Wikipedia and Nick Burns tell us that user error implies “issues caused are the fault of the user. The device is neither flawed nor poorly designed—the user does not understand how to make it work properly.”
Then I got this email from Bacon’s. Their attempt to make a quick buck instead makes public relations look bad. And it makes me wonder why I bother defending them.
From online video sites like YouTube and iFilm, online sources like Yahoo and Squidoo to mainstream media like CBS and USA Today as well as trade media like Advertising Age—there are scads of ways to track and watch the Super Bowl ads before, during and after the game.
And since the ads sucked on ice, this year, that WAS the story. “Superbowl XLI marked the first time that every spot featured during the advertising event of the year was immediately available online on a wide variety of sites for viewing and scrutiny by users."
So riddle me this. Why in the hell would I pay $495 to get them all on a DVD?
If you're listing the ability to ship FedEx as a benefit, that’s a hint your product is not all that. Sorry Bacon’s. This is a lame revenue generator that shows how old school you are. It comes off as clueless spam.
