I get a lot of email from public relations and marketing folks, hoping for a mention. Here’s my favourite recent product pitch (from several weeks ago) for “the world’s biggest LED TV.”
How big is BIG? The Sharp 90” is almost the exact size of an Olympic-sized regulation ping pong table – though we must advise you to refrain from using paddles on this beauty.
With Sharp’s family of big screens, not only will you win in the style category, you’ll take home the gold from a technical aspect as well. Whether it’s a 60, 70, 80, or even a 90-inch screen, you’ll catch all the action, from the start of the 500m to the most extreme dives on the beach volleyball court, with a Sharp big screen.
The marketing judges hereby award the gold medal for Olympic-themed marketing to Sharp’s AQUOS big screen TVs.

"8, 9, 10 years old — old enough for… Green Machine!
A racer for guys who like a ride that’s really fast!”
We didn’t have any sidewalks or paved roads nearby when I was 8, 9, 10 years old, and my parents would not buy me a Green Machine. Now that I’m 45 years old, it’s too late.
Or is it?
If you’re rich and desperate to recapture your childhood, check out the new Green Machine from Hammacher Schlemmer.
All you need is $75,000.
This is simultaneously awesome and ridiculous — a handmade dock that naturally amplifies the sound from an iPad through an old metal Victrola horn. The designer, Matt Richmond, is now making furniture at Tovin Design.
