instagram storiesInstagram lovers, listen up!

 

Whether you’re on the quest to become an Instagram star, or simply want to take your profile up a notch, the best strategy on how to stand out on this popular social media platform is shifting. 

 

While posting to your feed regularly, using hashtags, and responding to comments used to be a great strategy to build a solid following, the current trend is all about using Instagram Stories.

“You Had Us At Hello;” Apple iPhone Turns 10

In June 2007 Apple released the very first iPhone – an iPod, phone and Internet connection all in one, operated via touchscreen and as futuristic-looking as a sci-fi gizmo. The earliest iPhone didn’t have all the features or apps it has today, but it was revolutionary nonetheless. David Pogue, of Yahoo Tech, who was one of the very first journalists to play with the iPhone before its release, reports on the history of the personal device that changed the world.


As Apple celebrates the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, a device all but culturally synonymous with the word smartphone, we are a byproduct. With 3 1/2 trillion still-analog photos to be digitized, the billion plus smartphones are missing something. Pictures. Decades past memories which need to be scanned, and that’s partly how ScanMyPhotos.com has achieved this new milestone, as we scanned our 400 millionth pictures. Most are then uploaded to share on iPhones and all photo sharing devices.  .



CBS Sunday Morning celebrates the Apple iPhone as it turns 10 years old. Happy Anniversary, iPhone!
