    [Marketing] Bad things happen in the dark
    Don Imus: The dark side of citizen marketing? When you think about it — being in the dark is always scary. When you were a kid, laying in bed and you heard a strange noise in your closet or under your bed you never thought to yourself, “hey, I bet there’s an ice cream sundae making machine in there!” ” No — it was always a monster, a giant spider or a deranged killer.

    The entertaining denial and explanation is below: There have been reports of a Twitter Shout Out™ product being launched on the market soon. My late-night speculation on Twitter readying a new feature uncovered not a new way for users to send notices to others on the site, but instead, one of the multiple internal-only accounts used to raise company morale and togetherness.

With an Apple product, you are getting an Apple hardware device with an Apple operating system. Should something go awry, you can usually look to Cupertino (or AT&T ). But with an Android-based phone, issues could be tied to the hardware provider (HTC for me), the Android OS, or even a thin software layer on top of Android which many manufacturers are using to "enhance" the experience.

    [Marketing] Why you need a blog on your website
    As such, I think any business that’s serious about using online marketing needs to integrate a blog into their website, in order to take advantage of what a blog can offer. I’ve become more convinced than ever that the blog is the center tool of all the other social media tools, mainly because it functions like a website and because if updated regularly, it not only allows you to post material to social media sites, but also helps with the search engine optimization for your website. Don’t think of a blog as just a tool to post articles. It’s much more than that.
    [Marketing] The value of an email subscription form for a blog
    Also from a marketing standpoint, providing multiple means of disseminating information can only improve how that information is received and dispersed by others. I’ve heard some pretty interesting claims that email will eventually go away because of the emerging technology that is providing us access to quicker ways to get information. I’m not sure I really believe those claims, if only because I think email is a fairly useful communication platform and something that provides some level of privacy that social media doesn’t provide.
