The hip and cool went out and bought iPods and Beats.

BB, HP and Polaroid went out and bought the hip and cool.

One way makes the company money. The other way spends it.

BTW, not a new strategy for BB. They've been pushing their "for do-ers, not for looks" marketing for the last year. I think there were some singers and musicians involved in it. It's success can be measured...

Don't forget Beats also went out and bought Dr. Dre (and Bob Brunner). :wink:

I still say that having a spokesperson, or design lead is very different than claiming this person as the global design director.

“I saw a lot of poor decisions being made with regard to design and the overall image of the brand,” she said.


True.

A source close to Keys said that she believes that phones with more dramatic color schemes – such as zebra prints and luminescent orange – will appeal to the youth market.


Oi vey.

I blame this all on the undergraduate schools in the world. They need to make their marketing degrees harder to attain. At the very least, make the requirement to form a complete sentence mandatory.
