It has been exactly one year since the passing of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs from pancreatic cancer. The late Apple trailblazer certainly possessed “magical thinking” in his ascension to business brilliance; now if only cancer researchers can implement the same strategy to help find a cure for this deadly disease that impacts millions across the globe.
Apple has donated tens of millions of dollars toward cancer research and will continue to assist in the race for a cure. LBi, a global marketing and technology agency out of New York, and Social Irony, a Jakarta-based digital media firm, both support the Steve Jobs memorial iPhone app to help raise funds for pancreatic cancer. “The app - entitled ‘In Steve’s Honor’ – allows users to download a specially designed commemorative ribbon to their iPhone as reusable wallpaper so they can simultaneously pay tribute to Steve Jobs and raise money for research into the disease.” Steve Jobs legacy lives on as a fight for a cure continues.

So what’s next for the most decorated Olympian of all-time? Will he set his sights on a career as a singer, perhaps bring his swag to the fashion runway, what about acting? Well, none of the above. Michael Phelps will take his gold-medal stroke to a different track following his Olympic career: with goals play the world’s greatest golf courses and improve his swing under the watchful eye of Hank Haney. Will he take golf serious enough to earn his tour card? After all he is a world-class athlete, and who doesn’t love spending more time on the greens. The Team USA superstar has four more years to tune-up his game so he can compete in the 2016 Olympic games (in golf) … and take home even more gold. Mr. Phelps, may your balls stay on the straight and narrow.

Rumors indicate that besidse the successful “LIKE” button, Facebook is about to introduce a new button, the “WANT.” It is obvious Facebook’s button has totally changed online interactions all over the world. The new “WANT” button is being based on a similar concept, however it is designed for companies with products or services… especially online stores. You can insert the “WANT” button beside items, ie. sports cars, vacations, fashion items, and yes even your fav supermodel - if that’s your social style. We think the Zuckerberg juggernaut should come out with a “NEED” button next.
