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

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