Reversible Products

  • Smartphone = iPhone
  • Coffee = Starbucks
  • Search = Google
  • Photograph = Instagram
  • Soda = Coke

Brands and items are fungible. One can be used for the other and people will know what you’re talking about.

Just don’t be upset when they hand you a Galaxy, Peet’s, Bing, Flickr, or a Pepsi. That’s probably a sign that the brand has lost its mojo.
