  7. Playing devil's advocate here, this had potential. If they had done the ad on a computer screen or ebook reader, it could have been a demonstration of how easy it is to access, read and customize ebooks, thus putting them ahead of print books in possibilities.

    Too bad. I see it as a missed opportunity more than a train wreck.

    Well, considering the web address has a .tk in it...this is clearly not an English-speaking person who put this together. My first guess would be scam followed by possible spam site.

  9. I just read a thing on Yahoo news about .tk being one of the top two domains for spam/virus/scammer sites. I haven't gone to that site and wouldn't recommend anyone else do so either. Can't be too safe these days.

  10. I think my favorite part was when it said that ebooks are "printer fiendly." :)

  11. Okay, if you're eight and this was your first attempt at Utube for your project marketing presentation, sure, its great. If you are 35 and looking for cute, they missed the mark. Oh well. I got a little sea sick watching it. Woman overboard!

    Mind you, did it work?
