3D Is A Big Scam!!

Really, have any of you gone to your local electronics store and saw the real thing they’re trying to push-off as “new and innovated”, the “very latest” in viewing?  To put it mildly, it’s all HOGWASH!  It’s all hype and nothing else!  Another “fad” to separate the suckers from their hard-earned cash!  The only difference from this “new technology” and the 3D in movie theaters fifty years ago is the nerds 3D Glasses that you had to wear to “see in 3D” back then.  Wait a second!  They’ve been using those loser glasses too, haven’t they!!

So what’s the best advice I can give you about the 3D Technology craze?  Don’t fall for it.  Keep those hard-earned dollars in your pocket, you’ll be happier in the long run.  Believe me.  You still doubt me? Then maybe this will help convince you.  A blog by Jason Hiner over at “ZDNet – Between the Lines” stating the same and don’t most of us trust ZDNet when it comes to the latest electronic news?  It’s dated April 22, 2011 and his link again can be found here.  So save the cash for now, or better yet, buy some new music for yourself and then take your girl out for a nice dinner instead.  And while you’re at it, take the wife along too!!



What is with marketing and bodily functions?

After watching television for a fairly long time today I’ve arrived at this simple conclusion.  All marketing on television (at least over the air) is written by ten-year olds infatuated with normal bodily functions.  How did I come up with this conclusion?  Watch for a time and you too will draw the same conclusion.  In many of today’s advertisements and television programming, we see videos involving people either chewing with food hanging out of their open mouths, excessive crunching, slobbering, drooling, slurping, smacking, belching or plain ol’ “passing gas” (as in flatulence).  Now I realize that over the last fifty years, marketers have lowered the age bracket at which they write their shows and commercials for, but six-year olds?  At least this seems to be the only ones that lack the intelligence and would actually enjoy this garbage! 

Could it be that marketers believe this is the average intelligence of the American adult that they are writing for?  Anyone taught common manners or basic etiquette should be floored by what is being presented here as normally accepted behavior for children or adults!  I see and can now understand why more households are shutting off their televisions and connecting to Internet T.V..  After all, don’t we have enough problems getting along with each other without teaching plain bad manners to our children as being normally accepted behavior?
