Today, Honda unveiled the first-ever mobile barbering tool for busy, cost-conscious families. The HondaHAIR will be available as a Honda Genuine Accessory that attaches to the 2014 Odyssey Touring Elite's HondaVAC to provide an efficient way to cut hair.
So today is April Fool's Day and we are destined for a bunch of silliness. Courtesy of HubSpot comes SprocketVision, a "revolutionary new product that will change marketing forever."
What could possibly change marketing forever? SprocketVision, of course! SprocketVision is a pair of high tech glasses that help you find qualified leads for your business just by wearing them and walking around.
With "real-time inbound marketing" SprocketVision guides the user through the process of qualifying a lead in the real world.
Here's the thing. On TV and in movies, story matters. Story always matters. No matter how many special effects or hot women the producers decide to throw in, it's all crap unless there's a good story line.
So why AMC decided to drop its "Story Matters Here" tagline in favor of the meaningless, applicable-to-anything "Something More" escapes logic.
Oh sure, today's culture has the attention span of a gnat and change can't come quick enough. But when change comes, it should at least make sense and this does not.
