Monday Morning Musings

It was an exciting weekend here in Seattle and around the (virtual) globe. Between the Seahawks win at home against Dallas, chart-topping iPhone 5 orders and some of the best online live-streaming we’ve seen, these stories have us talking around the office today.

Our top three links for this Monday morning:

Two million people from over 100 countries watched fashion retailer Topshop’s Spring/Summer 2012 broadcast from London’s Fashion Week. Not only could viewers watch the 10-15 minute fashion show, but they could click on clothes and accessories as the models walked the catwalk. Topshop estimates that “well over” 200 million people were exposed to images from the fashion show in the first three hours after it began. Now that is impressive.

Apple: iPhone 5 orders topped 2M in 24 hours
Have you ordered the iPhone 5 yet? Two million is more than double what the iPhone 4S raked in within the first 24 hours. The iPhone 5 is Apple’s first major revision to the iPhone since its introduction in 2007. It will be available at Apple’s 356 U.S. stores starting Friday. That is, if there are any left.

Seahawks show the world the team it can and wants to be
We Seattleites have a pep in our step this morning thinking about the Seahawks 27-7 win at home against Dallas. Steve Kelley of the Seattle Times said the Seahawks “practically pitched a perfect game…” Let’s hope there’s more where that came from!

And honorable mention to the current Seattle weather: thanks for making our Monday!
