I’ve ranted before about the misuse of QR codes, but this takes the cake: a QR code on a website. BONUS!: It takes you to a Flash website that doesn’t play on an iPhone.


Looking for a great gift for your girlfriend/wife/mother and want to do some good in the process? This Saturday, December 3 from 5:30 until 8:30 at the Amelie Wine Bar you can attend a trunk show of Robyn Rhodes and have a portion of the proceeds from each sale go to the American Foundation for Suicide […]


We shop at places we like. So I love seeing the strategy behind this spot for Macy’s – it ties them to Christmas in a way that Saks or Target or any other retailer can’t. And yes, the tie is 100% manufactured, but the nostalgia they pull from comes from a place that doesn’t completely […]
