  • It's hard to tell the difference between Categories and Tags on many blogs. The Categories we often use are carry overs from days before tagging. I often look at my categories and think I should do something about them. Stowe's post makes a good case for how we individually can define categories better in relation to our writing.

    6) There is money to be made by developing applications for the iPhone
    7) It is iPhone customers that are generating the majority of online mobile surfing traffic
    8) The iPhone has a large market share
    9) The iPhone was the first mobile phone with a touchscreen
    10) The iPhone is a technologically advanced mobile phone
    …… We can also conclude that the closer a relationship is between an operator and Apple, the larger negative influence it has on the operator’s overall business case from a shareholder's viewpoint
