On the sixth day of Christmas

On the sixth day of Christmas

"On the sixth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me,
A range of homepage designs,
2014's web design extinctions,
2013's most talked about Facebook Topics,
An ode on Christmas adverts,
A cap on children's spending,
And a Christmas card of a celebrity family"

On Saturday my family was on the net
Steph, “here’s something you won’t forget”
IBM, HP and Apple were on the screen
It was like jumping in an IT time machine.

With IBM, considering the homepage alone
I couldn’t help noticing that it looked overgrown
Banners full of stats and Business quotes
Surely no one likes it when a company gloats.

Hewlett Packard’s ‘home’ was a little less cluttered
Yet the promo slogans weren’t inspiringly uttered
In terms of Christmas, some snowflakes were there
Yet the promotions seemed half hearted, to be fair.

The Apple site’s homepage, so white, so pure
Confident, understated, fresher for sure
A tribute to Mandela, adorned in Black and White
Showing the power of their brand, no product in sight!

Over and Out
