Today's Question of the Day: "As Seen on TV" products
I was at a drug store this week when I happened to peruse the little digital/tech section it had. As one who is easily distracted by silvery tech objects, my eye caught the Silver Sonic XL personal sound amplifier: basically a hearing aid disguised as a Bluetooth earpiece.
It, of course, had the little red "As Seen on TV" label on the packaging. And it only cost 15 bucks. I figured, eh, why not? Maybe I could use it to listen in on street corner drug deals or something. Clearly, I was not thinking rationally when I decided I had to have it.
The truth: it's a little glitchy. Plus, I've always felt silly wearing something like this on my ear.
That said, my experience here got me thinking about what would turn into today's question of the day: Have you ever bought an "As Seen on TV" product or electronic gadget? If so, which one? And what was your experience with it?
