Innovation: Apples, Rice and Cherries (Jimmy’s Latest Blog Entry)
Two years ago I took a few iPhones and a few iPads to China to give away as the prizes of our annual Chinese New Year Party. Giving away prizes, large and small, has always been important practice for companies in China during the Chinese New Year party. For Logic, Apple products are always the top draw.
A few days after the party I noticed one of our secretaries with an iPhone 4 in her hand. I said, “Congratulations to winning the iPhone!” She said, “Oh, it is not from the party. I bought it myself.”
I then asked, “How much do you have to pay for it?” She said, “I bought it ‘water merchandise’ (someone brought in from outside China) so it was only 6,000 RMB.” I was almost speechless. That is about $1,000 USD, which was more or less the entire monthly salary of an experienced secretary in China. (Read Jimmy’s full blog post here.)

Your brand is worth it. Give Showcase a 30-day try (it’s free!) to see for yourself.
New Website Built to Serve Important Texas Area
The folks at Briscoe Hall, in partnership with Hill Country Communications and the Local Radio Stations, approached Logic Solutions looking for an answer. They wanted a solution that would serve the local people with a variety of information while creating a tool to generate revenue for local companies placing online advertising.
The Logic Solutions team went to work and built a site on top of a .NET framework that is free to users, offering a variety of information relevant to the area including local news, sports, weather, movie listings, obituaries, classified ads and local advertisements. Revenue is generated from the online advertisements that are placed, which is administered through an Ad System Management module that was built by Logic Solutions to assist salespeople and companies interested in online advertising.
The website recently launched and has already been fully embraced by numerous local businesses. Available information is being added daily and the website is now considered the place to go when looking for any information relevant to Texas Hill Country.
