I would like to learn more about branding and was wondering if you guys have any good books you would suggest?I majored in marketing and have a bachelors degree in international marketing.My program gave me a pretty basic understanding of branding and I would love to learn more.I have been approached by an old classmate that is starting a business focused on helping small business with their marketing and asked me to join his team.He knows that I have always been more interested in the strategic side of marketing and wanted me to be in charge of branding.Since I'm a novice I really want to learn more, but where to start?

p Like many of Apple‘s apps and services, the Notes app can be synced to iCloud to make the information available on a number of devices.When a user chooses to delete a note, they can recover it within 30 days, but after that Apple states the data is wiped.However, security firm ElcomSoft has discovered that it’s able to recover notes well beyond this 30-day window.The company explains in a blog post that it was able to retrieve notes weeks and months beyond the stated limit, in one case going as far back as 2015.In another example, ElcomSoft says that it was able to recover 46 notes from an iPhone that had been deleted over 30 days ago.Users don’t need to panic at this point, however, as ElcomSoft says it used its own custom software to dig up the data, and that it requires a user’s Apple ID credentials.

p – Utvecklingen inom användandet av sociala medier kommer att generera mera data, och fler möjligheter till dialog.I slutänden gör det oss mer effektiva i att analysera och segmentera målgrupper, men också när det gäller att skapa engagerande digitalt innehåll, säger Erik Lindström Futral, head of social business EMEA & MEE på affärssystemföretaget SAP.I jämförelse med traditionell sociala medier-bevakning, som ofta tar avstamp i vad som händer i och kring företagets egna digitala kanaler, är social listening ett bredare koncept.Målet med social listening är att de data och den information man fått fram ska leda till konkreta handlingar för företaget.Exempelvis genom riktade annonser, kampanjer, nya leads eller omformulerat innehåll.Det är ett sätt för marknadsavdelningen att armkroka med säljarna och förena den digitala utvecklingen med konkret affärsnytta.

p Experiential marketing has exploded over the past decade, and it's no concidence that this trend correlates with the rise and dominance of digital marketing.Other marketers are simply looking to maximize the big investments they’re making in experiences, and having a digital component can be something to extend their reach.A social sharing station is another solution, providing a place within your experience to encourage usage of the hashtag, as well as promotion of the brand.These two options are now used frequently enough at many brand activations that we can safely assume they’re planned for by default.This takes handing out swag to a whole new digital level - their attendees walked away with a unique biography in video format that could be utilized on their personal website - or shared via social media.Spredfast Social Suite - SXSW 2017

p Criticism of DeepMind's access to personal health data may inform future legislation about the legality of using that data for research purposes.Google subsidiary DeepMind has accomplished some amazing things over the past couple of years, from beating humans at their own game to saving its parent company money on its electricity bill.Now, however, it’s coming under major scrutiny because of the specifics of a deal with the United Kingdom’s National Health Service.DeepMind forged a deal with the NHS that gave it access to health records from over 1.6 million patients, but the United Kingdom government’s data watchdog, the Information Commissioner’s Office, is investigating the arrangement, according to a report from The Verge.The sticking point seems to be whether DeepMind had the legal right to handle personally identifiable medical records belonging to NHS patients without asking for permission on an individual basis.This kind of access is legal under U.K. law, but only so long as the entity involved is providing direct care to the patients in question.

It’s a story about a government that exploits fear of Islamic terrorists to crush dissent, then blots out women’s reproductive rights.Just a decade earlier, a woman could be denied a credit card without a man to co-sign, and yet, by 1985, when the novel was written, the media was declaring that feminism was over, dunzo, defunct—no longer necessary, now that women wore sneakers to jobs at law firms.On the right, there was the anti-abortion New Christian Right—led by figures like Phyllis Schlafly and the televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker—intent on restoring traditional marriage.Gilead, the new name for the United States, is Biblical fascism sold with faux-feminist icing.Wives, dressed in blue, oversee the home; Marthas, in green, cook and clean; Handmaids, in long red cloaks, with white bonnets that hide their faces, have intercourse once a month, in a ritualized threesome, a state-sanctioned rape.An environmental disaster has caused mass infertility, and Handmaids are the solution—the regime’s goal is to get women not merely to accept their roles but to embrace them.

p Netflix kan därför inte installeras på modifierade eller icke certifierade enheter.I höstas svarade 32 procent på Swedroid att de rootat sin Androidmobil, men sett till alla användare globalt rör det sig om en förhållandevis väldigt liten skara.Märkligt nog går det dock fortfarande att köra appen på rootade enheter utan problem (en APK duger med andra ord).De med rootaccess kan eventuellt dölja root och på så vis lura Play Store, så att Netflix kan installeras direkt från butiken.

p Rima Qureshi, former Head of Ericsson North America and Chief Strategy Officer, has left the company to pursue another unspecified opportunity in the industry.As North America boss part of Qureshi’s responsibilities was overseeing the partnership with Cisco.Despite protestations to the contrary from both companies it has been hard to view that partnership as especially fruitful, so maybe there is a degree of scapegoating behind this move.Qureshi was relieved of CSO role last July, around the time Vestberg was escorted from the building, so there could be a degree of ‘changing of the guard’ to this too.Qureshi had been at Ericsson since 1993 but the company has decided to replace her with another lifer – Niklas Heuveldop – who coincidentally has also been on board for 24 years.He was also the person given the CSO gig after Qureshi was moved to North America and also heads up emerging technology so he’s going to be a busy man.

As it cools, it creates a crystal clear tadpole-like droplet that’s bulletproof on one end, but impossibly fragile on the other.We’ve known about these droplets for 400 years, but scientists have only recently figured out what makes them almost indestructible.In a video posted just a few weeks ago, SmarterEveryDay’s Destin Sandlin fired a .22 Magnum bullet with a full metal jacket at a Prince Rupert’s Drop, so-named after Germany’s Prince Rupert gifted five of the unusual glass objects to England’s King Charles II back in 1661.The baffling results of that experiment, with the bullet disintegrating as it collides with the thicker end of the glass teardrop, are no longer a mystery.Making a Prince Rupert’s Drop is easy, you just need to melt a glass with a high thermal expansion coefficient—glass that expands when heated—like soda-lime or leaded glass, and then drop a molten blob of it into a container of cold water, which immediately cools it down in a process known as quenching.As the drop quickly cools, its outer layer experiences a temperature drop faster than its interior, which results in extreme compressive forces on the outside, but strong tensile (pulling) stresses on the inside.

p Consensus not in the DNA, giant claimsOracle has hit out at IBM and Red Hat Middleware for their continued opposition to its proposed plan to make Java modular.Mark Reinhold, Oracle’s Java Platform chief, has called IBM’s position on the Java 9 Module System (JPMS) "disappointing", "surprising" and a threat to Java.IBM has suggested it will vote against the JPMS JSR that Reinhold leads – JSR 376.The result for the Community vote on JPMS is due to be announced on June 8.A vote against the JSR, Reinhold warned here, would delay completion of the next version of Java and be a “vote against the Java Community Process itself.”
