Sonic's viral marketing

I'm not going to lie, I love the Sonic Drive-Thru ads. They're funny...especially the one's with the two guys sitting in their car. 

Sonic has a new website to explore their 1-billion-something drink combinations, complete with commentary from TJ (left) and "Guy-in-black-jacket" (right). 


Fold Phone?

You've heard of a flip phone. Thanks to the incredible shrinking micro chip, we could soon see a fold phone. Check it.



Dude, I F'd up!

Notice anything different about the blog? I accidentally wiped out the template in a freak re-templating accident. Dude, where's my blog?

I'll have it back to it's original state in a few days. Oops.



Radical Opacity

Apple was all but dead in the 90's, but now they're on top of the world. Wired has a great story that explores how the company that refuses to follow the rules has changed them all together. 


Think Different?

Us Apple users insist that we're more creative than the rest of the world, but is it true? Could be, according to a recent study:

The team conducted an experiment in which 341 university students completed what they believed was a visual acuity task, during which either the Apple or IBM logo was flashed so quickly that they were unaware they had been exposed to the brand logo. The participants then completed a task designed to evaluate how creative they were, listing all of the uses for a brick that they could imagine beyond building a wall. 

People who were exposed to the Apple logo generated significantly more unusual uses for the brick compared with those who were primed with the IBM logo, the researchers said. In addition, the unusual uses the Apple-primed participants generated were rated as more creative by independent judges. 



Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
