The highlight of this week was briefly catching up with a couple of friends from Yahoo!. The people that I met along the way at Yahoo! were great and I am proud to say that I have more than a couple of friends from Yahoo! The company got culture right, but board level business wrong.

I didn’t get to watch The Oscars, but even I was aware that it was FUBAR’d. The Mobile World Congress saw the launch of new handsets by Sony, LG and Huawei – but were drowned about by Nokia reinventing their iconic 3310 feature phone. This showed that smartphone manufacturers had crafted their products to a high degree and no longer came up with products that amazed us. They are all now much-of-a-muchness.

Rolex broke out an advertising campaign across TV and online to coincide with The Oscars. It shows the heritage that Rolex had in Hollywood. It surprised me that Rolex felt the need to do this

In the art of film-making, it’s the smallest details that bring a world to life. Rolex is proud to recognise the art and craft of film-making, and to have played a part in some of cinema’s most iconic moments. #Rolex #Oscars

A Bathing Ape (BAPE) have done a tie-in with the new King Kong film. Given the Vietnam era setting I think that they could have done so much more such as ‘combat Zippo’ lighters, embroidered jackets and fatigues – instead there’s a t-shirt. You can tell that Nigo is no longer behind the wheel over there.
