Quick roundup of 5 great stories plucked fresh from the internet this week.
1. The PUMA Index: iPhone App [youtube width=”540” height=”330”]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtNLpKPL6Eo[/youtube]
Clever, as the markets take a hit - the models start striping.
2. Waldorf Barbers boasting YouTube success
Noticed that outside the Waldorf barbers (Dublin 2) a placard boasting about being Ireland’s most famous barber on YouTube (or something to that effect). Nearly 70,000 video views which is probably more than any other barber in Ireland. They’re also going to get some coverage in the Sunday Times.

Watching someone getting a proper shave in there is mesmorising, are they venturing into Social Media?, their website is a bit pants, but I spied something on boards.ie (now removed) about looking for some haircut guinea pigs - possibly doing some more video?
3. Successful Website Day 1: Planning
Great guide on Simplweb, worth going over even if you’re not creating a new website.
4. Orgasm for your feet
Ad from Bianco footwear, love it.

5. Interflora v M&S AdWords trademark row
Keep an eye on this one, as it will surely have implications on brand bidding in AdWords.
