I hate over subtle marketing...
I get lots of funny stuff through the post. Don't get me wrong - it's not junk mail (even my cat got offers to take out an Amex card) or porn. It's marketing gimmicks. Little freebies that are used to get you to phone for a demo or talk to a sales rep. Subtle, pernicious stuff some of it. Thinly veiled bribes masquerading as executive toys. Usually they go straight in the bin (OK, I kept the Easylink Smarties dispensor and Reuter's juggling balls). Today I got a black tennis ball sent to me in a small black cylindrical tube. Why? God knows? It's too subtle or I'm too dense. (Don't answer that).
