Great Moments in Technology

Announcement in the media room:

“Folks, we’re aware of the Internet problems here in the room.  We’re working on it. But if you could, please try to refrain from streaming any audio or video for the time being.  Thanks.”

I’ve got a Verizon card that’s going at about a million miles an hour, so it doesn’t affect me.  In light of that announcement, though, I’m giving some thought to logging onto the WiFi network and trying to download the original cut of “Renaldo and Clara” or something.  You know, just to mess with people.

    Better yet – why not go over to the Cowboy Junkies web site and stream some free concert recordings? If you’d rather listen to Manny Acta, that’s your choice, but frankly….
    Incidentally, Craig, are you being paid to plug Verizon, or are you just dating the chairman’s daughter? Your focus on that air card kinda recalls the vividly framed post-apocalyptic bottle of Vitamin Water the kid drinks down in the bunker during The Road.

    Well done on the product placement.

    I’m a huge Bob Dylan fan and got a copy of Renaldo and Clara through the mail about 8-9 years ago before file sharing became really prominent. Boy did it suck.

    To market in full terms of quality rather than price, and in order to differentiate consequently, you necessitate to play along the classical format of the 4 Ps marketing plan. That is, Price, Product, Place and Promotion evidently you know the serious properties of the product, and the cost, but for place you should consider around the type of mass who are willing to give over 4x price of competing product whereas the low-priced option may be sold where accent is on cost, your merchandise will be suited to places/distributors where the customers will be willing to pay for quality. Thank you for this article! I’ve just recovered a easily full archive about advertising Attempt it!

    If you really want to succeed, you’ll have to go for it every day like I do. The big time isn’t for slackers. Keep up your mental stamina and remain curious. I think that bored people are unintelligent people.
