What They Say, What They Mean

from the technology-advertising-sucks dept

A very funny article over at CIO Magazine (yeah, I know, who knew they had a sense of humor?) about some of the recent advertisements from big technology firms that make no sense whatsoever. The writer tries to decipher what they ads say, and what sort of message they’re getting across. My favorite quote: “Cingular Wireless, a joint venture of BellSouth and SBC that merged under an emperor’s-new-clothes-style brand name, never really tells you what they do other than to insist that they’re all about unleashing human potential. A lot of people used to say that about LSD too.”
