It must be nice to be Verizon right now. Free from the intense scrutiny AT&T receives by having the hottest and “smartest” smartphone, it can appear to rise above it all. It can have TV ads to claim the best network on the planet, and it’s […] Read more »

Fortune has a nice article on discussions with IT professionals with regards to the iPhone. I especially like this quote from a former CIO: “What’s interesting about the iPhone is [that] the capability of the device is tremendous,” he added. “We’re looking closely at it. There […] Read more »

When writing about Microsoft’s previous Laptop Hunters ad, I made the following plea: So, Microsoft, I’m begging you to bring back Lauren #1. Give her the same $1,000 budget so she can easily rule out a Mac In its newest ad, the company did reduce the […] Read more »
