Tina Brown, Editor-In-Chief of Newsweek announced yesterday that as of 2013, the newsmagazine will be going entirely digital. The Daily Beast reported that nearly 40% of Americans get their news from an online source, according to a recent study. The trend continues as more magazines make the shift toward digital. Do you think print magazines will entirely become a thing of the past?

Grilling is the proud and all American tradition that brings families and friends together in celebration of life, liberty and freedom. These BBQ days are anthropological case studies of Americana, every bit as illuminating as a National Geographic special on animal behavior from some far off Pacific island. 
Observe as the mother of the group pacifies children, breaking up conflicting by assuring both offspring she has no favorites. Catch a quick look at this right of passage as the father hands the young male, fresh off his 21st birthday, his first legal alcoholic beverage. And most importantly see the glory of the group alpha. Positioned strongly, dominant and proud right where he belongs: at the head of the grill!  
Being the BBQ’s man behind the meat is no small privilege or endeavor. Knowing when the coals are at their appropriate temperature, sensing when medium rare has been achieved, and having the know-how to artistically create the perfect rub are skills earned over a lifetime. Luckily for BBQ goers across the world Weber, the grill company as synonymous to cookouts as barbecue sauce has created “Weber’s On the Grill” App for the iPhone, iPad, and android.
The app includes over 300 recipes for meats, rubs, and marinades. Access the helpful how-to videos and share grocery lists and recipes. For the grilling veterans to the young homosapien with alpha aspirations, this app could be the most revolutionary grilling tool since the very first Weber.

Forget the rumors surrounding Apple’s iPhone 5, a Chinese company by the name of GooPhone has created an iPhone 5 clone they are calling the Goophone I5. According to a report by CNET, GooPhone may have taken out a patent on the design of a new smartphone they created. The Company is even going as far as to try and sue Apple over a patent issue involving the company’s upcoming smartphone. Is this what the future holds? The bee logo is kinda cool, but we hold true to our guns. Apple.

The mobile device has transformed from a decade ago with people relying on it to keep them constantly connected, and share most every facet of their life via social media.


Uploading Instagram:
TIME magazine asked its readers from all over this great planet to take photos with their mobile phones and post them to Instagram using the hashtag #TIMEwireless. They received over 31,000 entries from more than 120 countries and the editorial team selected 288 to appear on the cover of the latest issue of TIME. We actually felt obligated to tag TIME on Instagram, but none of Social Irony’s photos made the cut. However we have a few friends that did have their images published and a big congrats to you!

*This entire short was composed and image captured using the iPhone… at a comfortable cruising altitude of 37,000 feet en route to Hong Kong. Follow @socialirony on Instagram and tag your cool tech savvy photos using #socialirony.
