"With the cost of producing and airing commercials so astronomically high, and with so many real products and real services in your offerings, what’s the point of selling flashy impossibilities?

"Similar machines are in place in Scandinavia and on some German airports they were installed for trial periods. I tried the machine in Hong Kong and I think the main advantage is that you neither need coins (good for traveling) nor need to have a credit or debit card (good for teenagers)."
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
