For almost 30 years, Apple has maintained its lead in computer, consumer electronics, and innovative software. In 2008, Fortune Magazine named Apple the most admired company in the United States. Devoted Apple customers boosted sales for 2008 to over 32 billion dollars worldwide.

Business- A “Just Do It” Attitude

Nike’s marketing campaign of “Just Do It” is one of the most successful campaigns on the planet. Nike took their campaign global during the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Somewhere I picked up that attitude means At- IT-U-DO. I have made this my motto. Because it works.

Are You a Geek?

You are a Geek if you love figuring out all of the technical ends of the Internet, computers and all the latest gadgets. Well, that is certainly not me! Although I most certainly appreciate what they do.
