: Girls In Tech : What I Learned From Finding a New Barber With Instagram After following my barber from place to place around the Phoenix metro area for five years he moved too far away and it started becoming too time consuming of a drive and wait to get a fresh haircut. I’m a big believer in getting a haircut at least once a week or once every other week. It builds confidence and helps you run a business and your life better if you look good and feel good about yourself. I needed to find a new barber. Unlike the last time five years prior, I remembered noticing barbers posting their finished product haircuts on local geotargeted hashtags that I would peruse from time to time. I wanted to see the barbers or hair stylists work before actually booking with a new barber or hair salon. So I opened up Instagram and checked out the hashtag #Scottsdale where I live and work and started scrolling through pictures looking for some of the work of local barbers in my area.

Gartner: Windows Phone to beat iPhone by 2015 (thanks to Nokia) Imagine a world where Windows Phone is more popular than Apple’s iPhone. That may just sound like Steve Ballmer’s fantasy, but a recent Gartner report claims that it may very well happen by 2015, thanks to a boost from Nokia as Microsoft’s mobile partner. The prediction is far from crazy: I’ve argued in the past that Microsoft will doggedly fight to reclaim its mobile relevance, and it could very well achieve that with Nokia being the premiere Windows Phone 7 device maker. The firm assumes that Nokia will begin banking heavily on Windows Phone next year, which will help notch it up to the third most popular smartphone platform in the world by the end of 2013. But I don’t think Apple should be shaking in its boots yet. Gartner makes some massive assumptions to reach its figures — including the fact that Apple will prioritize margins and won’t try to fight for market share with low-cost and mid-range smartphones.
