I have an iPhone, so I upgraded to iOS 7. I personally like it, but for me it slows my phone down a lot. I tried a few of these, and the actually work. It also saves me battery.

NYPD to iPhone owners: Hurry up and download iOS 7

NYPD to iPhone owners: Hurry up and download iOS 7 | Technology | Scoop.it
Police in New York hand out fliers explaining to Apple faithful that iOS 7 brings with it Activation Lock, which makes it harder for a thief to turn off the 'Find My Phone' feature. Read this article by Chris Matyszczyk on CNET News.

Morgan Kroes's insight:

I think that is a good idea that the police are trying to help out, because Find My iPhone is actually a really big help. If someone steals your phone, they can use technology to turn it off. But iOS 7 makes it more difficult to turn that off, so that's very useful.

I'm glad that the IPhone made it harder for criminals to be found. I also think it was good for the NYPD to hand out fliers so that people can understand it better. But at the same time they basically just let all of the criminals of New York know that it is going to be harder for them to turn it off, but it is possible.

Very interesting! Amazing how far this is coming!

Morgan Kroes's insight:

I upgraded to iOS 7 and I like it. It's a lot more modern looking. Everything is fancier, and even though they took a few things away, overall I like it. It originally slowed down my phone a lot, and drained a ton of battery. But I fixed it by switching some settings, and that was my only problem with it. Overall I like iOS 7.

iOS7 is a great improvement. Though I don't have an Iphone the friends of mine that do seem to be very pleased with there new update. Though the updates are looking more and more like Windows7 and Androids, I think it has a very creative and different quality that a lot of people do enjoy.

From #SXSW: Tumblr founder David Karp on encouraging creativity

From #SXSW: Tumblr founder David Karp on encouraging creativity | Technology | Scoop.it

4 ways Tumblr fosters creative communities 

SUMMARY: Tumblr founder David Karp says the social network remains a hub for creative communities because it focuses on four key goals. Speaking at South by Southwest Interactive, Karp cited the need for customizability and flexibility, and the value of setting a particular tone. "Karp's intense focus on the network's community means creatives will likely continue to find Tumblr's pages filled with the latest tools and new, interesting creations," SmartBrief's Stephen Yusko writes.

Morgan Kroes's insight:

Tumblr allows you to freely express yourself in whatever ways you want. Because other people on that sight have the same opinions as you. No one will really judge you on your opinions anyway.

I think that this is agreeable. There are so many ways that you can be creative on the internet. But tumblr is a way that anybody could see your creativity.
Margaret Kooser's curator insight, October 2, 2013 2:03 PM

Being a Tumblr user I can agree with the fact that it is a cite where your page is all about you. The blog I have is a particular tone and its me. It gives me creative idea's and lets me share my thoughts in my own way to the world around me.

Molly Langstraat's comment, October 2, 2013 4:08 PM
I agree with what this article said. Tumblr allows people to be creative and express themselves. It is one website where you don't have to worry about parents and people from school judging you.

Will 9 million iPhones in one weekend silence the doubters?

Will 9 million iPhones in one weekend silence the doubters? | Technology | Scoop.it

The iPhone 5S and 5C have blown the competition out of the water over the first weekend with 9 million in sales, making it the fastest selling smartphone ever. But will it silence the doubters?

Despite these amazing figures, iOS7 has had its problems since launch and several people claim to have bypassed Apple's TouchID fingerprint security.

Morgan Kroes's insight:

I personally think the iPhone 5C is a bad idea. It kind of makes Apple look tacky, and unprofessional with colored phones. That's what cases are for. I didn't like the whole colored iPod thing either. I'm okay with change, but the colored backs I don't really like.

Jerod Garland's comment, October 17, 2013 6:16 PM
Interesting thoughts about "tacky" and "unprofessional." Companies like Apple care a lot about what customers like you think. If enough people share your opinion they will adapt.

I was shocked at the sites that came up. I figured different sites would come up, like Twitter. So I am curious to see how this turns out.

CYDigital's curator insight, September 24, 2013 10:00 PM

As B2B marketers, we can skip numbers 5 and 6. The others are obvious (and I emphasized these factors many times). Here's what's missing:

1) The need for social media analytics with revenue attribution will grow

2) SlideShare will continue to grow in prominence.

Tumblr Beat Pinterest, Twitter, and LinkedIn for SocNet Time Spent in December - Marketing Charts

Tumblr Beat Pinterest, Twitter, and LinkedIn for SocNet Time Spent in December - Marketing Charts | Technology | Scoop.it

Tumblr may not be a popular player on the world stage, but data from a new comScore study shows that it’s heavily used by Americans, relative to other popular sites. Analyzing share of time spent on social networking sites in December 2012, comScore reveals that while Facebook dominated at 83% share, Tumblr occupied the second spot (5.7%), more than Pinterest (1.9%), Twitter (1.7%), and LinkedIn (1.4%) combined, and almost as much as the aggregate of all other social networks (6.1%).

Morgan Kroes's insight:

I did not expect Tumblr would beat the other websites. I use Tumblr like, 80% of my day, but I didn't expect Tumblr to be that popular. I knew a lot of people used it, but I figured it was nowhere near as popular as Twitter or Facebook.

This is one of those head-scratchers where you ask "where did that come from?" Clearly does not differentiate between B2B and B2X, but worthy of taking note.

I am on Tumblr more than any other site. I think its because you can be creative and have your own vibe too it.

Molly Langstraat's comment, October 2, 2013 4:04 PM
This makes sense. A lot of teenagers have tumblr and they use it a lot. It is something that parents don't have and they can express themselves. It was interesting to see that it beat all the other websites, in my opinion i thought that Twitter would be on top.

Better Living Through Mobile: A Patient’s Journey

Better Living Through Mobile: A Patient’s Journey | Technology | Scoop.it

Who does mHealth really benefit?


mHealth, far from being impersonal and over-computerized, actually allows people to take charge of their health care more fully, and in greater detail, than ever before. Even occasional self-monitoring can prevent problems from occurring, and patients can get answers from their physicians at the precise moments when those problems arise.


There will be fewer doctor’s visits, and a lot less hassle. From the doctor’s point of view, mHealth systems reduce paperwork, red tape and the time it takes to gather data, allowing physicians to focus on treating and diagnosis. And medical researchers benefit as well, because they get a wealth of data, assuming patients are willing to share.


Rarely is mobile healthcare as coordinated as Adam’s, but it’s starting to happen, in pieces, all around the world. It’s not a perfect vision — there’ll still be incurable sickness, not to mention misdiagnosis — but every day, mobile technology is improving medical outcomes, and prolonging lives

I think that this is cool. It is a new way to integrate technology into peoples life for a good reason. Using this could help people keep track of their own health issues. I don't think that people should only use this now. I think that people should still go to the doctor reguarly and keep their health up.
