Much of the news about Apple's recent deal with IBM has been about how many more iPads it will help the company sell to businesses. But the impact of the deal will be more nuanced and will almost certainly help Apple disrupt the healthcare industry.

Great piece by Ryan Faas on the intricacies of the health platform market...
Samsung, Apple, and Google are all announcing mobile health platforms that aggregate a wide range of health and fitness data with the promise of integrating that information into our medical care.

Ryan Faas used the Firefox phone for a week, and was not excited.
Mozilla's Firefox OS offers up a simple, web-focused smartphone that feels very similar to the original iPhone (before the App Store) and webOS. It's a great platform for mobile novices, but feels limited compared to iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry.
