It’s that time again: Trend Watching has launched their final Trend Report of the year, “8 Important Consumer Trends for 2008.” It’s got the whole, lengthy deal again, from topics like “Brand Butlers” to “Online Oxygen” to “Status Spheres,” all of which don’t make any semblance of sense until you read what they mean. And you’ll be reading for a while because they’ve saved their longest for the end. It also might serve as a nice holiday gift buying guide, as nearly half of the report has to do with products that are at the very front of the trend wave. Go forth, dear reader, and get to reading! Now!
