With holiday shopping in full swing, it’s time to identify the buys and some busts in the content and consumer electronics fields. And with electronics far outselling clothing (unless you are dressing your smartphone) keep your eyes on the real prize.
Times are changing with technological advancements are expected to reshape the holiday season. The changes go far beyond actual gifts to the overall experience which can be good and bad. You decide.
Santa and Reindeer Facing Unemployment/Layoffs?
The Esquire Network
Bye Bye Rain (and other) Forests
Attack of the Gaming Systems
Dropping Big-Screen TV Prices
Smartphone “Upgrade Programs”
And the Winner is…
The No Gift Award goes to football venues trying to inject social media into the fading fan experience to slow continued attendance declines. Displaying random generic tweets and tweeting for the next song to be played –What DOES the Fox Say?? Is a lame excuse for out of town highlights, scores, replays and the former long-term staples of in-stadium jumbotrons.
Sometimes not giving a gift is better than a gift you have zero use for.
The Lump of Coal Award goes to Comcast, for introducing a monthly $1.75 Broadcast TV fee starting in 2014. An effort to avoid jumping programming costs, the NBC owner has chosen the fee approach which towns have already embraced sports and rubbish fees after townspeople voted down property tax increases. Ughh. Happy New Year!
….And feel free to re-gift this list.
