#MRX Twitter Round-Up – “fav” it, or “like” it?

Twitter dropped a bombshell on Twitter users by changing favs to hearts today, and changed the term from “favorite” to “like:”

Many users reacted…poorly. There was wide criticism that changing the term and the icon has an adverse affect on how Twitter’s community actually use the fav/like feature. Here’s an article from the Verge that details some concerns.

What reaction did you see in your timeline? What are your thoughts?

Taking Our Made to Order Research On the Road

Sunny Yosemite Road in Summer. Yosemite, California USA.

There’s something about a road trip that makes you excited. We’re not talking about a routine trip to somewhere you’ve visited before, but an exciting adventure to somewhere new to you.

watchLAB is embarking on the open road. 

We now offer recruiting services for Portland, Seattle, Denver/Boulder, New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, Austin, Dallas, and Houston. We’ve been recruiting in these markets for years, but as demand continues to grow we’ve planted our flag with a solid recruiting presence in these markets.

What does this look like? The short answer is: however you want it to look. If you need something recruited to a facility,  We’ll arrange and manage that for you, too. Along with all aspects of recruitment and quality control, we can arrange venues, moderators and any other services you need to ensure your project’s success.

People continue to move to smaller cities in droves. And while the established markets of New York, Chicago, L.A., and San Francisco certainly aren’t going anywhere, other urban areas across the country continue to mature. Market and job growth will continue to climb, and the consumers there will continue to develop their own unique set of needs and preferences.

We believe it is invaluable to understand your customers where they are, and where they will be going next. We aren’t staying put. Neither should you.

Join us on the open road. Contact us for your next project.

Apple Announcement Round-Up

apple-invite-sept-9-hero

Apple had their fall press event yesterday, where they announced a number of new or refreshed products.

In the tablet arena, they announced the new iPad Pro, a 12.9″ iPad that is compatible with two new accessories: the Apple Pencil and a new external keyboard.

The new Apple TV boasts upgraded hardware and a new remote that accepts Multi-Touch input and understands complicated voice commands through Siri.

Finally, the newest iPhones. They crammed a ton of features into their newest handsets, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. As with every “s” year, they provided performance increases in camera and overall speed in lieu of a hardware refresh. But the focus this year was on a new feature called “3D touch”— a thankfully-renamed version of the “Force Touch” feature that debuted on the Apple Watch.

You can watch the entire keynote on Apple’s website.

There are some other big keynotes coming up from other companies later in the year, and we’ll recap those as well.

What are your thoughts on Apple’s announcements? Let us know in the comments.
