The Independent Newspaper Calls It A Day, Print-Wise

It takes plenty of skill to guide a company through turbulent times and choppy waters, and it seems that The Independent will call it a day where print production is concerned, resulting with a minimum of 75 journalists being made redundant in the process.

T-Mobile Responds To AT&T Attack Ads

If you weren’t around Friday afternoon, you may have missed a recently published newspaper advertisement where AT&T bashes T-Mobile. The ad says, “The truth about T-Mobile’s network compared to AT&T. 2x more dropped calls, 2x more failed calls, 50% slower download speeds.” It’s only been five days since that ad was published across a number of big-name newspapers and T-Mobile has just launched its own newspaper ad campaign where they fling […]
