Branding includes fashions. Fashions move with a demographic that gets older. Jeans, hair style, cars, web sites. The next generation insists on anything that is not mother or father. It is a psychological necessity. All world-class brand managers understand this. A simple example: Virgin Mobile. - john nesheim
