Fans coming together for a football/cricket match is well heard off. But fans coming together to appeal Coke to bring back a brand they had discontinued years back is a truly inspiring one. With the help of Social Media they could come together and made Coke understand that there is a genuine demand for the brand that they had discontinued. They even went to the extend of buying out a billboard to put up their message.

Ebay buys PhiSix – Will help you virtually try clothes online

ebay PhiSix

One of the reasons why people still prefer buying clothes from the traditional brick and mortar stores is that they don’t get to try the clothes before buying. EBay will try to nullify this by providing the buyers an option to virtually try the clothes online. Ebay has bought a company called ‘PhiSix’ – which help you try clothes on virtual avatars.

Ebay wants to eventually bring this model to the offline stores so that you can try clothes without getting in to the trial rooms.

Cisco had come out with a similar idea some years back.

Now you can try clothes before picking them online.
