1. Nike sells a commodity, they sell shoes. And yet when you think of Nike you feel something different than a shoe company. In their ads, as you know, they don’t ever talk about the product, they don’t ever talk about their air soles, how they’re better than Reebok’s air soles. What’s Nike do in their advertising? They honor great athletes and they honor great athletics. That’s who they are. That is what they are about.

  7. Windows Phone 8 Features, VPN Uncertain | Insideris →

    Hopefully, this will make those people whining about the Apollo upgrade to shut up. FWIW, I believe that MS will still try to get Windows Phone 8 to run atleast on the 512 MB RAM devices. The only thing that the current WP7 owners will probably miss out on will be the more graphically intensive games. I believe all apps can be made to run with the current gen hardware. This is a model that Microsoft has perfected all these years - with Windows in PCs
