Apple granted patent to replace boring broadcast content

Apple granted patent to replace boring broadcast content | Social Media Resources & e-learning | Scoop.it

Let’s say you’re listening to the radio, and it begins playing a song you don’t like. Under a new patent granted to Apple today, your radio could seamlessly switch to a song from your iTunes library for the duration, then switch back to the broadcast when it’s done. And according to the patent reported by Apple Insider, the same technology could apply to a linear TV broadcast, commercials included.

GOOD.is | Infographic: What's a B Corporation? (Raw Image) | Social Media Resources & e-learning | Scoop.it

With the number of companies in the world today, it can be hard to discern which truly embody social and environmental values worth supporting. Thanks to certification efforts like those through B Lab, it's becoming a little easier to measure a company's business practices through a standardized process. Businesses can apply for certification from B Lab to become a Certified B Corporation, which is an accreditation showing that a company voluntarily meets certain standards of transparency, accountability, and performance as part of the B Corps community.

When you download an app from the Android Google Play store, it will prompt you to accept the permissions it requests from your device. Most people do not pay attention and simply download the app. This is a bad idea.

ROI = Return On Infographics

ROI = Return On Infographics | Social Media Resources & e-learning | Scoop.it

Using Bit Rebels Data, Now Sourcing have created this Infographic "ROI = Return On Infographics - Just how successful are Infographics?".

 

Looking at the data, Bit Rebels 500 most recent articles, those with an Infographic and Traditional

 

Posts, it's interesting to see the distribution of shares across the major social networks.

Twitter is obviously the "darling' for posts with an Infographic with StumbleUpon running closely behind.

 

Who would have thought LinkedIn would yield so many shares, almost on a par with Facebook?

 

I'm not sure how Bit Rebels could ascertain whether the pageviews were solely based on the Post with an Infographic, perhaps it had also something to do with title and subject matter.

Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral

Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral | Social Media Resources & e-learning | Scoop.it

I’m currently iterating some work around Web Literacies for the Mozilla Foundation (you can see the latest version of my thinking here). Perhaps the biggest consideration when dealing with so-called ‘New’ Literacies is distinguishing them from one another, so what I want to consider in this post is the relationship between Digital literacies and Web literacies. Aren’t they just synonyms?

The jury’s verdict in the landmark case found Samsung products infringed on a number of Apple design and utility patents, though not for every phone and tablet that Apple had accused. The seven-man, two-woman jury also said that several Samsung phones diluted the value of the “trade dress,” or protected design, of Apple’s iPhone.

Facebook Finally Allowed To Actually Buy Instagram, Deal Now Worth $738 Million

Facebook Finally Allowed To Actually Buy Instagram, Deal Now Worth $738 Million | Social Media Resources & e-learning | Scoop.it

Today the FTC approved Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram, but the deal is worth $738 million instead of the original $1 billion.
The reason for the value decline is because Facebook was paying with $300 million in cash and 22,999,412 in stock. Facebook’s stock value hasn’t performed that well since the social network went awhile ago.
