  • Never Had a Budweiser?

    Worldwide business confidence slumped to a five-year low, with company hiring and investment intentions at or near their weakest levels in the post-global financial crisis era. The number of companies expecting their business activity to be higher in a years' time exceeded those expecting a decline by 28%. This was below the net balance of 39% recorded in the summer, the Markit Global Business Outlook Survey showed. (CNBC)

    In the wake of 10 Barrel Brewing selling to Anheuser-Busch InBev, we find some 44% of 21- to 27-year-old drinkers today have never tried Budweiser, according to the company. After years of developing advertising and marketing that appeals to all ages, AB InBev plans to concentrate future Budweiser promotions exclusively on that age bracket. (Wall Street Journal)

    The amount of data generated in two days is as much as all data generated in human history before 2003. In 1985 it cost $100,000 to store a gigabyte of data.  It costs 5 cents today.

  • Seahawks Prep For 49ers

    (Renton, WA)  --  The Seattle Seahawks defense now leads the NFL in the category of yards allowed.  The Hawks will need to rely on that defense Thanksgiving night, when they take on Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers.  Head coach Pete  Carroll says Seattle came out injury-free from the win Sunday over the Arizona Cardinals, except for a sprained ankle suffered by tight end Cooper Helfet.  Kickoff Thursday in Santa Clara is set for 5:30 p.m.
