Marketing News Roundup, December 10



It’s that time again!

  • Just in case you needed another named online shopping holiday in the month of December this year, the Monday after Cyber Monday (December 8 this year) has been dubbed Mega Monday and Hitwise says the traffic bears the title out.
  • Another company jumps on the “Data availability” bandwagon: MySpace goes with Google for MySpaceID.

    As far as I know, youtube is not really making much money even though they have many viewers…

    Google is really very great. This is one more step to retain as no.1 in SE.

    Yeah I think Hulu is so neat. I just found out about them in a post done here a couple of weeks ago. And Google maps is impressive. We invest in real estate and I sometimes when we look up houses it will show a view as if we are looking right from the curb. It’s a trip. I can determine if I want to go and look at the house based on that sometimes. Technology is so cool.

    I did all my Christmas shopping online the week before Thanksgiving this year so that I could get the things I wanted before the stock was gone. A lot of my friends did the same.

    I wonder how many others did that and if that will eventually get it’s own name too!

    Amazon slays me … they are just extraordinary at what they do. I’ve been a customer of theirs from the very beginning, and they’ve always impressed me.
