Babies from a entirely different generation...pinch to zoom pictures in a book :)
Bill Gross originally shared:
 
From the "fingers" of babes...

"This past summer, I gathered a group of 20 babies between the ages of 14 and 20 months. I handed each one a BlackBerry. No sooner had the babies grasped the phones than they swiped their little fingers across the screens as if they were iPhones, seemingly expecting the screens to come to life. It appears that a whole new generation is being primed to navigate the world of electronics in a ritualized, Apple-approved way." - Martin Lindstrom in NYT

My young son a few years ago couldn't figure out why the TV wasn't a touchscreen. I've heard of babies taking pictures in a book and trying to pinch and zoom them with their fingers. Have you ever seen this?

Volume of cargo at the Suez Canal to predict economic growth or slump...interesting
Bill Gross originally shared:
 
"Suez Canal" economic indicator points to a slowdown?

Interesting idea: measure the amount of cargo going through the Suez Canal and try to use that as an economic predictor. Do you think this works, or is it just a trailing indicator, not showing any forward causality?

We were mortified to learn that a team of people working on a Google project improperly used Mocality’s data and misrepresented our relationship with Mocality to encourage customers to create new websites. We’ve already unreservedly apologised to Mocality. We’re still investigating exactly how this happened, and as soon as we have all the facts, we’ll be taking the appropriate action with the people involved.
