WiFi T-ShirtJust went through this page, one of my friends sent me this link. Its pretty interesting. I mean, its something which is out of the box. Thinking the same way to write something attractive, draw something eye-catching. Quite an old idea, isn’t  it? With this animated decal which is removable (for washing purpose) you can help yourself or other mates, to help find out whether there is any WiFi connection nearby or not. The decals will start glowing according to the signal strength helping out you and others to quickly get aware of WiFi availability.

Advert psychology

Was going through some news, I got this interesting  stuff. It actually concerned with the capability of a service provider to show its users an ad which contains their name on it.  Let me quote the attention-grabbing part here;

‘…To get one reading of this, I asked four Web giants – AOL, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo – a simple question: can they show you an advertisement with your name in it?

This question highlights their ability to connect personal data that presumably you volunteered when registering for e-mail or other services to advertisements. In this example, I asked them if they could fulfill a request from Procter & Gamble to run Tide ads that include the viewer’s name. (Mine might say: “Louise, Buy Tide Today.”) ‘
My opinion in this regards, is somehow a bit different. No matter how accurate they go – hit you with an ad, with a name of yours. I dont think it would be too much attracting. I’ve noticed somehow similar show while searching for torrents for example “Find a life partner from Karachi” –  I am from Karachi city which is somehow not known too much. This was a bit interesting for me in the beginning but after watching it just for more than oa couple of times, I marked it spam in my mind – my eyes stopped attracting me towards such ads

Google, instead uses  quite a smart technique, which is actually a long procedure but no doubt very effective. It takes  user’s screen resolution, internet connection bandwidth, then calculates which category that user lies in. Using all this information, the ads which for example Google advertises, have a very high ‘being-hit’ probablity.

Too much colorful, blinking ads sometimes attracts users and most of the times are too much irritating. I personally like text-based ads, as they sound much more serious than usual colorful spam ads.

Lets roll!

Hello everybody who might be here. I’ve been thinking for a long time to share my ideas/opinions with my e-mates. Thoughts and ideas are better to be thrashed out since they don’t persist for long in mind – being a thought or just a concept. Concepts get created when discussed on behalf of needs, sometimes for fun,  and sometimes for no reason at all. The game is all how much you think it worth and how much it really worth.

“The human mind treats a new idea the same way the body treats a strange protein; it rejects it.”-P. B. Medawar

I’ll try my best to keep in touch with my readers as much as I could.
