The Scoop – Health Insurance Deadline | Mobile Internet Usage by Age | 3D-Printed Skull March 31, 2014

Filed under: Corporate — CMI/Compas @ 3:56 pm

Today’s the day – the deadline to sign up for health insurance under ACA. Should make tomorrow’s April Fool’s Day all the more interesting.

Who owns a cell phone, who texts, who accesses the web via mobile, who uses social media, and can I see that broken down by age and in a visually pleasing way? Yes indeedy, a new infographic showcases the change in web usage since 2000, and while none of it will surprise you, it’s nice to have in one place.

Several people sent me the news of a 3D-printed skull piece that was implanted into the top of a person’s head. I didn’t click on any of the links and am thus not sharing them with you via Scoop because – full disclosure – I was really scared it would be operating photos and I just don’t have the stomach for that. Brains, ew. So please feel free to hit up Google if you’re interested in the story.

If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em: Apple is working on walking-friendly texting phones. Apple is also – as the strong rumor mill says – working on iWatch, and has a lot to learn from market-builder Pebble, which sits on the wrist of the world’s most forward-thinking visionaries. Make it fun to wear, Apple, give it a long battery life, and also learn from Pebble’s mistakes.
