Five things that made my day this week:

#iworkinpr – probably the best tumblr account. Ever.

BMW announced it’s i3 Coupe concept this week. It was buzzword compliant with plug-in technology; but the most interesting thing for me about it was the way in which the car shows the current range that could be travelled as part of its in-car instrumentation.

Panasonic’s fightback against the BYOD (bring your own device) trend kicked off with a white paper on ‘Secret Saboteurs’; based on research indicating that a substantial amount of workers would like to kill their laptop. Panasonic thinks that rather than give workers something they might enjoy using; inflict them with a ToughBook instead. You can get their white paper on the phenomenon here.

A Golden Light Underneath My Car is a short film for Carhartt | Work In Progress shot in Bari and Naples in Italy.

McCann Worldwides mobile personality profile was a simple idea well executed.
