“From Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP):
CIRP finds that as of the end of the March 2015 quarter, 94 million iPhones were in use
in the US, including 25 million iPhone 6 and 13 million iPhone 6 Plus models.

[Clip]
By analyzing data on iPhone buyers, their new model selection, and their prior phones, and overlaying Apple iPhone sales data adjusted to the US market, CIRP estimates the number and model of iPhones in use each quarter

“There are still 8 million iPhone 4S phones, dating back to 2011, in use,” continued [Joshua] Lowitz [from CIRP]. “While they are ripe for upgrade, many of these consumers have owned their iPhone 4S for only a fraction of its three and a half years on the market. The size of this upgrade cohort, relative to the number of new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units sold, suggests that the coming quarters may prove challenging for Apple in the US.”

CIRP bases its findings on its March 2015 survey of US Apple customers. CIRP samples 500 customers that purchased an Apple product (iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer) in the preceding quarter.

“George Harwood and Evangeline Walker, students at the U.K.’s University of Leicester, estimate that the entire Internet could be fit onto somewhere between 68.1 billion and 136 billion pages of A4 paper, if each web page could be printed onto 15 to 30 paper pages. Their research is published in the student-run Journal of Interdisciplinary Science Topics.”

The Definition Of Hell For Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

The Definition Of Hell For Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

They say that one man’s heaven is another man’s hell and that couldn’t be truer when it comes to the sixteen Myers-Briggs Personality Types. Each one is inspired, enraged and absolutely tortured by something slightly different. Here’s the destiny that would psychologically destroy each Myers-Briggs Personality type.

http://thoughtcatalog.com/heidi-priebe/2015/05/the-definition-of-hell-for-each-myers-briggs-personality-type/

“ESTJ – An incredibly impractical person is put in charge of all of your major life decisions. You have to do whatever they say and are powerless to argue or reason with them.

INFP – Your deepest thoughts and feelings are exposed to a large audience and everyone thinks that you’re pathetic and unoriginal.

INTJ – Every time you open your mouth to say something intelligent, something entirely idiotic comes out instead.

ESFJ – Someone you love is in dire need of practical help and you can’t give it to them. Worse yet, they think you’re refusing to help them out of pettiness and they’re mad at you.

ESFP – You are stuck in a room by yourself for the rest of eternity.

ISTP – The Zombie apocalypse happens but you’re suddenly the world’s weakest fighter and must depend solely on your loved ones to keep you alive.

ENFP – Every minute of the rest of your life has been scheduled for you – and it’s a long series of arbitrary, solitary tasks.

ISFP – You have to listen to rude people criticizing your personal choices, your appearance and your art form all day long. Nobody cares that they’re hurting your feelings.

ENFJ – Your loved ones are in dire need of guidance but every piece of advice you gives them inadvertently makes things worse for them.

ISFJ – Everyone you love is yelling at each other and it’s all your fault.

ISTJ – You are expected to complete a highly esteemed project with absolutely no guidance as to what’s expected of you.

INFJ – You are eternally damned to working for a morally corrupt company that aims to exploit the weak and generally degrade conditions for all of society.

ESTP – You are completely paralyzed, lacking even the ability to speak.

ENTP – Freedom of speech is revoked from the constitution. Voicing your opinion in any way is now illegal.

INTP – You are eternally condemned to researching an extremely vapid topic using wildly inaccurate methods, mostly involving interviewing people who have no idea what they’re talking about.

ENTJ – Somebody is wrong, and they’re directing a large group of people! You can’t do anything about it and will have to obey whatever inefficient policies they decide to implement.”

Thomson Reuters Releases 2015 Academic Reputation Survey Findings

Thomson Reuters Releases 2015 Academic Reputation Survey Findings

“The 2015 report was released earlier today and is titled, Exploring Scholarly Trends and Shifts Impacting the Academic Reputation of the World’s Leading Universities. The full text is linked below.
About the Report (via TR)
This robust analysis of survey results over a five-year period (2010-2014) identifies the key trends and shifts across the global research landscape that influence an institution’s academic standing.
Exploring Scholarly Trends and Shifts Impacting the Academic Reputation of the World’s Leading Universities is fueled by the unique and comprehensive results of Thomson Reuters Academic Reputation Surveys (2010-2014), including the insights of 65,000 academics and is representative of 6,500 universities and 105 areas of study.

Highlights

The study also explores sharp regional differences and global perceptions that do not always align with an institution’s research output or strengths. For example, while responses differ within specific disciplines, participants have generally tended to identify a small number of well-recognized universities as the leaders across six major subject areas, including arts and humanities, medicine and health, life sciences, physical sciences, engineering and technology and social sciences. While the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) was not regarded as highly in medicine and health, as it was within other major disciplines, this area of study was still listed within its subject mix despite the institution not having a school of medicine. This is reflective of the interdisciplinary nature of science.

Some of the study’s key findings include:

Harvard University is the overall global leader-of-the-pack over the five-year period
New York University (NYU) and King’s College London experienced the greatest upswing in academic reputation
Multidisciplinary universities tend to have a stronger general reputation than specialty institutions, but a granular approach to a subject can lead to reputational excellence within that discipline
Regional perspectives often contrast with global perception
With some exceptions, the volume of a university’s research generally correlates with reputation, including papers co-authored with researchers in other regions

The report is organized into the following sections:

Most Improved Universities
Leading Universities By Subject Area
Regional Leaders In Academic Reputation

The report also includes four case studies:
Harvard University: A Detailed Breakdown by Subject Areas Case
Leading Universities in Business Studies
University of Sao Paulo: Regional Versus Global Perception and Research Output Versus Reputation
University of Melbourne: Reputation Versus Publication
