Disney+ is Full of Movies That Are Totally Real But Sure Don’t Look Like It

Rather than release a standard press release listing all their titles, Disney+ is taking the long way around and running a seemingly never-ending thread full of everything you’ll be able to watch when the service launches next month. A bunch of the titles will be familiar to movie fans – Disney classics, from the so-called Disney Renaissance and beyond. But there are also several titles that just seem…well, fake. You can’t help but wonder if the poor unlucky social media employee tweeting all t...

“This is mediocre”

Large organizations seek to decrease variability. Starbucks wants the very best latte you buy from them to be exactly the same as the worst one. If you define a spec and work hard to meet it, you can make it so that most things are within a reasonable distance of that spec. Which means that most of what you make is average. If an entire industry is busy seeking to meet that average, we can define that work as mediocre. Not horrible, but certainly not exceptional (because ‘exception’ -al is self-...

Best ways make coffee while camping

Good coffee isn’t just for coffee snobs anymore, and people are no longer restricted to specialty cafes when looking for something better than the average drip. Quality coffee can be had just about anywhere — including campgrounds. “While camping, you have the convenience of making coffee similarly to how you would make coffee in the comfort of your own home, only you are in the great outdoors,” says Jackie Newman, vice president of the New Jersey-based specialty roasting company World of Cof...

Amazon suit over unpaid time at security checkpoints can go forward, court rules

A lawsuit accusing Amazon of cheating warehouse workers by not paying them while they go through security checks — a case considered dead after a U.S. Supreme Court decision almost five years ago — can now proceed in a state court. The Supreme Court on Monday, the first day of its fall session, rejected an appeal by Amazon to throw out a lawsuit filed in a Nevada court by some of the same plaintiffs. Amazon had sought to overturn a lower federal court ruling that kept the case alive. Monday’s ru...

The Polar Ignite is the GPS fitness watch I've been looking for to replace my aging Fitbit — here's what it's like to use

  The $230 Polar Ignite is a waterproof smartwatch with built-in GPS.  The Polar Ignite can track your exercise and sleep, and it provides recommendations to help you improve your fitness.  It's not as feature-packed as the Apple Watch or the Fitbit Versa, but it's still a great device for health and fitness enthusiasts.    Confession time: I've been using the Fitbit Charge 2 for almost three years. I've tried countless other wearables, from the Apple Watch to the Galaxy Watch, but I've st...

Experience And Influence: The New Status Symbols

How we earn status has evolved from owning things to living unique experiences. In 1988, Professor Belk argued that our self was “extended” by our possessions. The notion of extended self is “a superficially masculine and Western metaphor comprising not only that which is seen as me (the ‘self’), but also what is seen as ‘mine’. . . . The more we believe we possess or are possessed by an object, the more a part of self it becomes.” Today, this extension of the self happens through experiences...

Are Petrol Stations the Future of Starbucks?

This Month's New Skincare Products Beat Out Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Every Time

Flannel, apple orchards, pumpkin-spiced-pretty-much-everything - if you're not careful, October can start to feel more monotonous than Nadia's drug-fueled night in Netflix's Russian Doll. (Although, hey, that's a pretty good costume idea.) The one area that never fails to surprise, however, is the skincare department. In fact, there are enough product launches this month to keep even the most insatiable entertained. From a foamy new face wash tailor-made for people with sensitive skin to a super...

History of pumpkin beer in America

There are few things we can be sure of in this world. One of them is that pumpkin beer will take over the shelves of American grocery stores from October to November, and then disappear just as quickly. This doesn’t happen in other beer-loving countries, making it a beloved (or hated) tradition that’s special to the US of A. But it wasn’t always this way. The modern pumpkin beer obsession can be traced back to Buffalo Bill’s Brewery in Hayward, California, in 1985. It was there that Bill Owen...

6 Ways to Get More Organic Traffic, Without Ranking Your Website

Posted by ryanwashereA few years ago, I wrote a post here that caught some attention in the community. I argued Google appears to be ranking websites heavily based on searcher intent — this is more true now than ever. In fact, it might be algorithmically impossible to get your website on top of the SERPs. If you find your website in this position, don't give up on SEO! The point of "Search Engine Optimization" is to get organic exposure through search engines — it doesn't necessarily have to be...

7 Must-Dos (and 5 Never-Dos) for Holiday Promotions

The holidays are right around the corner. For me, this means a few things: football is back (hello, barbecue tailgates), I’m on the road until Thanksgiving, and there’s a marketer just waiting to hit my inbox with a holiday promotion. Despite the fact that the fourth quarter comes with a mile-long to-do list and perhaps some added pressure, holiday planning doesn’t need to be a bah humbug. It also doesn’t need to feature your product library 1 day a week for 60 sixty days. To help your business...
