Microsoft’s Scroogled campaign may finally be coming to an end

71

It appears that Microsoft is finished with the "Scroogled" ad campaign. Over the weekend, Derrick Connell — a Microsoft corporate VP, and head of the Bing Experiences team — answered a small Q&A at Yabbly and and had the following to say:

We are always evaluating and evolving our marketing campaigns. There are times when we use our marketing to highlight differences in how we see the world compared to competitors, and the Scroogled campaign is an example of this. Moving forward, we will continue to use all the right approaches and tactics when and where they make sense.

While that doesn't neccessarily say the Scroogled campaign is ending, it does sound as if they are drifting away from it. What say you? Was it an effective campaign, or one that should be abandoned to make room for fresh ideas?

Seidio Ledger Flip Case for Nexus 5

Seidio Ledger flip case for Nexus 5

Extra protection and functionality for your Nexus 5, as long as the extra bulk is worth it for you

 

I'm not sure when it happened, but there's a renewed sense of value in having a larger smartphone case that can provide more than simple coverage for the sides and back of the device. It's no longer unusual to have a flip-over folio style case for a phone (a function usually reserved for tablets), and with those screen covers also integrating slots of credit cards, IDs and business cards just like your wallet normally would.

Seidio has adapted one of its great hard plastic kickstand case designs to also include a folio-style flip cover for the front of your Nexus 5. And while the design ideas can seem a little disjointed at times on the Seidio Ledger Flip Case, it provides a different look and feel than you'll find on your standard case choices. Read along with us and see the merits of this functional Nexus 5 case.
