New Corporate truth
Just saw an absolutly ironic ad of the doubleclick sort from Starbucks.

Logo at the left of the banner with the text to the right reading--

"All your malls are belong to us"

You would think someone can overrule marketing when they have a truly stupid idea.
"When it crosses my mind to do something, I don't ask why, I ask why not. And usually there's no reason not to, so I just go ahead. It's given me the strangest collection of hats"

Yes, you would think so. But you'd often be wrong. :-)

New Marketing: the last unstoppable force in the universe
Once they have the nubbles of a "Great Idea" between their teeth, beware anyone who tries to reach close to their mouths to dislodge it.

Case in point. Company I was with decided the product needed rebranding. Current name didn't invoke visions of sugarplums or something. Changed product name and tried to push it.

Something similar to the Borland/Imprise fiasco. Once those smart MBA types get an idea, it would take a Singapore caning to beat it out of them (and maybe not even then).
Memory leaks, like the corners of my mind... naw, doesn't quite make the same impression

I'll even go so far as to concede that today's postliterate teenagers are already sufficiently impaired by pop culture that anything that serves to make them even more scatterbrained is rather in the way of gilding the lily, and should not be encouraged.
