidays in favour for the latest trend in vacationing: ‘deprivation holidays.’ For those who are unfamiliar with this trend, ‘deprivation holidays’ are boot camp-style getaways. They are designed to improve travellers’ lifestyle choices, health, and fitness. They involve extreme sport and input:-webkit-autofill { exercise, detoxing, body image counselling, and nutrition advice. For most people, ‘deprivation holidays’ will yield quick and -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 0 1000px #3A3A3A inset !important; visible results, such as weight loss, toning, inner calm, and a much-needed lifestyle check.

    Some locations adopt a more mind-body-soul method involving spas, saunas, meditation and yoga. While this may seem like the @media only screen and (max-width:776px) { less strenuous option, guests are still expected to detox and .website{float: left;max-width: 50%;} push themselves physically, spiritually, and mentally. The World Travel Market’s 2011 annual trend report confirmed that “luxury is out, austerity is in,” and that these types of holidays are taking off in North America, Australia and New Zealand.

     

    01-03-2011 Hotel Trend: iPads in Top Hotels

    Upmarket hotels are always looking for ways to maintain their five-star rating, and many are becoming increasingly tech-savvy by providing iPads for their guests. In fact, the iPad is set to be a feature of all top hotels in 2011.
