Episode 18: Trends for the weeks of July 7-20 Rumors about Tablets, iPhone 6, & Wearables, and Continued Developments with Net Neutrality
July 24, 2014 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of July 7-20, 2014. We discuss two trends we observed as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). The first trend (a relatively anemic one) were rumors about tablets, the iPhone 6, and wearable devices. We flipped several articles about different devices that are rumored to be entering the market and others that were no longer going to be available. The second trend was the continuing developments with net neutrality in the United States. Tech giants Google, Facebook, Netflix, Amazon, and others push to maintain equal access to the Internet for all users.
We have three recommended readings for the week.
