We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of July 27-August 3, 2014. We discuss one trend and two other areas that were not quite trends that we observed as we  flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). The trends we observed was security issues. There were several articles on security issues with various devices–specifically related to the Internet of Things. We flipped several articles about reviews on different hardware devices (e.g. Amazon’s new smartphone), and we flipped a few good resources about instructional design.

We have three recommended readings for the week.
