Must-Reads: The 6 Longreads You Missed This Week

Must-Reads: The 6 Longreads You Missed This Week | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it
We present to you, in our weekly installation of Mashable Must-Reads, a curated collection of can't-miss stories to read and reflect on.

Ken Morrison's insight:

--Ken's Note--
I feel like Mashable is losing it's focus on average.  Yet I still like their best stuff.  I feel that the fact that they call these fairly short reads 'longreads' is an indicator that they are going for the quick feel-good attention getting hits and likes. With that said, enjoy these insightful articles. I really like the one on Ipads and Google's new device.
