Chrome Enables Do-Not-Track

Chrome finally added Do-Not-Track (DNT) to Chromium. They are the last major browser to complete implementation and start giving users a choice in terms of their preference to tracking. DNT isn’t a perfect solution as it has no enforcement. Regardless it’s a step in the right direction and empowers ad networks to respect users privacy […]

Kindle Fire HD Is Ad Supported

PCMag quotes an Amazon spokesperson: “[W]ith Kindle Fire HD there will be a special offers opt-out option for $15. We know from our Kindle reader line that customers love our special offers and very few people choose to opt out. We’re happy to offer customers the choice.” Apple may have a reputation for gouging customers […]

1984 Macintosh Ad

Looking back at the 1984 Macintosh “Introduction” ads, it’s almost hard to believe they are by Apple when you consider how complicated the layout is and how wordy they are. Especially when you realize Steve Jobs was in charge back then. It even mentions the polyphonic sound generator and RS232 and RS422 ports. These days […]

Project 365 Week 46

Crazy Ones

This Steve Jobs narration of “Crazy Ones” ad is pretty awesome. The aired version was voiced by Richard Dreyfuss. What would it take to convince Apple to air this with a simple slate at the end with an Apple logo and “Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011” at the end? Getting Jonathan Mak’s Steve Jobs Logo […]

Indented Leg Advertising

An ad agency put down “indented plates” on benches so when “people” (I assume “women” is the intended word) sit down, the plate leaves an advertisement impression on the back of their legs. Clever, a little creepy, but most of all, I can’t imagine this working nearly as well as the picture shows. First of […]

Microsoft’s “Really” Ad

I really like this ad. Over the past 3 years or so this is what America has become. Truthfully, I try not to use my phone when walking, talking, using the bathroom, at the table or other situations where it just seems grossly inappropriate. I think I’m one of the last holdouts. Given my inclination […]

Victoria Secret – You Like This

I couldn’t resist posting this one. Apparently Victoria Secret has a free “limited edition” (with store purchase of course) panty with “you like this” printed on the back with a thumbs up, an obvious homage to Facebook. Countdown to sexual harassment for unwanted “clicking” or “liking”? I’m sure some genius will get into trouble for […]

Talk To The Moose Parody

This video requires a little explanation for overseas readers. GAP ran a commercial titled “Talk To The Moose” in the US during the 2009 holiday season that was notable for featuring several young girls dancing and singing what became an Earworm for some people thanks to a fair amount of air time. I’m not sure […]

It’s Like False Advertising For Your Butt

I rarely get into advertising or underwear on this blog but I had to share this one. It’s like a Miracle Bra… but for your butt. I wonder if this booty pop trend will stick, or die quickly. I also wonder if it makes that popping sound when you put it on.
