Trolls in Wonderland

Welcome to the hivemind, otherwise known as Collective Consciousness. You know: having a shared belief system. Similar group behavior. Polite society. In real life, anyway. Online the hive mind is the stuff of Kafka and Orwell, or their thirteen-year-old versions anyway.

There you are - CHANEL N°5 / It's not a journey / Brad Pitt - (2012)

It's not a journey... every journey ends but we go on. But wherever I go, there you are. Brad Pitt seems as distracted as this monologue is. Points for pretentious lighting! We'll have it flickr and move, it'll add "drama"....

 

Solve media : the type-in captcha that makes people remember your sales-phrase

Solve media are captcha's that fight 'banner blindness', as the phrase you make people type could be your selling point. And you all remember what people told you when you were a kid; if you want to remember something write it down. So here you can have captchas making people type anything from "choose Jif" to "yadda yadda yadda" and "all the adnews not fit to print". Why not.

As a publishers there's advantages as well, for one thing the graphs on your end are clear and quickly updated, allowing you to see which site of yours is performing better (if you have several).

Facebook data breach allows anyone to view your info via your phone number - it's a feature!

Hothardware confirms that a massive data breach found by a security enthusiast exposes your private information to total strangers.

"About a month ago I was just browsing Facebook on my Facebook mobile application and it had an option called 'Find friends using contacts' -- what it does is that it compares the contact list from your phone to the Facebook database to see if you have any friends that are in your contacts but not on your Facebook account," Prakash told The Next Web. "I also later figured out that simply 'searching' a person's phone number (including country code) will show you their account."

Wendy's logo gets an update, pigtails stick out of new frame.

It's not quite as drastic as the stiletto clad sexy Wendy's spotted in Russia last year, but still a rather massive update. The Wendy's logo has a new look, the first makeover done since 1983. The original Wendy was based on Dave Thomas' daughter, she was dressed up at the tender age of eight to model for the look, and to get the Pippi Longstocking pigtails, they put pipe-cleansers in her hair.

What do you think of the new cleaner look?

Libra Invisibles (2012) :30 Australia

Clemenger BBDO Australia bring us this different take on the feminine products for women. Libra, the Australian tampon company, drops this one on us. It's the old switcheroo in which one woman wakes the other one up for "boot camp." The other one meekly protests it's her period, before being thrust a box of Libra.

Cut to the women in their car watching their hot male Ozzie counterparts during their practice. Geddit? It's not about the women working out at all. Even on your heaviest period you can still get out there ogle the boys.
