Google’s self driving car

Imagine that for a moment. You’re driving down the motorway at 70mph, and you glance to your left to see two people in the back of a car, with another in the passenger seat and nobody driving. :o)

I like the idea of auto pilot, especially after a big night out!

Google have been driving their new car, or rather it has been driving itself, around the highways of San Fran for some time. The Toyota Prius, inspired by KITT and Michael Knight did have a human on board to keep an eye on things however.

Google ad perfect for a Valentines Day tweak

This viral video advert for Google is surely begging to be tweaked for a Valentines Day special?

It shows the journey of a chap from a trip to Paris, to meeting a girl, wooing her, moving to Paris, then getting married and having kids.

It’s a nice, visual way to show how the search engine is central to people’s lives. A bit like the modern day J.R. Hartley!

Great viral video from Coke

I love this ‘Happiness’ stunt by Coca-Cola on a college campus, but assuming the students were unaware that this was a stunt, that surely means the first girls was technically stealing? :o)

It’s had over 1.2m hits on YouTube so its obviously made a connection with the consumer.
