Is Apple Stronger without their 3rd most important employee? TWiT.TV

Is Apple Stronger without their 3rd most important employee? TWiT.TV | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

In my 100+ consecutive TWIT podcasts, this is one of my favorites.  They talk about Apple vs Amazon.  Also, Apple fired Scott Forstall who led the earth's move to IOS.  How will this effect the company?

I also enjoyed their talk on wearable gadgets and the shift in tech devices.  We will not longer watch them.   They will watch us.

Thank you for the rescoop. I really like this video. I am lucky to be the first scoop for your site. I have used scoop.it since March of 2011 and I am very happy with it. My best advice to new members is to create a strategic tagging system that is comfortable for you and then tag everything. It makes it easy for you and your followers to find articles later and Scoop.it will reward you with a high score, because they value an organized web. Best of luck to you!

Why Apple's Next iPhone Is As Important As The First One | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Takeaway:

Apple also needs to make the scarrier/ervice companies happy.  At the moment.  At the moment, carriers are happy with iphone because users sign 2 year contracts and download lots of data (profit) for the carriers.

Secret options for iPhone users who know secret tap options | TVLesson | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

More important than the secrets in this video is the trend of 'secret settings" and 'secret' options.  Similar to the old days of secret codes to get to hidden levels on Nintendo games, iPhone developers are creating secret options for people who know the secret tap sequences.  

 

Also, this is a good reminder of two nice resources:

Facebook users average 6 hours of use per month.  Also,  1 out of every 7 mnutes spent on the internet is spent on facebook.

 

Also, interesting talks on cell phone transactions, Apple's integration of Facebook on the iPhone, and corporate social media policies for employees.

Why Apple Won by Betting Against the Web

Why Apple Won by Betting Against the Web | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Roger McNamee says Apple became successful by betting against the Internet.

 

The result of that vote is a move away from the desktop experience of free, undifferentiated content. Mobile users don’t navigate the Internet with Google searches. They use apps, which deliver a better experience. And they spend much more time within those apps than on any web story.
