Weekend Reading: iPhone, Smartphone knowledge, Rogers Recruitment & baby “Hashtag”

This week we had some fun with our selection of Weekend Reading topics and decided to focus on some of the lighter stories we got a kick out of, including a baby named after social media, a smartphone quiz, Rogers recruiting, and iPhone 5 accessory gift ideas. Happy weekend everyone!

iPhone 5 holiday gift ideas

With the iPhone 5 only being a few months old, most owners are still fanatical about their new device and wanting every accessory imaginable to complement it! CNET simplified gift giving for all of us shopping for new iPhone owners over the holiday season. From the new lightning adaptor to custom gloves that allow them to use their touch screens in the cold – CNET lists some great ideas sure to be a hit with any iPhone lover.

Are you smarter than your smartphone?

If you weren’t smarter than a fifth grader, you may want to skip this quiz. Info World posted a quiz this week with 20 questions designed to test your mobile knowledge.  For example, do you know which company is credited with inventing the world’s first cellphone? How about what the dessert name of Android 2.0’s software was? If you think you’ve got what it takes to master this quiz, head over to Info World and let us know how you did! Can you beat my 80%?

Meet baby “Hashtag”

In a world where celebrities can name their babies “Apple,” “Jermagesty,” or “Audio Science,” naming one’s own child after a social media term seems normal in comparison! The first case was a man in Egypt who named his son “Facebook,” and this week the world got wind of baby “Hashtag.” Mashable shared the details earlier this week, but for fun you can also check out Cracked for their list of the 20 most bizarre celebrity baby names here. I wonder how long it will be before we hear about baby “Twitter” next!

Career fairs are always a fantastic way to engage with new graduates to find out what they’re looking for in a career.

    No one close to me has an iPhone 5 as of yet.

    Regarding the Info World quiz, I scored a meager 65%. Your 80% is a great score. Suddenly I feel like I have homework to do???
