Greetings FWD readers!

Whilst we all decide what tonight’s entertainment holds (it’s presumably a toss-up between witnessing the wonder of a solar eclipse or an already leaked episode of GoT), you can bask in the glory of the latest curated digital news.



  • An interesting report on the UK growth of the beauty market and how ‘Make Up’ searches are up 300%
  • It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas; how Seasonal Shopping starts this Friday!
  • How Formula One attempts to tap into a new, younger audience



  • Facebook for the face? What Facebook’s patents tell us about their glasses product
  • How Amazon have slowly built a vast collection of secret brands
  • Microsoft’s speech recognition software is statistically on a par with ours

If you see anything FWD worthy in the week ahead, please share using #OMDFWD.
