Well, if we're going to be editors, "media" is the plural form of "medium" and would, therefore require a verb in the third person plural. Your digital media have never looked so good.

Take it up with the marketing department. :)

Although if "Digital Media" is implicitly taken as a collection of digital medium, then "has" would be correct eg "Your flock of sheep has never looked so good".

// runs off to double check with a grammar book. ;)

A collective singular noun, e.g. "group" or "flock", takes a singular verb. If you wish to refer to both your flock and my flock, then you would correctly say "the two flocks of sheep have never looked so good." One flock or one group takes a singular verb.

"Your digital media have never looked so good"

Nobody would say it this way!
Just take out the has/have to say:
"Your digital media never looked so good"...thats how almost everyone *would* say it. JMHO :)

Maybe we should put it back to "You Digital Media Has Never Looked So Good". At least then we could all agree is was wrong. :mrgreen:

How about changing it to "All your digital media are belong to us"?
