Link to Scott Galloway and The Four Horsemen

@profgalloway proselytizes about Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google. I agree with many things he says.  eCommerce -> brick & mortar – I completely agree with him on eCommerce companies opening stores, even though I have no idea what a Warbly Parker is.

Back in 2011, Twitter and Google got divorced. Actually, it turns out it was a trial separation. On February 4th, they announced a new deal that has Tweets showing up in search results again. (This is possible because one of Twitter’s latest acquisitions, GNIP recently indexed all tweets back to 2006.) This is great news because it …

Way back on 7 days ago, I posted the reasons I believed that Apple would build a car. I was quickly reminded by a friend of mine, who goes by the name of Brad Hampton and happens to be a Senior Digital Consultant for Shift Digital (and agency focused on the automotive market), that I may …
