Well now I want one!

November 21st, 2006 at 09:45 pm

I recieved an email about a nifty cool new Widget today. Seeing as how I am not going anywhere, I actually read it. The gadget is shiny, it does all sorts of tricks,and folds up into a little pouch! It even comes in cool customizable covers! Now that I know all about it, I want one Smile

Which is the thing about advertising, rarely do we wander out hunting for a widget without having heard how wonderful the widget is, and of course how it will make our lives easier, or save us money, the big huge pull (if we are all saving so much using there products how come we are still in debt?) Very few go in search of a widget without knowing if one exists. should such a rarity occur, we would invent it, make a nifty infomercial, and try to convince everyone else they need it!

And that is the prime reason I do NOT like TV, radio, and exploring the internet for the latest gadget, it only makes me want something, the last thing a girl with no willpower needs is a new want!

(now about that widget...I may put it on my christmas wish list Smile.)

    One of the really nice things about not getting cable anymore is my kids stopped asking for stuff. They used to have major gimmees, but that's a thing of the past. I hardly notice advertising elsewhere, but TV was a huge one.

    Price--I have the Ronco rotisserie and the pasta/sausage maker. But I use them all the time. I watched the infomercials a good 20 times each before I made those decision, though.
