iPhone 7 Impressions – Marques Brownlee

Alright, if you’re a regular reader, my guess is you know all about the latest iPhone 7 Apple introduced yesterday. That’s not the point of this post. Rather I want to introduce you to self-made tech reporter Marques Brownlee. I love this kid’s hustle.

As you can tell from the video included with this post, Marques is talented. He’s got the gear for shooting great footage, and he knows how to edit. He has used his YouTube channel to garner over 3.6 million followers. That among other things got him press access to yesterday’s Apple event. If you want to check out more of his stuff, check out his YouTube channel or follow him on Twitter.

The Secret of Steve – Kevin Ashton on Medium

“For several years I was a member of the research advisory board of a company that made cell phones. Every year it gave me its latest phone. I found each one harder to use than the last, as did other board members. It was no secret Apple might make a phone: The risk was always dismissed, since Apple had never made a phone. A few months after Apple’s phone became available, the board met and I asked what the company thought of it. The Chief Engineer said, ‘It has a really bad microphone.’” via The Secret of Steve | Kevin Ashton | Medium
