09. A slice of American apple pie

dscn1410ghm-copypbHave you ever been bored enough to spend a whole evening baking apple pies? That’s exactly what happened to my friends today, while I was searching the web surrounded by apples, baking flour, and noisy people. While searching for the best nanny’s apple pie recipe, I bumped into something totally different but yet so similar once you pronounce it: Apple.

I then decided to search the web about the Apple Co. and write my new post on that topic. All that, while I was still enclosed in a small kitchen with many apples. And then boom! A blog named blorge was talking about something really interesting.

Did you know which are the fastest companies today? Team Obama, Google, Hulu, and Apple are the four fastest developed companies in the whole world.

How many assumptions can you make from this post! Firstly, it becomes obvious that Obama is a brand name and his team is a corporation. Secondly is it a coincidence that these rapidly developed companies are interlinked together? And last did you notice that all these brands are web based?

Obama is the best known example of one’s reputation booming through the internet. Apple and Google are the most popular and trustworthy companies in the world within the web users. And last, Hulu is a free online video service, currently offered only to users in the United States. But how are these brands are interlinked? Let me give you an example… Apple created a full-head 3d character that you can download for your desktop and you can have him change his facial expressions according to your daily mood swings. Also, searching for Obama at Hulu you come up with hundred video results.

I am not sure what would this partnership’s consequences be to Obama’s forthcoming policies, but certainly these are all vital ingredients for some good ‘American apple pie’. And good American apple pie is a giant leap towards fulfilling the American dream!

    Apple pie:

    750 g thinly sliced apples
    150 g white sugar
    15 g butter
    2 g ground cinnamon
    1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie

    Prepare your pastry for a two crust pie. Wipe, quarter, core, peel, and slice apples; measure to 6 cups.

    Combine sugar and cinnamon. The amount of sugar used depends on how tart your apples are.

    Arrange apples in layers in pastry lined pie plate. Sprinkle each layer with sugar and cinnamon. Dot top layer with small pieces of butter or margarine. Cover with top crust.

    Place on lowest rack in oven preheated to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 30 to 35 minutes longer. Serve warm or cold.

    Obama’s brand is as important as his politics.

    Through cultivating his brand, he was able to combat widespread political apathy in America and engage people about the issues he was raising.

    He’s new, different and attractive: everything you need in a brand.

  4. My good friend Kostas informed me that Obama gave the Queen his iPod. Obama and Apples, again.

    I think he’s becoming the first iPresident, ever

  5. That’s right ! My friend Costas told me so. That’s a great verifation that our thought’s are not false. The Obama brand is reality.
