3 Things I Learned Last Week 7.5.15

This week: New app helps employers connect with job seekers; iPad users may get new keyboard experience; why your bubble won’t burst

New App Designed to Ease Job Search
A new job search app called Switch is being dubbed the “Tinder” for jobs. Basically, the way it works is that job seekers swipe on the listed jobs they are interested in, share resumes, and then wait to get matched. Users can connect with and chat with hiring managers. Users also can decide who they share their profile with, or they can remain anonymous. Find out how business owners and HR professionals can use Switch for recruiting.

iPad Pro Users May Get New Keyboard Experience
One of the downsides of using an iPad can be the keyboard experience. Most users either can’t or don’t want to type for long periods using the iPad’s onscreen keyboard. That means that serious keyboarders need to tote around a separate keyboard device. iPad users had been hopeful the upcoming release of the iPad Pro would include a physical keyboard similar to Microsoft’s Surface. The latest rumor is that iPad Pro will incorporate a new touch technology on its current keyboard to simulate a physical keyboard experience. Read more details about the Force Touch pressure-sensitive technology that may be coming to the iPad Pro.

Bubble Wrap Is Bursting Some Bubbles
One of the best things about receiving something in the mail swaddled in Bubble Wrap is popping the bubbles. Well, the final bubble may have been burst with Sealed Air’s introduction of iBubble Wrap, a new version of Bubble Wrap that is lighter and does not pop. What does this mean for your packaging needs?
