I guess that I’m not alone in being baffled by the horrible marketing beingÂ perpetratedÂ on consumers by technology companies. (Side note: when is “tech” going to be considered simply “consumer electronics?” Are mobile phones and laptops still so cutting edge that they need to be referred to as “high technology?”)
Saturday Night Live took on the consumer puzzle known as Verizon (and the ‘guilty-by-association’ handset makers) in a very funny skit this past weekend. Just watch it and you’ll be laughing out loud.
Verizon’s marketing department, on the other hand, should be crying…and updating their resumes.
