Urban Outfitters made me giggle.
The Wolfram Language is pretty mental. (long video, 13 minutes)
When asked what they would do if their partner wanted them to stop watching porn 43% of men said they would stop.
37% said they’d “sneak it.”
What I am reading here is “43% of men choose an answer before reading all the options on multiple choice tests.”
I can assure you that we are outraged too. What puzzles me more is that T-Mobile did not speak with us before or after they launched this clearly inappropriate and ill-conceived marketing promotion.
Why would they? Blackberry is losing people faster than ever. There’s no sign - not a single indicator - that they will ever recover. On top of that, what would T-Mobile say to Blackberry anyway?
“Hey we’re going to try to get people to move to a competitor’s phone because we’re afraid your product will make them leave the network.”
Changes zero things.
There was nothing ill-conceived about T-Mobile’s move. Worst case they lose a paltry number of die-hard Blackberry users who’s contracts aren’t nearly as valuable as data-hogging iPhone users. Chen even calls their relationship with T-Mobile “once productive and profitable.” As in, “not anymore.” Last year T-Mobile was planning on taking Blackberrys out of their stores.
What’s ill-conceived here is Blackberry’s belief they still matter.
