Damn! They sure are pushing this obnoxious cuecat thing, aren't they? Informercials galore. I don't know about your area, but I can hardly turn on the tv anymore without seeing how "Digital Convergence" crap is going to better our lives. Now they're trying to give this cat thing away. Let me get this straight: you swipe the cat over any barcode, and it takes you straight to a commercial for what you just bought. No more need for silly content on the Web! Now the Internet can be nothing but banner ads 24 hours a day! Ooh! Sign me up! *rolls eyes*

By the way, Happy Voting Day. =)

Heh, I went and got my cuecat, fixed it's guts with a kitchen knife and pliers, scanned everything in my room and it's sat in the corner ever since.

Those ads are hilarious -- I love the way they try to make "convenience" equate to "advertising".

...because, you know, I often sit here thinking that if I could just get more advertising in my life, everything would be so much more convenient for me.

D:C is doomed. They're going down in flames, and this ad campaign is *not* going to help their bottom line.
