Sit back and enjoy the best virals from the past week…

Call Me Maybe – for Choir and Orchestra

Just when we though we were all bored of “Call Me Maybe” cover versions and the whole marketing world had moved onto “Gangham Style” videos, along comes what is probably one of the best cover versions of this year’s most talked about song!

The Wrong Way To Save The Rainforest

Feeling guilty about not getting behind good or worthy causes? Don’t worry as The Rainforest Alliance created this slick vid which shows how easy it is to help its cause, with particular emphasis on what you shouldn’t do. It creates a brilliant narrative about the things you shouldn’t do to save this ecosystem, mainly leave your job, travel to the Amazon and use your knowledge of Hollywood movies to stage a revolution.

Coca Cola is known for marketing that aims to make people “happy” all over the world.

How to Research Domain Names on the Web

Researching domain names on the web is often frustrating because all the good names that are in your mind have already been taken. There are however tools that you help you brainstorm new ideas for domain names and you may sometimes strike gold.

The IANA maintains a complete list of top-level domains (like .am for Armenia or .be for Belgium) that you may consider registering in case the usual .com and .org addresses for your domain are not available.

It’s obviously not easy for anyone to search through dozens of domain extensions manually so a tool like iWantMyName should help. With a single click, iWantMyName lets you check the availability of a domain name against most of the international domains* from one place.

Another excellent tool for researching domains is Domai.nr. Give it any word and Domai.nr will suggest some really creative domain names around that word.

For instance, if you are looking for a domain like “awesome”, Domai.nr will check the availability of generic domains (like awesome.com) as well as unconventional domains like aweso.me, aws.me, aw.sm, etc. which also make lot of sense in case the original one is not available.

You may also use characters from Arabic, Hindi and other non-Latin scripts when searching for domains on both Domai.nr and iWantMyName.

Ad brings newspapers to life


Ad brings newspapers to life

October 5th, 2010 by Lauren Fisher in Advertising

AXA have created an excellent newspaper ad, that shows the new age of advertising at its best. I’m a big fan of interactive advertising, and what happens when ads meet social and this is an excellent example of that. The video below shows the AXA ad in action, which directed the reader to place their iPhone over an empty space on the page :

Given that AXA was Belgium’s first insurance company to launch an iPhone app, it’s fitting that they would use such a unique method to announce it. This is one of the first ads of this kind that I’ve seen, where you see a real consideration of the user journey. They haven’t just added on an element to integrate with mobiles, but have actually built it into the story of the ad itself.

Belgian broadcasters try kneecapping DVRs, demand compensation

Belgians are probably most interested in knowing whether their country will survive its strife between the French and Flemish-Dutch speaking groups, or whether it will break apart into separate nations. Here at Ars, however, we’re more interested in the country’s peculiarities with respect to copyright law and broadband technology (and, of course, Belgium’s wide variety of beers and chocolate). We recently wrote about Belgian bandwidth hogs, and in the past on ISPs having to filter P2P and newspapers suing Google News. This week it’s Belgian broadcasters seeking to cripple Digital Video Recorders and get compensation for their introduction.

Ars got hold of a letter addressed to cable provider Telenet, a letter in which compensation and technical crippling of the DVR were demanded. A similar letter went to Belgacom, another cable TV provider. This letter, kindly provided to us by Inside TV International, was jointly written by the CEOs of the three Flemish broadcasters.
