Steve Jobs Resigns As The CEO of Apple!

 

Two-time CEO as well as the co-founder Apple Corporation, Steve Jobs has offered his resignation to the company’s board of directors.

He has been suffering from poor health for quite some time. Back in January 2011, he took a medical leave from the company. He came back to the public spotlight in the month of March on the Launch of iPad 2.

He believes he is not enjoying a good health and as a result he will not be able to perform the duties of Apple’s CEO; however, he has recommended the name of Tim Cook as Apple’s new CEO.

He further stated that Apple’s most innovative and brightest days are ahead of it and he would be looking forward to contributing and watching the success in a totally new role. He truly was being thankful to all his associates and friends at Apple Corporation.

Cutting long story short, the guy isn’t doing well and certainly is not coming back to the company which has made this a sad day for the company as well as its fans all around the globe.

A Survey Report About Cell phones [INFOGRAPHIC]

It is now no big secret how much people are associated to their cell phones, lately TeleNay came up with a survey report that shows merely how willing the Americans are when it comes to give up the advanced things in life so they can still easily hang onto the handset they possess.

Hypothetically, what would any one of use would be more eager to let go so you could still keep your cell phone with you?

Infographic is not only going to provide you a closer look into the cell phone love but also it would be helpful in sorting some of the vital and imperative priorities as well. For example, more than 70% of the US population is willing to let go alcohol for their cell phones. Isn’t that strange? It has been indicated in the report that 26% of the cell phone users pull out their smart phones on a frequent basis while they are at the dinner table.

Smart phones have become something truly essential in everyone’s life with in the past decade particularly but giving up your activities for it, I don’t think it’s much appreciable.

Social Media As Addictive As Smoking!!

A large number of studies being done until now have concluded that Google, Twitter, Facebook, and some of the other social networking portals are as addictive as drugs. While people were not provided with an access to any of the electronic mediums or even the Internet, they reacted just as twitchy addicts who have denied to take their drugs while they are forced to give up access to them.facebook addiction

Furthermore, just as a Boozer who completely inclines on bourbon as a social media lubricant, these online addicts truly believe that people who are not hooked on the information expressway, instant messaging and text messaging tend to be big time bores; this fact has been lately reported by the New York Post.

The research firm Intersperience concluded at the end of the study which was useful in depriving the behaviors of people and their online habits that some people truly considered giving up the Web based technology as hard as quitting the habit drinking or smoking.

The study states that approximately 53% out of 1000 people who were being surveys reported feeling ‘upset’ while there were deprived of their Internet connectivity. Moreover, it was also indicated that more than 40% people consider themselves lonely when they are just not able to access these portals.

 Making use of social media portals is certainly helpful but getting it over you definitely isn’t the idea. These portals although have been truly useful for a large number of people all around the globe but still they are making people get addicted to themselves and as a result their productivity and efficacy is being affected to a great extent.
