35309045.jpgThe Medium Is The Message: Spin Magazine sees its subscription rates rise after giving away its product for free on MySpace. We have no idea how or why, but we really, really hope the nitwits who run newspapers don’t get any ideas.

35307417.jpgLess Is More: And in related news, ad agency Secret Weapon attributes its success to having only three clients at any given time. Right now the agency has two: Honda and Jack-In-The-Box. It’s a very hands-on operation. In fact, one of the agency honchos sounds suspiciously like the voice of Jack.

Breaking Up Is Easy To Do: Time Warner Inc. is splitting AOL in two. The behemoth is eliminating 100 jobs at HQ, hinted it might also spin off its cable unit and threatened to “cut costs” at New Line Cinema, too. (Sorry for the lack of art with this item. This story didn’t come with a picture of two white guys sitting next to an interesting sign.)

Borders Bonds With Ripple For Bookstore TV Network. The Mind Reels.

tvimage.jpegBorders bookstores has partnered with Ripple, a Los Angeles-based entertainment company to create an in-store television network called Borders TV for 250 of the company’s bookstores nationwide.

According to the press release:

This agreement enables Borders customers, for the first time, to enjoy the customized network of news, entertainment and topically-relevant local content available only through the Ripple network, as well as original Borders content.

You might know Ripple from such entertainment hotspots as Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Jack in the Box and Tully’s.

But this will be the first time that the network (which traffics in original content, as well as stuff from E! Entertainment, Yahoo! News and The New York Times) will broadcast their offerings from a bookstore.

A bookstore.

For anyone wondering what this will mean to people who look to books and periodicals as a means of escaping the constant din of the boob tube, look no further than this.
