'A Better Amercia' and the importance of a good copy edit

with mittMitt Romney probably didn't intend for his new campaign iPhone app "With Mitt" to go viral. Thanks to a typo, it just might.

The app lets you snap a photo with your phone, choose from a collection of promotional campaign messages to add on top of your image, and then share it with your friends on social media (check out mine to the right). It's a pretty innovative idea as far as digital campaigning goes. That is, unless your developers forget to give it a copy edit! (I'll admit, at first glance, "Amercia" does look a lot like "America.")

As someone who's submitted an iPhone app to Apple before, let me remind you that it usually takes Apple about a week or two to approve an upgrade to your app. That includes code updates to make a copy edit. I wonder if they'll make an exception this time for the sake of "A Better Amercia."


EDITOR'S NOTE: This news brief has been copy edited to correct grammatical errors. Oh the irony.

Google Chrome is world's most popular browser, but not at Marketplace.org

There's a new victor in the so-called browser wars. Google Chrome has knocked Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser out of the top spot becoming the most-used browser in the world, according to the analytics website Statcounter.com. While IE still rules in the U.S., Chrome has experienced somewhat of a global takeover, edging into the number two spot ahead of Mozilla's Firefox last year and more recently bumping IE from its perch.

I thought I'd bring it up, because this global trend doesn't match the audience stats here at Marketplace.org. The majority of visitors to our site still read and listen to our stories with some version of Internet Explorer, according our Google Analytics stats (see attached image for details).
