    Watches

    Maybe it’s that I am just back from Switzerland, where every corner seems to show a high-end watch ad, but I am wondering: Why is it that people even buy a mechanical watch today? People have phones in their pockets which are far more accurate and useful. If one...
    a big week for anti-anti-aging Allure announced that it would stop using the word “anti-aging.” I have to wonder if they are making a pitch for a more minted older audience, or if they are having a semantic rethink. The idea that beauty is the sole province of the young is...
    We are in the business of communication. We come from a time when brands could and did move the culture. Think about how weird jogging was before Nike and “Just Do It.” They changed that, they changed the world.  What about Apple and its 1984 commercial, it’s Think Different...

    This is a big deal. So far, over 300 people have joined a class-action lawsuit against Google claiming they were discriminated against in the workplace based on their age. Ever since Mark Zuckerberg’s since-recanted statement that younger people are just smarter, there has been a growing awareness of the rampant...
