This week’s brilliant brand idea is one to watch and comes (again) from the minds at Apple. Mastercard’s CEO said recently that his company saw contactless payments jump 40% in Q1 2020. American Express also has seen a sharp rise and a big drop in the use of cash or swiping a credit card. The Apple watch […]
More like how: you’re connected to the internet. Today, in 1988, Apple launched a service to connect your computer to the internet.

A quick history lesson on baseball: the first televised game happened today back in 1939. Princeton beat Columbia 2-1. This was a test game for MLB, as the first major league game on TV was Cincinnati taking on the Brooklyn Dodgers in a double header in NYC. For you TV content production types: only 2 […]
Could have been created in 1921 London as the Buck Fizz. Or by bartender Frank Meier in Paris at the Ritz. He only used sparkling wine…no champagne.
