Apple iPhone 5—What You Don’t See Matters
by Richard Oppenheim
Apple's iPhone 5 announcement arrived with a few bruises. The first iPhone was introduced to the world in January 2007 (first sold in June 2007) and changed everything about mobile communications. While this No. 5 iPhone has some sizzle, it enters into a crowd of alternative smartphones in 2012. All credit is due to Apple for what the iPhone has delivered for 5 years. An entire industry has developed with many hardware copies from Google, Samsung, Nokia, HTC, and Microsoft. The major new feature is the upgrade to iOS6 for all iPhones 3 and above. The fireworks dimmed a bit when customers discovered that the decision to replace the valuable Google Map crashed because the new Apple Maps App does not work. This huge fumble will cut into Apple's invincibility as the innovation leader.

Pew Research Center Provides Research and Data on Campaign 2012
by Paula J. Hane
As Barack Obama and Mitt Romney prepared for their first debate on Oct. 3, 2012, the issues at the top of the voters' agenda have changed little since 2008, according to a recent survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. Conducted Sept. 12-16 among 3,019 adults, including 2,424 registered voters, the results show that 87% of registered voters say that the economy will be very important to their vote, while 83% say jobs will be very important to their vote.

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
