From Breakfast Burritos to Breakfast Phones

From Breakfast Burritos to Breakfast Phones | Unplug | Scoop.it
Taco Bell is going old school for its breakfast launch with a program disseminating feature phones to hard-core fans.
Susan Taylor's insight:

Using a "Mission Impossible" type process, Taco Bell is mailing out 1,000 Samsung T4046 phones to fans and influencers.  People who receive these "Breakfast Phones" complete various missions to win prizes like a free Taco Bell breakfast for one year.


This is your mission, if you choose to accept it.  Good Luck!

Digital Detox Holidays -- The Latest Trend?

Digital Detox Holidays -- The Latest Trend? | Unplug | Scoop.it
Digital detox holidays are the latest trend for technology addicts, and hotels are even offering discounts as incentives.
Susan Taylor's insight:

We saw it in Huffington Post this year -- Arianna committing to a digitally detoxed holiday.  We read about it in the New York Times and the Wall Stree Journal.  We see blogs and articles on occasion, suggesting there is a necessity to take vacations off the grid.  Are digital detox holidays the latest trend?

 

According to Rachel Quigley, yes.  So "if you are one of those people who feel naked without your smartphone, it's time to listen up."

 

All around the world, hotels are beginning to see an increased number of people seeking a repreive from busy, technology-filled lives.  So much so that incentives and discounts are being offered.  Travellers need to commit to leave all digital devices at home or check them in at the front desk for the duration of their stay.  Upon doing so, vacationers "are rewarded with extra amenities, freebies or discounts of up to 20 percent". 

 

So as you consider your next vacation, will you choose an unplugged holiday?
