Visual treats

I cannot stop myself from hanging out on this site new site for Microsoft's Zune player. I love the visual impact it delivers, the navigation, and the variety of imagery. The play list also has some great tracks on it. It's so interesting and visually pleasing it just makes me smile. This is what brands should be all about - delivering people with interesting chances to play with their brand. I've been going on about it all week. How good is that, a non-user talking about your brand to anyone that will listen for week?

And I have asked around, and no, I still don't know anyone who owns one. Do you? Why? What's cool about it? I'd love to know.

This is great. I was at a conference today and saw a brilliant presentation of a new study that has been done about the contents of America's handbags. Called In your Purse - Archaeology of the American Handbag, it's an enlightening look (especially for blokes) at the dark recesses of the handbag. Whats fascinating is the potential for innovation that the humble handbag presents.

We've a project going on in the office on the notion of convenience. So this little blog has been set up by Paul to discuss the opposite - those things that inconvenience and bug the hell out of us. He's looking for comment and stories about things that get on your nerves and you see as inconvenient in your day-to-day life.

So please have a look and leave your own story somewhere on the blog. If you also find a way to pass it on to other people you know get riled up by life's little inconveniences, that would be fantastic.
