Apple has repeatedly shunned the status quo and routinely defied the odds of success throughout its nearly 30-year history. If there’s one thing Apple proves time and again it’s that it doesn’t have to — nor does it want to — follow the unwritten rules of business, technology or marketing.

The video circulated swiftly on social media. Both Facebook and Twitter autoplay videos.
That means many users were unexpectedly viewing a video of the murders right in their newsfeeds.
Twitter said it removed Williams’ profile page in eight minutes. Facebook said it did so as soon as it was flagged.
For Twitter, autoplay is new. It announced the feature in June as a way for users to “keep up with the action.”

Digital Futurist Brian Solis reveals how brands can navigate the consumer experience economy
In 2013, Internet of Things expert and noted author, Brian Solis, released his book, What’s the Future of Business? In it, Solis wrote that the future of business comes down to relevance and the ability to understand how technology affects consumers’ decision-making processes. In my 2013 PSFK interview, Solis shared that consumers not only expect great brand experiences, but that they also believe they’re entitled to them. Experiences are now directly tied to aspiration and intention, and creativity and technology are merely the enablers.
Le numérique bouleverse le parcours du consommateur. Les entreprises doivent adapter l’expérience client afin que chaque interaction soit la plus efficace possible. Brian Solis, gourou de l’engagement client, livre la checklist des bonnes pratiques à appliquer.

Despite the huge outcry over anonymous comments on websites like Reddit and Yik Yak, Whisper has found a way to make anonymity work.
Instead of name calling, bullying, harassment, racist taunts and homophobic slander that has characterized some online comments without names attached, Whisper’s brand is a nice anonymity.

Many entrepreneurs think that adapting to the new technologies, like smart phones and Internet commerce, are the key to attracting new customers. In fact, businesses need to adapt just as completely to the changes in the buying and social behavior of consumers. High-technology product startups, without customers, don’t make a business.

User Experience as Competitive Advantage
Though it’s taken quite a bit longer than many frustrated UX designers thought it would, the business world is finally waking up to a fundamental fact: when it comes to B2B or B2C Web site design and development, a great user experience is not—and has never been—optional or merely nice to have. Rather, it is essential to a successful customer journey and as vital to organizational success and growth as product strategy. As consumer-behavior consultant and author Brian Solis has rightly noted: “UX packages efficiency and enchantment to deliver more meaningful, engaging, and rewarding consumer journeys.”

When Marissa Mayer became CEO of Yahoo three years ago, the former Google executive staked her reputation on one thing: bringing Yahoo, an ailing pioneer of the early Internet, into the smartphone age.
To that end, Mayer made one of her biggest moves just over a week ago, unveiling a mobile app called Livetext, a video-chatting service aimed at teens. It’s only the second brand-new mobile app the company has introduced during her tenure.
