The world’s best marketing machine is back, and how! As much as I admire Apple for what its done for its shareholders, I’m equally in awe of how it has created an army of loyal (mindless?) fanboys and fangirls.

You guys probably think I’m some BB hating, RIM bashing guy. Well, I won’t deny it, I am. And today I’m delighted that BB declared massive lay offs, a $1 billion loss and that they are finally deciding to move away from consumer markets. All on the (supposed) eve of the launch of BBM for […]

Rovio, the company behind Angry Birds, launched their latest game, Bad Piggies. I’ve been playing it for the last 10 minutes or so and it’s fun! But I can’t seem to get my mind away from the fact that it costs .99 cents on iTunes and is free on the Google Play Store.
