There is a place where the people of planet Earth were profoundly grateful for Windows Vista. A place where the iPhone’s Safari eliminated the need for native third-party apps. One where Palm’s Foleo made history, Circuit City fired its way to success, and both eBay’s acquisition of Skype and the AOL Time Warner merger ranked among the most brilliant corporate decisions in history.
That place would be the land of press releases, where everyone and everything’s a winner. I’ve dug out a bunch of vintage releases and annotated them with tidbits about just what happened after the news hit the, um, fan.
