I just saw an article that caught my eye – World’s Most Valuable Brands.
Apple has topped the list, with Google biting at its heals, although behind by more than $70 billion (and yes, that’s a “b”). This battle is interesting considering the Apple vs. Android war that is raging. Personally, I love my iPhone and iPad. I had a Droid and it didn’t thrill me. I was very happy to leave it for an iPhone. I think Apple is stronger here because their product is consistent, whereas Google has allowed anyone and everyone to build off of their operating system.

I just don’t have time to be virtually running all over the place trying to figure it out. With Apple, it’s easy. I like that.
The rest of the brands aren’t very surprising: IBM, McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, AT&T, Microsoft, Marlboro (OK, that one surprised me), Visa, and China Mobile (another surprise!). For the most part, these are brands that have dominated for some time.

I realize it’s pretty standard fodder to write about what you’re thankful for during the fourth week of November, but that’s why we have Thanksgiving, isn’t it? To reflect on what we have and give thanks for those blessings? On of my new favorite shows is AMC’s The Walking Dead. I had heard the buzz [...]
Halloween trick-or-treating was delayed this year due to Superstorn Sandy, but the kids had a blast. It was chilly, which is why Spider-Girl is sporting a princess look as well. We’ve been going with our neighbors for years, and while it was cold, it was great to see them. Now, to taste test some candy…
Source: mobile.twitter.com via Dana on Pinterest I know exactly what I wanted Sass to be for Halloween – Goldilocks. I have a dress my mom made be when I was about her age that is blue with a white apron, and it was perfect. Which of course meant that she wanted to be anything [...]
