The Maker of Tumblr

 The Man Behind Tumblr

 

The 25-year-old David Karp is a high school drop out who until Tumblr came along was just lingering New York City.

His inspirations are Steve Jobs and Willy Wonka. His goal is to make Tumblr as simple and healthy as possible. By healthy, meaning without hate or garbage created by comment sections and even “follower” counts that determine how popular you are, Karp says these things ruin the experience and are just down right disgusting. Tumblr’s simplicity is the reason why everyone loves it. Instead of getting excited for new features on Tumblr, Tumblr investor Bijan Sabet says that Karp does the opposite. Bijan Sabet says Karp would come up and tell him “Hey, got a new version coming up — and I took four features out!’ ” There is no doubt he is truly creative and one of a kind.

Tumblr resides in New York. Up to 50 million subscribers.

iPad and iPhone: New Rumors

Rumors about budget iPad and iPhone are being circulated. 

Ipad budget

It seems as though Apple might be putting out smaller iPads. These iPad Minis will probably than be budgeted to a lower price. All this started when Asia claimed that Apple had ordered smaller tablet screens. The iPad Mini is rumored to be coming out in October next to the iPhone 5.

If you ask me about iPhone budgets, I’ll say it won’t happen. These rumors have been circulating for five years. Bugdet iPad and iPhones are not what Apple wants to brand.
