The #iconic #BacktotheFuture date is just over a month away and to celebrate this #momentous #occasion, we’ve seen an array of memorabilia, collaborations and a working #hoverboard. The latest installment released is this #exclusive #documentary, Back in Time, which looks at how the trilogy came to be and how it’s affected its fans since. Featuring exclusive interviews with cast and crew, including #StephenSpielberg and #MichaelJ.Fox, we discover how the franchise has become a cultural touchstone with a resonance that has lasted 30 years after #Marty went back in time. The documentary is set to hit theaters on October 21.

#Facebook’s Security Chief Says Adobe Flash Must Die

Facebook’s head of #security is the latest to join the chorus calling for the death of #Adobe #Flash.

In a pair of tweets over the weekend, Facebook chief security officer Alex Stamos called for Adobe to pick a date to end support for Flash and for web browser makers to drop support the same day.

Stamos’ comments followed the revelation of two previously undiscovered security vulnerabilities in Flash as part of a leak of security company The Hacking Team’s internal data. But calls for the end of Flash date back much further. Steve Jobs famously penned a diatribe against the platform in 2010 following Apple’s controversial decision not to support Flash on the iPad. Since those days, many sites, such as YouTube, have shifted away from Flash and towards HTML5 and JavaScript-based solutions.

Facebook still requires Flash to play videos on some browsers, but Stamos indicated on Twitter that the company is working to make HTML5 video available to all users.

#Google Is Taking a Big Step to Kill Off #Flash for Good

STARTING TOMORROW, GOOGLE’S #Chrome #browser will automatically pause #web #ads that use Flash.

That means that #videos and #animations in ads using #Adobe’s Flash technology will no longer autoplay in the world’s most-used browser. Ads using #HTML5, on the other hand, will continue to work.

The decision, first revealed in June on Google+, is the latest nail in Flash’s coffin, which is great news for the web: #Flash is a bloated, insecure battery hog, and it deserves to die.

Fortunately, Google doesn’t appear to be the only organization that feels that way. Last month, Mozilla blocked Flash from running on its Firefox browser until Adobe released a new version that fixed some particularly egregious security problems that were revealed in a leak of security company Hacking Team’s internal documents. Facebook’s chief security officer Alex Stamos also recently called on browser makers to stop supporting Flash altogether. In anticipation of that development, Facebook has slowly been replacing its own videos with HTML5-based alternatives.

#Advertisers have been the big pro-Flash holdouts, but #Amazon has said that it will no longer accept Flash advertisement on its network of sites. Google’s move to pause Flash ads is even bigger; it could be just the push the industry needs to finally move on to better technologies.

#McFlop  on the #McWhopper   #McDonalds  says no #Imademyown  

September 21st, , it’s coming up, but prior to yesterday did you know the date? Neither did I, but yesterday after  executed what could arguably be the most brilliant piece of marketing, I will never forget International Peace Day, in larger part thanks to a Miami based burger chain. With full page ads in both The , along with , in addition to a website and video dedicated to their pitch; Burger King suggested they combine their best seller along with  for one day only. 

Dubbed the  two iconic brands would pair to raise  for the International Peace Day , something I think we can all agree is a great cause to jump behind and support. I’m pretty conscious of what I eat, and even though this burger would be only available in Atlanta (which was deemed to be the midway point between both brands HQ’s) I all of a sudden found myself wanting this proposed “#Frankenburger” of sorts, to support the cause and classy gesture. 

It actually kinda reminded me of how kids in high school would try and go over the top in some cutesy, elaborate-over-the-top fashion to ask their prom date that would be unforgettable and hard to say no to. Well that’s just what McDonalds did, rather than Ronald their clown issuing the turn down, another clown did, Steve Easterbrook. Rather than issuing a counter offer, or another suggestion even, what Mr. Easterbook did was give a  like vague response in which no alternative or solution was offered, but this was not going to happen, that much was clear. Well Mr. Easterbrook you can rain on the parade, you can show that your company doesn’t get millennials, or how to turn your sinking brand around, but you will not be taking this away from. I went ahead and made my own  today.

 

I also made a donation to International Peace Day, and came to a few conclusions. 

1. The Big Mac is pretty much tasteless. I have never tried a side-by-side comparison but, now that I have, I’m writing off McDonald’s forever. 
2. I also think now that BK Lounge has brought back chicken fries, that Steve Easterbrook’s company is in even bigger trouble, well beyond the 3000 some negative comments written underneath their response on their own Facebook wall. 
3. All Burger King needs to do now is bring back Kid Vid and the Kids Club, and I think the momentum is unstoppable. Ok maybe not, but remember those commercials McDonalds used to do? In a McWorld where they used to say, “Hey it could happen?” well if you don’t remember it, that’s ok cause neither does Steve, because it can’t happen according to him.

So yesterday #BurgerKing did something awesome and proposed to #McDonald 's the #McWhopper .

The goal? To operate one restaurant for one day staffed by employees of both companies and selling a #burger called the #McWhopper , a blend of the #Big Mac and the #Whopper , the best-selling burgers at McDonald’s and Burger King.

Sales proceeds would be #donated to #PeaceOneDay , a #nonprofit group seeking to #raise #awareness of the #InternationalDayofPeace which was established by the #UnitedNations General Assembly in 1981 for the opening of its annual meeting.

Since #SteveEasterbrook said no, and McScrewed up with a terrible response much like they do with most orders and business strategies. I wanted to do something. So I #donated to Peace One Day on my own. Its not much, but its cool BK came up with the idea to raise #awareness and now I know about 9/21.  Here is the link if anyone else would like to do the same.

#Brilliant   #CauseMarketing   #Peace   #PeaceDay   #mcdonalds   #Burgerking

One of the most notorious feuds in the history of pop culture could finally be coming to an end. Burger King has proposed to McDonald’s for the two fast food giants to collaborate on “The McWhopper” for the International Day of Peace, September 21. Taking out full-page ads in both The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune, Burger King even created a dedicated website outlining their full proposal. It states that for one day only the McWhopper would be available at a specially built pop-up restaurant in Atlanta – which is the middle point between McDonald’s’ Chicago headquarters and Burger King’s Miami HQ.

Whether McDonald’s are up to the challenge or if this reveals itself to be a great marketing campaign, we will soon find out. In the meantime check out how Burger King proposes “The McWhopper” should work in the video below.
