Posts That Caught My Eye

Alaska Airlines Unveils Its First Major Brand Refresh in 25 Years

I really like the new look. It isn’t radically different, but it does freshen up the brand a bit. It was impressive how they rolled it out across several mediums yesterday!

Hilton Answers Worldwide Clamor for Yet Another Brand, Tru; Shall We Meet at The Hive?

This new brand does not impress me. Basically it sounds like a nice European hostel. Hostels are fine and I have stayed in many, but my guess is the prices of this new chain will be higher so you might as well get the authentic experience.

A Photo Booth Business Has Much In Common With Manufactured Spending

Some really great things to consider in this outside the box post about manufacturing spend. Yes his points could apply to almost any business, but they still are applicable.

Turnover Tuesday – Best Buy Gamer’s Club

I really enjoy the Turnover Tuesday posts about reselling from Oren. This is another great one and yes Gamer’s Club Unlocked is definitely worth the $30 for 2 years in my opinion.
