Hello? It’s the First iPhone Commercial.

In cased you missed the Oscars the other night, Apple ran its first teaser commercial for the upcoming iPhone.

Apple has always been great at marketing by keeping it simple. I believe simplicity is the best way to get your message across to an audience and I always design with simplicity in mind.

BTW, if anyone is interested in buying TheiPhone.net from me, make me an offer.

On another note, I am working on a redesign for my web development company, infinFX. We are planning to integrate a blog into the site containing useful articles about web development, design, marketing, and reaching your target audience. It is taking up a ton of time, but look out for that soon.

I will also have a special guest blogger on the infinFX blog. Some of you know him around the blogosphere but I will keep his identity secret for now.

When Does Bad Advertising Equal Effective Publicity?

They say in the world of advertising, there is no such thing as bad publicity. As long as you evoke a passionate response from your audience, then you are getting their attention. But, when does lousy advertising equal good publicity? Apparently, when it is so hilarious that people can’t help but watch to see how much more ridiculous it gets.

Case in point, this commercial was submitted to YouTube and was later submitted to Reddit and received over 500 votes and gained over a hundred comments, and almost 200,000 views at the time I am writing this. I couldn’t help but wonder when it was going to end, and what their ad agency was smoking when they produced it. It is so unbelievable it almost seems like a parody. Just watch.

It’s just like, it’s just like, a mini mall! Hey, hey!

The Unbelievable Power of Google

Google is the world’s #1 search engine and one of the most profitable corporations on the planet. In fact, based on its recent stock price of $513 per share, Google, which has made searching the Web easy and even fun, is larger than Disney, General Motors and McDonald’s combined. However, it is interesting to me that many non-savvy Internet users are still unaware that Google is anything more than a search engine.

We all know Google is working on some super-secret and incredibly powerful technologies, in the GoogleLabs, but how powerful do they want to become?

Watch this video and see how you feel about Google’s power and their goal to provide access to all information to all people anytime.

The Google Master Plan

What If Google Took Over the Media?

Earlier tonight, one of my professors sent me a link to a video showing a very interesting look into the future. Imagine if Google contiuned on its current path of brand and media domination…and what would happen in the next 7 years. This video is a must-watch for anyone who is curious about the future of the Internet and news media.
