Three million third-generation iPads sold in the first three days since its debut. One of the biggest improvements over iPad 2 is the new high-resolution Retina display. The 9.7 inch screen’s pixel resolution is 2048×1536 at 264 pixels per inch (ppi). Apple claims 44% greater color saturation, and four times the number of pixels in iPad 2.
The ultra high-resolution Retina display improves the sharpness and color saturation and accuracy of text, graphics, and photographs, making the visual experience and overall interaction with the tablet more enjoyable.

Have you ever experienced the joy of discovering a few forgotten dollars in your pocket? That’s the feeling you’ll get when you add a Soonr Connection. As a Soonr user you know you have Team Members, because they work directly for your company as part of your internal Team. But did you know about Connections? A Connection is a person you work with on a Project who is external to your company like clients, partners or suppliers. They work with your internal Team so they also need to have access to relevant Projects.
Business outsourcing is a growing trend. As TechCrunch‘s Nick Cronin notes in his Labor Efficiency article, “Over the past couple of years, there has been a huge increase in the number of workers who operate as some sort of independent, free-agent contractor or consultant. Though the numbers vary greatly, the consensus seems to be around 20 percent of the U.S. workforce, and growing (with some estimates up to 50 percent by 2020). Think about that, one in every five workers are currently unattached to any one company!”
With contractor and consultant numbers continually rising, chances are you’ll be working with even more Connections. The best part about Connections is they’re already part of your Soonr subscription!
