today's AMAZING TV AD : honda's "cog" 2 minute tv spot

for more on this, go to this post :; april 14 post.
the inspiration is mount pinatubo when some years ago, all of a sudden, after decades of being dormant, it decided to erupt, spewing debris and ash several kilometers high, blowing ashes to float everywhere, far and wide, turning the skies gloomy gray as far away as metro manila, hundreds of kilometers away, covering metro manila streets and rooftops with thick ash. the pinatubo eruption was so powerful that its ashes changed the color of sunsets not only in the philippines but also worldwide.

that's what happens when clients and advertising agencies decide to run ads not worthy to be called advertising. its dark, its huge and very irritating and unfortunately, everywhere!

all they are doing is wawam! what a waste of advertising money!

here is a first row view of Philippine Advertising and Philippine Marketing.

what ails the iphone

there are two problems: a) the iphone is unable to connect to 3G networks and b) 3rd party applications won't run.

read articles here :

google the problem and many other articles will pop up.

apple released a firmware update yesterday for the connection problem to 3G networks but there are still complaints. the other problem, 3rd party applications not being able to run will be fixed in september.

that means philippine buyers of the iphone from globe might have a dead phone when they get it. customers will need to update the firmware first and hope for the best that it will be able to connect. unless of course globe takes it upon themselves to first update the firmware before they hand over the iphone to their customers.

it would also be wise for philippine customers to ask globe if its wiser not to upload any 3rd party application until september. if customers download them now, they might not run and might cause more problems.

let's see if globe's sales personnel and customer service are up to the task before them.
