Hype According to the article “Hype”by Kalle Lasn ,advertisement are toxic to our way of thinking and decision making. The author going to says every day an estimated 12 billion display ads,3 million radio commercials and 200,00 TV commercials air each day and this is in North America alone .The author says there is now where to run. NO one can be exempted and nobody feels it is unnecessary in the our lives .This tell us that no matter where you are ,there is going to be some form of advertisement trying to influence you. Advertisement can affect our self image like mind bombs. Advertising like drug is dangerous to the people and control our thinking. For example,when I looked around, and all the items and equipment in my home, I can soon count up to more than 30 logo such as SONY, apple and so on many, many badges. Each a product with a logo, and I guess, at least more than 100 kinds of signs in their own homes.In the street, in the mall, and at the bus stop, we can see countless ads, advertising in virtually influence our lives. When my mom was watching TV, about 10 minutes, and then there are some advertisements, at this time my mom looked at about five to ten different advertising but she didn't mean to these. Sometimes my mother saw some advertising to introduce some articles for daily use, she will think advertisements introduce something must be a good thing, she will can't help wanted to buy these things, but the result is my mom bought these things are some bad things.When my mother know advertising introduction is bad, but she often could not help myself. Every time her shopping, she will feels very regret but she could not control her thinking . Advertisement are everywhere in our life, just like drug affects our thinking and our life, i really hope in life less…...

Hydia Hype

...1/25/2013 The Hyundai Hybrid Hype The advertisers for the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid have tucked the slogan and theme for their ad on the line following the company name, and the make and model of the automobile, they are showcasing. In very small fine print, almost subliminally, it whispers to the reader from the corner of the page, “New thinking for new possibilities.” The ad graphically depicts a pastoral landscape of beautiful trees softly backlit by the golden glow of sunshine. In the middle of the page, an image of a man dressed in a suit and tie with a jet pack on his back flies through the sky on his way to work or an important meeting. An androgynous figure of what could be his spouse waves good bye to him from the balcony of a very large, architecturally modern, 3 story glass and steal beamed home. In the foreground of the ad is the star of the show; an icy blue Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. The Sonata Hybrid sits on a drive way bed of tiny peat gravel with a border of stone. Coupled with the statement, “New thinking for new possibilities,” and the image that accompanies it, there leaves little room for doubt that the ad for the Sonata Hybrid by Hyundai was designed specifically to appeal to the reader’s pathos and ethos, while the use of logos in this ad is questionable. Hyundai is relying on our pathos, or sympathies, for the well-being of the planet in this Earth conscious, eco-friendly, age of the 21st century. The overall intent of this pictorial image is to...

Gangs and Medida

...that committed that crime. This is because “it generated interest” in the story and due to journalistic liabilities, because “any group of people who are involved with crime can technically be termed a ‘gang’ even if they have no street affiliation” (Jankowski, 1992 pg. 286). Today, many media will admit, that in the 1980s there was a lot of hype about gangs and other social issues like the crack epidemic. Hollywood and the entrainment industry has also found a great success hyping up street gran activity in producing movies and television shows. Going back to 1961 with West Site Story, to Boyz ‘N the Hood (1991), and recently Dexeptz (2012). Each of these movies grossed millions of dollars. In the past few years you seen a number of street gangs shows on television, like the History Channels, Gangland (2007-2010) and currently The Devils Ride and Amish Mafia on the Discovery Channel. Some of these shows are questionable in the reality and truthfulness, however that just supports the idea on the media still enjoys the hype of gangs. For the most past gangs are not positive organizations and the media does play a role in creating a hype and negative perception of gangs. Some un-official proof of this is the fax and email chain that goes around a few years, in which you flashing your headlights at an on coming car (either because there lights are off of their high beams are on) is use as a common gang member initiation. The story is if you flash your high beams back at......

How Marketing Hype Hurt Boeing and Apple

...„How Marketing Hype Hurt Boeing and Apple“ We all know, Marketing is the key to success, doesn’t matter if we are talking about automobile manufacturers or the bank sector. They all need a strong marketing strategy or marketing plan to reach the main goal in businesses: “make your customer satisfied”. Customers are the most important and I guess the biggest part of stakeholders, but there are also shareholders also called as investors, which are interested in marketing activities as well. However, the article “How Marketing Hype Hurt Boeing and Apple” published in the Harvard Business Review on November 2nd 2007 and written by John Quelch, talks about two companies, Boeing, one of the two market leaders in the airplane branch and Apple, which was temporary the most valuable brand in the World (July 2011) and perhaps the most innovative company the last couple of years, their marketing activities in 2007 as well as the associated effect to shareholders. A shareholder or stockholder is an individual or institution that owns one or more shares of stock in a public or private corporation and is interested in the business performance of that company. Respectively, those kind of stakeholders are also directly influenced in their actions by marketing decisions, the current market situation etc. Boeings marketing managers for instance did a great job, when they showcased a prototype of their new aircraft model 787, also known as “Dreamliner”, to...

Alibaba Ipo

...good prospect, the company is facing stiff competition from their China competitors in the e-commerce front. Tencent, it’s toughest competitor has recently made a very strategic move by venturing with Baidu. On the US front, Alibaba may face some difficulties depite the hype. Chinese stocks typically do not perform well in the US compared to the homegrown ones. Lastly, the Chinese market is not what it used to be. The market has taken hits from many fronts and their growth has slowed down considerably this year. Alibaba may not be able to achieve the kind of growth that they have achieved before and the growth that investors are anticipating. Thus this high IPO price may just be a temporary illusion built up by Wall Street’s hype and the bubble could burst within the year. Long-term investors should hold off for a while and wait to see how the stock does. When the hype dies down, the stock could be devalued. Despite it’s difficulties, Alibaba still does hold a lot of potential and can be a good long-term investment at the right time. Having said all that, there is hope for this stock as it is the most highly anticipated IPO of 2014. For the short term, it would serve well to buy in early and ride out the hype where the price is expected to rise. However unless you are a wealthy investor or a large institution, chances are that you won’t be able to get your hands on the stock within the first few days. This is the most exciting IPO to hit Wall Street in a while and......

Case Analysis

...press junkets and reputation generated hype generated by the name Stephen Spielberg, 2001's Artificial Intelligence: AI was propelled forward into one of the largest multimedia marketed films. The majority of the buzz surrounding this film was created by the viral marketing plan of using Internet surfers and the online gaming community. Warner Brothers spent over $1 million on the game project. Users could sign on and play a highly interactive and intricate murder mystery. It required users to have a broad knowledge of history, mathematics, sciences and other subjects. Gamers created online "communities" to play the game. Faxes and phone calls and emails would be sent from "Mother" as clues to help users solve the game. Though the game was specifically designed for the most experienced and dedicated science fiction online community, movie makers wanted to draw in that specific audience as research had proven that that particular audience wouldn't have responded favorably to AI, because it would've been seen as too mainstream. As more buzz was generated more and more everyday users would log on and search on Google for names such as "evan chan" or "jeaninne sallis" and enter into the labyrinth that is the game. As more and more buzz was generated, an undercurrent of anti-buzz was created. Sites dedicated to urging users to stop playing the game and face the truth popped up. But in the business of disseminating information and creating hype and a buzz worthy event, there......

Comment on the Assession That There Are Three Factors Which Influnce the Market Whish Are Fear, Greed and Greed.

...price and value of stocks in foreign countries, and changes in exchange rates will increase or decrease the cost of doing business in a country, which will affect the price of stocks of companies doing business abroad. While long-term movements in exchange rates are affected by fundamental market forces of supply and demand and purchase price parity, short-term movements are driven by news, events and futures trading and are difficult to predict. Hype Stocks and the stock market also can be affected by hype about a company or the release of new products or services. Many people and organizations have an interest in promoting particular stocks and industries to increase the value of their own shares and profits, and positive financial reports and stock market newsletters, Internet blogs, press releases and news reports can build high expectations for the performance of companies, which will raise the price of their stocks. This can occur even when the hype has no foundation in truth; investors are wise to consider peopleâ??s reaction to hype rather than analyze the merits of the positive promotion.rnrnHype (and its opposite) can be advanced by respected stock market authorities such as Warren Buffet, Peter Lynch and hedge fund investor and financial speculator George Soros; such is the respect given to these individualsâ?? skill and past success that they sometimes can affect the movement of markets by simply suggesting that developments might occur. ...

...Provide assessment on the position/ stage of QR codes in the Technology Hype Cycle (as of 2015). 10marks The Hype Cycle is a branded graphical presentation developed and used by US Information Technology (IT) research and advisory firm Gartner for representing the maturity, adoption and social application of specific technologies.3 Five regions of Gartner's Hype cycle are: Innovation Trigger(potential technology breakthrough kicks off), Peak of Inflated Expectations(Success stories through early publicity), Trough of Disillusionment( waning interest), Slope of Enlightenment (2nd & 3rd generation products appear) and Plateau of Productivity (Mainstream adoption starts). As of 2015 of the Gartner’s QR codes are sitting comfortably in the trough of disillusionment – but that doesn’t mean they are gone for good. It just means the hype is over.4 In reality, many products or services never reach the end of the Gartner’s cycle, as the disadvantages prove insurmountable and mainstream adoption never kicks off. The QR codes, for example. They were hyped as the alternative to coupons and very convenient. In reality, most consumers were either confused by them, or tried them only to find they often didn’t scan properly. As QR codes demonstrate, if a technology isn’t reliable, it stands very little chance of taking off. 5 Image Source : http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/3114217 According to Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Digital Marketing, 2015, the following trends......

Media

...‘Our enjoyment of media products is influenced by the platforms we use to access them’. How far is this true of your cross media study? Support your answer with reference to a range of examples from three media platforms. The enjoyment of the media products is influenced greatly by the different platforms that we use to access them. In my case study, all three platforms have used different techniques to create hype and enjoyments of the media products in order to engage audiences. I analysed two films: Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Trek into darkness. Guardians of the Galaxy had various media platforms, which targeted different audiences. There’s the epic mainstream trailer, toys/action figures for children and even lead actor, Chris Pratt, appearing in sketches parodying the film on Saturday Night Live. This would have created enjoyment towards the audience as it would have created anticipation and he’s a well-known and popular actor, making him a unique selling point. They also targeted dominant, hegemonic fans of Marvel films such as behind the scene interviews, documentaries and even the cast attending conventions such as Comic Con. This provides fans with a social belonging, due to the fact that the casts are with the fans and it’s like a community coming together, who are a big fan of Guardians of the Galaxy. Star Trek into Darkness have used a different approach by releasing many competitions that were launched for the upcoming movie, so people who knew......

Brain Training: Should You Believe the Hype?

...“BrainTraining: Should you believe the hype?” Etchells (2016) in his article “Brain Training: should you believe the hype” talks about whether a brain training app actually works the way they sau it should. Initially he talks about neuro-plasticity is and how the idea behind game training is surrounded around the basis of neuro-plasticity. He later talks about the idea of brain training and how it has become a large business over a very short period of time. He then goes on asking whether these apps or methods actually work and improve the users skills or not, he answers with his own point of view saying that according to him these apps do not work the way they have been described to work by the developers. He further goes on to support his views by sharing some statistics from surveys conducted in different universities. However he mentions that certain apps and techniques have shown results in the age group 60+. He concludes his article by mentioning that general video games that require reflex and decision making skills seemed to have a far better effect than brain training apps, so he advises us not to waste our time and money on these apps as they are not a quick fix to making us smarter. In this essay I am going to analyze Etchells (2016) article about brain training and give my personal opinion and discuss about the points I agree and disagree with. Reading the article it is clear that Etchells(2016) target audience are students of all ages who believe that instead of...

Facebook Ipo

...Facebook is considered to be, and on track to be one of the biggest IPO offerings ever. It is going to be the biggest Internet IPO ever. This is one of the biggest and most talked about topics in the business world today. Many big time investors and even small time moms and pops have plans of investing in Facebook after all the hype and speculation that’s is being made about the IPO offering. Facebook has been said to have the potential, through this IPO offering and their publicizing of their company to make many individuals rich. Because of this public knowledge, there are many insiders that are trying to take advantage of this situation by already trading stocks as if it were already public. In comparison to many other companies that, when they go public on average have between 50 and 100 investors, Facebook already has more than 1000 shareholders apart of their company. The company is supposed to be in a quiet period and not talk to investors, or try to create more hype or to overprice their stock because of the federal rules of the SEC Policy of 1933. They are urged not to jump the gun. As an example, when Google spoke to and interviewed Playboy, they had to include that interview as apart of their final filing. The concern however, is whether or not the insiders of Facebook may be limiting the IPO by pushing their value. The CEO and founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, had initially held firm to a valuation of $100 billion, but since the company is already being......

Global Warming Is a Hype

...Climate Change is a Natural Cycle: Global Warming is a Hype Terra Nova is a new American TV series on the Fox network, which airs on Mondays and has caught the attention of a wide audience for its science fiction suspense. The show is intriguing because it relates to a huge debate going on right now amongst scientist, politicians and environmentalist; Global Warming. Is it real and if so, are humans the cause. In Terra Nova it is year 2149 and Earth is being destroyed to extinction due to air quality and overpopulation therefore, it has become impossible for humanity to survive and almost no vegetation exists. This leads humans to scramble and figure out a way to survive by trying to go back in time and not make the same mistakes. Although, Terra Nova is just a show many believe the concept is true even though there is no conclusive proof that humans are the cause of global warming. Scientist on both sides of the debate, agree that global warming exist but the argument is whether or not humans are the cause by the burning of fossil fuels and if it will destroy Earth. There are many factors that contribute to the warming of Earth, but man-made global warming is just a theory that has been hyped up because scientist cannot disprove that climate change is a natural cycle that has been happening for thousands of years. It is clear that the man-made global warming campaign has exploded and many people are benefitting from it regardless of how little scientific data there is......
