Here’s What Pro Photographers Love About the New iPhone 7
There’s a lot that’s new in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus that Apple unveiled today – from increased battery life to a new Jet Black color version – but the Cupertino-based company paid particular attention to the phones’ camera systems, re-engineering them from scratch.

Drop your camera- it’s really with the iPhone 7 Plus that Apple is targeting amateur and professional photographers alike, embedding a second 12-megapixel camera with a focal length of 56mm. It offers a 2x optical zoom, a first for the iPhone.

Gamers More Likely To Be Social, Educated Than Non-Gamers

If you had to visualize someone who self-describes as a “gamer,” what would you see? A 13 year old boy who doesn’t have many friends? A college student who prefers playing games on his futon to going to class? An overweight guy in his 40s living in his parents’ basement?  Let’s face it: the stereotypes for gamers aren’t glamorous. However, a new report based on a survey by LifeCourse Associates for the gaming site Twitch has found that gamers have more positive attributes than their non-gamer counterparts.

Gamers are more likely to consider family a top priority than non-gamers (82% vs 68%) as well as placing a high importance on friends (57% vs 35%). Gamers and their parents are also more likely to have been college educated (43% and 52%, respectively) than non-gamers and their parents (36% and 37%, respectively).

When it comes to their occupation, 67% of gamers feel positive about their aspirations, while only 42% of non-gamers feel the same way. Gamers are also more likely to be employed full time than those who don’t partake in games (42% vs 39%). Sixty-one percent of gamers would describe themselves as natural leaders, compared to 35% of non-gamers.

Socially-speaking, gamers are much more likely to value personally making a positive impact on society (76% vs 55%) while preferring to shop at corporations backing social causes (58% vs 36%). Ethical business practices matter to 78% of gamers, compared to 65% of non-gamers.

Coming soon: sponsored locations

Pokemon Go. Genius app with an hidden agenda?

 

The biggest opportunity for brands on Pokemon Go may not exist yet.

Pokemon Go developer Niantic Labs is planning allow businesses to sponsor locations for certain in-game activities. Along with in-app purchases by players in Pokemon Go, “there is a second component to our business model at Niantic, which is this concept of sponsored locations,” Niantic’s CEO John Hanke told the Financial Times.

According to Adweek, sponsored locations are coming to Pokémon Go via Google AdWords. The ads reportedly will only charge businesses when someone playing the game actually visits the physical location.

Some likely businesses for sponsored location ads include supermarkets, big box retailers and stores preparing for back-to-school shopping, with the idea that the game’s cachet will still be strong in the coming months.

Impressive.. A game working as a remote control for our decisions.
