What’s in a name? 2.0

Two days ago I posted about the bizarre yet successful IHOP name change. Today we’re going to the baseball diamond to explore one of the obscure trends finding its way to minor league ballparks across the country: one day name changes.

(I will admit, minor league baseball is a fascination of mine, which may or may not come back into play later on in this blog)

What’s in a name?

Ok, let’s all be honest, we all thought it was awfully weird that one of the world’s most popular breakfast joints, IHOP, suddenly and drastically changed their name to IHOb. But was it actually the marketing ploy of the year? Possibly. Should we expect the change to be long-term? Probably not.

Competition is good…

Actually tried to play the DVD from Lion King 1 1/2 this weekend, and couldn’t get it done because it was scratched beyond the player’s ability to read it.  No options that we found to rent a stream of it, so this would fit the bill.  I am not going to answer whether my wife and I, or my kids, are over the age typically associated with Disney Animated Movies :)

I wish this option, or the Netflix option were available this weekend.

HP is discontinuing c6168a, more info to come

HP has announced that they are discontinuing production of the HP C6168A red cartridge.  Our supplies will become very limited by the end of this month (April), so if you need to place an order, we would recommend getting that to us sooner, rather than later.

We will have more information on recommended replacements in the upcoming days.
