Clear Coke was released yesterday. I managed to get a bottle.
It certainly wasn’t as bad as I expected. It’s got a bit of lemon and really does taster like coke, which if you like, that’s a good thing.
It is also 0 calorie, which means if you don’t like the aftertaste of diet drinks, which is my big turn off, you won’t drink it twice.
If you like diet drinks, this is probably a big step up.
There have been a couple of velocipodcasts that have hit the theme of companies sabotaging each other. None so spitefully as Coke coming out with Clear Tab in order to sabotage Crystal Pepsi way back in the 90’s.
The world doesn’t stop moving and when you run out of ideas you go back to the well of crap you created and say “Sure, let’s try it for realsies this time.”
The result: Clear Coke, coming soon. No color, basically the same taste as regular coke, but with a touch of lemon.
It’s Pepsi’s chance for revenge, except they’ve come out with so many shit drinks I don’t think it would have an impact.
You want to charge about $20 for your VR headset, but you know your customers don’t want to be seen as the kind of people who only spend about $20 on a VR headset, what do you do?
You print “High Cost VR Headset” right on the damn thing and stop people from getting all up in your face.
