Kate Williams's curator insight, October 28, 2013 7:01 AM

November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

Maria Eva Blaiotta's curator insight, March 24, 2014 10:24 PM

Free tools which will help you create your own images with quotes.

by Med Kharbach

 

"Icebreakers are " discussion questions or activities used to help participants relax and ease into a group meeting or learning situation" (Dover, 2004). Icebreakers are very important in the learning-teaching process that takes place within the classroom. They can help in creating and maintaining a healthy and successful learning environment for students and are also the best warm-ups to get students engaged in a learning task."

Map iPhone Users In a City, And You Know Where The Rich Live | Various Education | Scoop.it

"Our stuff often says a lot about us, whether we own a hybrid car or a station wagon, a MacBook Pro or an ancient desktop.  Among other things, cell phone brands say something about socio-economics – it takes a lot of money to buy a new iPhone 5 (and even more money to keep up with the latest models that come out faster than plan upgrades do). Consider, then, this map of Washington, D.C., which uses geolocated tweets, and the cell phone metadata attached to them, to illustrate who in town is using iPhones (red dots) and who's using Androids (green dots)."

Inside iOS 7: Apple's partnership with Yahoo deepens

Inside iOS 7: Apple's partnership with Yahoo deepens | Various Education | Scoop.it

The relationship between Apple and Yahoo has seemingly expanded in the development of iOS 7, strengthening the bond that has existed between the two companies since the launch of the first iPhone in 2007.

I wish Apple and Google would play nice.

Scott Gipson's curator insight, December 1, 2013 5:48 PM

        As stated in Chapter 9 of our case studies textbook, “business-to-business relations are the management of relationships with businesses that have resources that your business needs to achieve its goals” (Guth & Marsh pg.191). When the first iPhone launched in 2007, Apple partnered with two companies to deliver content to users: Google and Yahoo. Fast-forward to 2013, Google is now a chief competitor to Apple and has virtually disappeared from the built-in iPhone software. However, this article examines the growing partnership between Apple and Yahoo.
            Reports first surfaced in April indicating that Apple and Yahoo were in talks to deepen integration of Yahoo's services into Apple's iOS platform. With the reveal of iOS 7 in September, those rumors were confirmed with two key changes to Apple's mobile operating system: a new Weather application and built-in support for Yahoo's Flickr photography service. The new Weather application and Flickr integration verify that Apple and Yahoo plan to collaborate on iOS software and services to an even greater degree than before.
         Yahoo had a hand in developing and designing the native Weather application in iOS 7, and is supplying more than just weather data to Apple. In addition, Yahoo data, such as sports stats, help power Apple's voice-activated "assistant" Siri. Also, when viewing a picture in the Photos app in iOS 7, users can now select the share button and choose Flickr to upload their photos. Yahoo Weather was recently recognized by Apple at the company's annual design awards handed out at the 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference.                    

         Some could agrue Yahoo is a perfect partner for Apple. Unlike Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Facebook, Yahoo doesn’t compete or overlap with Apple in numerous areas other companies do. Yahoo doesn’t build hardware or operating systems, nor does it operate a mobile-app store. The growing partnership between Apple and Yahoo represents a push by Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer to increase the company's presence on mobile devices. A deeper partnership with Apple, which analysts estimate will sell more than 200 million iPhones and iPads this year, could potentially reverse Web traffic declines that Yahoo has seen on some of its sites and help transform the company into a bigger mobile-software player. “It ultimately means that there is really an opportunity for strong partnerships and that's what we'll be focused on," said Mayer at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
            Clearly, Apple and Yahoo are reaping the benefits from their business-to-business relationship. Each company has something the other company needs in order to achieve their goals and satisfy customers at the same time. The two companies seem to be managing their relationship effectively.
