Little Things from Big Announcements

Little Things from Big Announcements

Today, Apple had an event where it announced some things. Little things.   First and foremost, Tim Cook started by talking about Apple’s dedication to privacy, and not-so-gently hinted at his disappointment in the government’s requests (and responses) for Apple’s assistance. The topic then shifted to both the environment, and the inroads with HealthKit that are truly making a difference …

A Local Legend Lost

Yesterday, the loss of a great Minneapolis Ad Man’s passing had begun to make its way around the internet, and caught many of us off guard.   Pat Fallon, the namesake and visionary of Fallon, passed away at the age of 70. The Minneapolis (and arguably midwest) ad scene would never be where we are without him. Perhaps unbeknownst to …

  Over the past few years, Foundation has consistently helped more people Get Back to Work. We’re sticking to our core philosophy of doing the technology tasks that others either don’t want to, or shouldn’t do.  Call it the dirty work. The nitty gritty.

The Sticky Part of Stickers

The Sticky Part of Stickers

Apple recently unveiled a new ad for their MacBook Air line of laptops. By itself, it’s a great little display of how people make their laptops their own. But there are some oddities about it.   Watch: Apple is showcasing, and encouraging, people to cover their products. To disturb their logo and brand which historically has been outlawed. Take special …

Big Blue’s Big Bet

Yesterday, Apple and IBM made an announcement that’s since echoed through the enterprise-IT world. By no means was this your standard press release. Two corporate empires, one industry rattling announcement.

The Boring Parts of Agency Operations

For all the fun that happens at our clients offices, there’s a fair share of boring too.   Sure, we love hearing about the fun stuff. But, we can’t, and shouldn’t, overlook the boring. In fact, that’s generally where we thrive – doing the stuff you don’t want to do.   When asked about their Technology Policy and Disaster Recovery …
