“Our DNA is different than theirs,” John Skipper, ESPN’s executive vice president for content said by telephone on Tuesday. “We serve sports fans. It’s hard in our culture to fathom tape-delaying in the same way they have. I’m not suggesting it wasn’t the smart thing for them to do, but it’s not our culture. We did Euro 2008 in the afternoon. We’ve done the World Cup in the middle of the morning. We have different audiences.”

From Fashionista:
So here’s something that shouldn’t shock us, but somehow, totally did:

We were having a nice morning chat with a friend of ours that works at a Louis Vuitton boutique and she said:

“Oh god, I have to help re-tag all the items at the store tomorrow. So annoying.”

Why? Is there a sale?

“No, we’re just upping the prices.”

Why?

“We always do. Like twice a year, we up all the prices by 5%.”

Why?

“I have no idea. Because we can?”

And there you have it.
