Google Owns The Internet

I’m currently taking IST 402, which is a class centered around Google Online Advertising.  Our class is made up of 10 groups of 5, and we will be competing with teams across the world during a 21 day marketing competition.  Today during class, we did an exercise in which we had to look up something we wanted to buy, check out the ads and then explain why the ads were good or bad.

My teammate Eileen typed in “Puma Sneakers For Women” and this is what came up (click on the picture to zoom in):

Women And Sneakers For Sale

The internet is hilarious.  End of story.

Question of the Day: Sweet Mobile Apps

AT&T is sponsoring a pretty cool competition in which entrants can win $10,000 cash in scholarship money for creating a mobile device application. Teams of up to four people can enter a custom-built application for the purpose of e-learning.  The rules state that the “innovating e-learning mobile app” should be functional across multiple platforms. Submissions are due by September 15, 2010 and so far there are only ten teams signed up. So my question for you is:

If you could develop a mobile device application, what would it do?
