It seems the Americans will do anything for a ticket to the Superbowl. Sarah Pany a University student from LA held an auction on ebay earlier this week to see if she could be someones date to the Superbowl. Unfortunately ebay stepped in and cancelled the auction. Then Axe (America’s version of Lynx deodorant) stepped in and gave the student 4 tickets, so Sarah invited two of her good looking girlfriends and now there is one ticket left for a lucky male to attend the Superbowl with three gorgeous dates.

I think this is a great move by Axe to leverage of a national news story and put a twist on it. It is companies that are able to make big decisions like this in short amounts of time which will be remembered in the minds of the consumers.

Mintd is a website that allows up-and-coming local designers to sell their works online. At the moment the website is mostly selling jewellery and clothes but there are grand plans to start selling mp3’s and movies. Their point of difference from other marketplace website is their emphasis on community, which makes this site look like a mash up of ebay and myspace. This site has huge potential and will be interesting to follow.

In this website Windows Vista teams up with comedian Demetri Martin, a regular at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. The website is great because they have been able to translate Demetri's dry humour into an online space. They have created mini episodes which are released over time to the public. The Windows Vista product is not overly pushed through the website and episodes which I think is a great move by Microsoft.
