This guest post is by Marjorie Clayman of Clayman Advertising. There are a lot of things that shows like Friends didn’t warn teens and twenty-somethings about. For example, you seldom saw, on any episode, scenes where the characters’ bodies randomly decided to become overweight or broken down. Monica and Chandler never said, “Yippee! Saturday!

"It's not enough that movie theatres and TV vendors, desperate for differentiation, are foisting 3D on an unwilling and largely uninterested market. Now those technologies are making regular movies worse too. Turns out those 3D projectors have to be manually switched to show regular films in a complicated process made worse by DRM protections.

    [Comments] How To Blow It As A Business On Halloween
    Subscribe to the comments for this post? Tweet Yesterday my family and I went on our yearly trek to the Mill Creek Town Center where we’ve found it to be a great trick or treat location. It’s a terrific hip/trendy outdoor shopping area, and the crown jewel of the town. They host great events, and the Halloween celebration is always a hit with the kids. The local businesses do a great job at dressing up their stores, themselves, and creating a fun, safe atmosphere for kids to trick or treat. Nothing. No candy, no employees, CLOSED. Excuse me, but ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Really? Tweet This!

    [Comments] Strike Two With The Ad Age Power 150
    Subscribe to the comments for this post? Tweet Denied. Twice. Despite working hard to build a better blog, I’ve been turned down again by the Ad Age Power 150. Many of you may not even know what that is. For those that don’t, the Ad Age Power 150 is a list of the top ranking English language marketing blogs in the world. Of course self-proclaimed, but the reality, there really isn’t another resource that competes these days. For that reason, cracking this list has kind of been a goal of mine, and definitely a motivator in my blogging. This is where I have a problem. Tweet This!

After all, the broadcast television show does a reasonable job of displaying and explaining technology to a mainstream news channel.
