Shame on QVC. They featured the iPad 2 as their Today's Special Value. If you watch the video it makes it sound as if they are selling the new iPad, not the Generation 2. Now, I'm a huge fan of QVC. I shop there...a lot. And, so watching this video and the price they are charging for the iPad 2 bundle is very disturbing to me. There is nothing wrong with selling the iPad2...but it's not the newest iPad and when they use phrases like," The screen is spectacular, that's the big wow."
Anyone who has paid attention to the old iPad vs. new iPad knows that the WOW is the screen on the new iPad. So to say that the screen is the big WOW for the iPad 2 is deceptive advertising.
They don't stop there...the hostess says, "This is the iPad 2 that everyone is looking for." Really? They're looking for the new iPad, not the iPad 2. Shame. Shame. Shame.

Why even give the perception of deception? As a shopper, I trusted QVC.I've admired their marketing and am in awe of the hosts that can talk for hours about the most mundane products.
But now, I 'm not feeling so good about QVC. If they are disingenuous about the iPad...what else are they disingenuous about?

Who are these people? Stunned. Jaw-dropping. Flabbergasted are all way too tame for the reaction I have to this article.

This is so not okay. Where do I even begin.
If you think privacy settings on your Facebook and Twitter accounts guarantee future employers or schools can't see your private posts, guess again. Employers and colleges find the treasure-trove of p...

Jeez Louise. Didn't anyone ever teach them about cost-benefit analysis? Is the cost of the very bad press worth the $60. When will they ever learn? It's absolutely mind boggling.

Do you use social media as a synonym for technology that has "accelerated communications created, distributed and connoted to millions of empowered individuals?"

And still, there are times that companies require using IE to access support.

Now the focus should be on "encouraging" radio stations to drop his show.

+Joe Carpenter You know the phrase, "Any publicity is good publicity" is meant to be sarcastic, right?

After working from a home office for over twenty years, changes in my living space motivated me to seek an outside office. I thought there would be an adjustment and a yearning for my home office.. Just the opposite. Coming to work at Assemble Shared Office is fun. It has the same affect on me that attending a group fitness class has vs working out at home.--I've discovered I work a little harder when there are people around! The design of the office is smart. Each office is all glass which means even though I have inside office, I still have an outside view. I love it. More than the physical aspect of the office, what makes this special is our community manager, Jody. Her commitment to making this the best place to office share downtown is incredible. There isn't one particular thing I can point to -- just a hundred little things that she does every day to make you feel appreciated and taken care of. There's also a lot of little things that add up to a great work space. . There's complimentary coffee, yogurt, granola, bagels, diffused water and treats. We're on the skyway . You can book the conference room without incurring additional fees. It's congenial - people stop by the office and say hi. It's pet friendly. My dog comes to the office every day.
