Things that make you go hmm, hmm, hmm

First spotted on Lance Armstrong during this years Tour de France bike race, Oakley have now launched their MP3 headphones on their website. Oakley Thumpers come it at a spendy spendy 495USD for a 256MB MP3 player, earphones and glasses. You can read the specification and full details here (Windoze users need Acrobat from those nice people at Adobe Software, Mac OSX users can use Preview, but I would recommend using Acrobat for ease of use).

Hot Gossip

There's an unconfirmed rumour going around that alleges Netflix have recruited three PR / mar.coms people to prepare for an imminent UK launch. Netflix are famous for shaking up the DVD industry by pioneering online DVD rental and returns via post. If the allegation proves to be true, then Blockbuster and all the Netflix wannabies already in the UK market are due for for a huge can of whoopass to be let loose on them. According to coverage of the Video Island / ScreenSelect merger last month Netflix had indicated an intention to move into the UK marketplace. Note to the Netflix peepz, if you need a good PR agency mail me, the same kind of initiative that sniffed out this rumour could be put to good use raising the profile of your business in the UK.
