This final note on the way out, back to the story we started with: AT&T and T-Mobile joining forces after Sandy. At least for a while.
We went out on Twitter and asked what mashup of corporate rivals would make your life easier. Here’s just a couple: “Taco Bell and Zipcar; “Amazon and Costco — I’d love to have the UPS guy deliver 16 gallons of gas, 36 rolls of toilet paper and a 20lb. bag of rice”; “Disney and Luca-wait, never mind“; “Jack White and Jay-Z!”
The best one, from a guy named Christopher Tawes: “Republicans and Democrats.”
Tweet us your dream mashup @marketplaceapm.
