Big on Yellow

As everyone knows by now, we're pretty big on Yellow.

In fact, we're so crazy about Yellow that we've arranged a massive public flower show with Yellow flowers everywhere in California!

Okay, I made up the part of us arranging it, but we really do have beautiful wild flowers here in California this time of year & it just so happens that a lot of them are Yellow.

Just look at these pictures, aren't they amazing?



While it is true that we really love Yellow, you might not know that you can make your Classification Headings any color you want & even apply it to only a certain set of headings. Take a look at his:

Isn't that a pretty sight! Yellow and Green, just like the flowers! To learn more about how to do this, simply log in to the TSR System on the Yellow Magic site, click the "Visual Cookbooks" link, scroll down to "Custom Colors for Headings" and enjoy the show! We'll show you step-by-step how to do it.

To inspire you even more to get creative with wonderful multi-colored headings, here are some more desert wildflower pictures, enjoy! Photos from:

Phonebook Bulletproofing

If you've ever wondered if Phonebooks could be used to bulletproof your car, I might just have the answer you've been waiting for.

At the recent ADP Annual Convention and Partners Trade Show, we spoke to a lot of Directory Publishers that told us just how many Yellow Pages and Phonebooks their sales reps carry around on a daily basis. Now, we're not sure if they're trying to bulletproof their cars for some or other reason or whether it is purely for business reasons, we just think there must be a better way.

The "MythBusters" team from, famous for "busting myths" of all sorts, did an experiment to see if it is true that you can bulletproof your car by sticking Phonebooks in the doors - In all, it took 400 Phonebooks to completely cover the car & make it virtually impervious to all but the most high-powered rifles.

We're not sure if a lot of reps carry 400 Phonebooks in their car every day, but I've seen the trunks & back seats of a couple of Yellow Pages reps and for some it might not be that far off...

There is a better way though, you might even want to call it a "silver bullet", go take a look at our iPad solution for Yellow Pages, Phonebooks & Sales Reps at and .

We cannot guarantee that it will bulletproof your reps' cars, but it's a lot easier to carry around!
