The new iphone comes out this Friday, but Apple has already released the new iOS 6 to anyone with an iPhone 3GS or higher. Normally I wait to upgrade my software until the mad rush has ended but I had some time last night so I went ahead and upgraded my phones software. I used the wireless "upgrade software" feature in "settings for the first time and I must admit it was very smooth, and I had no issues at all. It took a total of 40 minutes.
While the new upgrade has some fancy bells and whistles, it's actually a few of the small tweaks that I am enjoying the most. Here are my 3 favorite things about iOS6

- Louis Sullivan
American architect Louis Sullivan coined the phrase “form follows function” in 1896. Sullivan followed this rule of design when it came to the architecture of multi-story buildings and factories; however, decades later, another architect named Frank Lloyd Wright would revise Sullivan’s law. Wright said, “Form follows function – that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.”
Our beliefs, core values, and mission statements all signify great purpose and dreams in our organizations, but the forms of these dreams often do not meld inside our current presentations.
