New Diesel Fragrance Campaign Site

Martina from Adverblog writes about a new site for a new Diesel Fragrance. It’s based on a series of videos and on the omnipresent shout out „I am alive“.

Throughout the whole site you find lots of this „I am alive“, it can get anoying at some point so be ready to turn the speakers of.

There is a lot more to explore, so try it out!

Is Skype Spam a reality?

To a greater or lesser extent most of us have gotten used to email spam. There are ways to filter it out, and the rest you can usually identify very easily and delete quickly.

But just today I have had a curious incident with Skype. Already a few days ago I had 2-3 people I have never heard of trying to get in contact with me, with spam-like messages.

Today, I was invited to a group chat with I don’t know how many other „victims“ I suppose. Most of them had left the group chat once I saw the open window, and all that was left were a few spam-like messages chatted by the initiator of the chat.

Does this mean IM is also subject to chat? Have they managed to invade the one digital communications channel that was – sofar – spam free?

And how about voice chat via skype? Will we have to face audio-spam ads during our telephone conversations?

I’m not sure whether or not I really saw spam, or just some unlucky coincidences. Did anyone encounter similar phenomena? According to Google, it does indeed exist…
