  • So called global mag propagating a US-centric view of the world. There are great CMOs outside the US ,
  • Everytime I step in I instantly regret it. Appalling service. Dirty stores. Awful coffee. Dreaming of St Ali and Dukes right now,
  • To be clear - when ordering anything large or Venti at Starbucks you are ordering a MILKSHAKE with some coffee ,
  • Further spotlighting the Wallabies Woes ,
  • Like wo has tapes anyway? Or even a tape recorder? Or a tape player? Or a fax? ,
  • RH: respect the opportunity you have @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: Stay humble. Work hard. What happened yesterday has no relevance to today or next week. Don't wait for chance. @Cannes_Lions,
  • RH: companies matter in terms of getting stories out to people. @Cannes_Lions,
  • RH points to Trad media co's entering OTT ... @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: nothing bad happens that doesn't have some good associated with it @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: Eventually will be a NFL team in London @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: The future is OTT - which means goodbye TV as we know it. Mobile + streaming + integration with games = winner @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft is concerned middle class not doing as well as they should. So right @Cannes_Lions,
  • The hard thing and the right thing are the same thing. Kraft @Cannes_Lions,
  • Practice patience. Never make a change unless you have something better. Kraft @Cannes_Lions,

Apple…

I don’t like posting on Apple… can’t be bothered with the niche who are blinded by good looks over substance – and who will wake up pretty soon on an entirely proprietary and closed platform… Dell doesn’t compete with Apple for anything other than mind share.

Frank Shaw mirrors my views on Apple’s announcements of the past week.  To which I would add…

  1. Not hard to build a thinner notebook when you take everything out.
  2. Batteries do matter
  3. No docking station was a mega mistake
  4. Apple TV was more interesting… but how are sales going? I have an Apple TV hooked up to a MiniMac on one of my systems.  What I’ve discovered is that my Dell XPS One running Raphsody, Pandora, Last FM etc… is a much better way to go… I am free to move my media about.  TV works better…

I fundamentally disagree with Steve Jobs that people are reading less. Connecting books to reading is like using running as a proxy for all exercise.  We are reading more than ever, just not necessarily on paper…
