I have two entertainment hub systems in the home which I use primarily as media players - with gaming as a secondary consideration. I blogged about Apple TV not so so long ago and the excellent Apple endorsed / licensed 3rd party Nimbus gaming controller from Steelseries. The Steelseries Nimbus is very much a 3rd party product, but is an officially authorised and endorsed accessory for the Apple TV, and Apple seem to have had very significant input in its specification and manufacture. It is to...

Once a year we get the proclamation from the CoolBrands Expert Council of judges as to which brands are considered to be the coolest and most ’of the moment’.

For a Branding Expert like myself, there are all manner of peculiar entries in the top 10. As anyone who owns an Aston Martin will tell you - they are lovely cars to look at, less lovely to own - being extreme gas guzzlers and supposedly spending large parts of their working lives in a garage workshop - there is an infinite ...

On the latest Millward Brown BrandZ ’Global Top 100’ listing, Apple has overtaken Google by quite a significant margin. No doubt this has a lot to do with the phenomenal sales success of the iPad, as well as continuing strong retail performance across most divisions.

Our own household has slowly and steadily, not particularly deliberately, become rather Apple-fied. It started with iPods and iPhones, then a MacBook Pro or two, and now includes iMacs, iPads and Apple TV. I’m not ...
