I Can't Be Silent - Sadie Price-Elliott

'It is spreading ideas that spark movements and change that is impactful
And listening to other views and hearing new outlooks
It is reading papers and history books and using knowledge and education
To address and solve the problems that our country is facing'

 

Sadie Price-Elliott, a 16-year-old rising senior who lives in Newton, N.J., she just won a national award expressing her strong belief in the power of the First Amendment and the right of all Americans to protest.

 

Price-Elliott, who attends Sussex Technical High School in Sparta, created a four-minute film, titled “I Can’t Be Silent”, that was selected as the best of 278 submissions in the National Coalition Against Censorship’s annual contest.

Siri, already bumbling, just got less intelligent on the HomePod

Siri, already bumbling, just got less intelligent on the HomePod | Inspiratie | Scoop.it

Siri’s wobbly arrival leaves the HomePod in unusual territory for Apple customers: owning a new product that isn’t 10 times better than the competition on day one. 


Without the smarts to match its sound quality, it’s harder to stomach the HomePod’s other demands for complete and utter loyalty to Apple. 


You can only command Apple Music by voice, not rivals Spotify or Pandora. You can’t connect it to an Android phone. You can’t even use it as a basic Bluetooth speaker.

Hans van der Meulen's insight:
De HomePod van Apple is een mooie speaker, maar blijkbaar moet je Siri geen vragen stellen... Wat zou Steve Jobs hier van vinden?

Facebook just bought tbh, an app teens are obsessed with that's at the top of the App Store — here's how it works

Facebook just bought tbh, an app teens are obsessed with that's at the top of the App Store — here's how it works | Inspiratie | Scoop.it

The app isn’t a standard messaging app like Yik Yak or Sarahah, though: Instead, users are presented with a series of prompts about their friends like, “Should DJ every party” or “Hotter than the sun” and four options for friends that best fit that description.

 

The name of the app follows a similar trend among teens who use the phrase “tbh” on Instagram to say something nice about their friends. A tbh is used almost like a form of Instagram currency, since you can trade a tbh for a like on one of your photos. Whether or not the app’s name was inspired by that, tbh bears a lot of similarities to the trend.

100 miljoen voor 3 maanden werk, niet gek! Kortom, Facebook neemt de app tbh over...

Why Tim Cook is Steve Ballmer and Why He Still Has His Job at Apple

Why Tim Cook is Steve Ballmer and Why He Still Has His Job at Apple | Inspiratie | Scoop.it

Lessons Learned

 

1. Innovation CEOs are almost always replaced by one of their execution VPs


2. If they have inherited a powerful business model this often results in gains in revenue and profits that can continue for years


3. However, as soon the market, business model, technology shifts, these execution CEOs are ill-equipped to deal with the change - the result is a company obsoleted by more agile innovators and left to live off momentum in its twilight years

5 Charts That Show Pokémon GO's Growth in the US

5 Charts That Show Pokémon GO's Growth in the US | Inspiratie | Scoop.it

As of now, the app is only (officially) available in the US, Australia, and New Zealand but in those countries, it has already caught fire. On July 8th, only 2 days after the app’s release, it was already installed on 5.16% of all Android devices in the US. If that doesn’t seem like much, consider that by Thursday, July 7th, Pokemon GO was already installed on more US Android phones than Tinder.

What could Facebook’s personal assistant ‘M’ mean for marketers? | Inspiratie | Scoop.it

The feature is aimed at making customers’ lives easier, with “M” being able to complete tasks like buy items, deliver gifts and book travel tickets.


Perhaps the most unique aspect is that “M” isn’t supported by artificial intelligence. Facebook is employing real people to help answer people’s requests, with plans to teach the technology how to handle them automatically in future.


While the feature is still in early beta-testing, “M” could represent a huge opportunity for brands who are willing to take a punt.
