They discussed Wowowow.com’s coverage of “Mad Men” before the AMC drama’s third season starts Sunday, including Wowowow.com founder and advertising vet Mary Wells‘ take on the show and the industry over the years, “The Truth About ‘Mad Men’ Told by a Real-Life ‘Mad’ Woman.”
Other topics of coverage on the women-centric Web site discussed on the podcast includes training men to be stay at home husbands and ongoing coverage of the Amazon Kindle. Randi said that one downside of the Kindle is that the books must be purchased through Amazon, leading Jason to suggest that Apple might unveil a new tablet device at its upcoming keynote presentation that might rival the Kindle.
“The one thing that Apple has going against it, recently you might have seen that they have blocked the use of Internet phone services from iPhone devices, which would essentially put AT&T out of business if everyone completely assimilated and moved over to these voice over IP devices,” Matt said. “But all in all I think that Apple will probably set a new standard.”
“There is a chance that we could see the Amazon Kindle as the Commodore 64 of digital readers,” Jason said. “Our kids will be like ‘Haha, you used to read on one of those?’”
