Apple’s iPhone 7 Hits Stores Today

Fans lined up last night in get their hands on the newest Apple product this morning, the iPhone 7. But the iPhone 7 Plus and the jet black iPhone 7 are still sold out and will not be available in stores. If that’s not tragic enough, Apple has stated that they will have “limited quantities” of the iPhone in the colors silver, gold, rose gold and black in stores. Therefore, if the lines outside of Apple retailers seem unusually small, it’s because “limited quantities” can only go so far. (Source: Mashable, BuzzFeed)

Just Something to Make Your Day Brighter

Natalie Hampton, an 11th-grader from California, developed the app “Sit With Us.” The aim of the app is to provide students who sit alone a place to sit with others. Hampton created the app because she personally endured the feeling of what it was like to sit alone in a lunchroom. Students who sign up with the app can become ambassadors and “agree to post open lunches, so that anyone who has the app and has nowhere to go can find a table.” Hampton says that since the release of the app, “results have been very, very positive.” We have the book What Happens on Campus Stays on YouTube by keynote speaker Erik Qualman to transform students to digital leaders such as Natalie.
