(1) Sandisk Sansa M240 1GB MP3 Player with FM Tuner and Voice Recorder - SDMX3-1024
Description: (click show to see it)
If Sandisk wants their Sansa MP3 players
to appeal to a more upscale clientele, they should take a lesson from
the Crates & Barrels and Pottery Barns of the world. Classy
retailers don't give their products boring, informative color names
like "Silver" or "Pink" - they use sensual euphemisms like "Wheatgrass"
and "Latte" and "Fruit Punch". You hardly know whether to dry off with
a towel or drink it.
Now, you have your choice of colors today: Pink or Silver, as you prefer. Which is cool, we guess. But wouldn't it be more cool if you could choose between two intriguing, mysterious, euphemistic color names? Sadly, it isn't enough to offer a lightweight, hassle-free MP3 player with drag-and-drop file transfer, support for MP3, WMA, and DRM WMA
and Audible files, and a built-in FM tuner. You make a nice steak,
Sandisk, but you need to sell the sizzle. With that in mind, here are
some suggestions for evocative alternatives to boring old silver and

Owls are the falcons of the night shift. Equipped with low-light
optics, an owl can easily spot a field mouse in the pitch blackness of
night from up to a mile away. Owls' wings are as silent as death, and
by that we mean the kind of death that comes upon you in your sleep,
not the kind of death that happens if you fall into a wood chipper,
which is actually pretty loud.
An owl can swivel its head
all the way around up to eight times before it gets too tight and spins
back to its starting position. Also, owls have long been regarded as
symbols of wisdom, due to their habit of wearing mortarboard caps.
Man's fascination with owls goes all the way back to ancient times (for
example that robot one in Clash of the Titans) and continued
up until last Friday, when the whole owl thing was officially declared
"over," which is too bad for this shirt. We should have run it earlier.
This shirt was designed by: Santiago Uceda, AKA Suceda.
Born on Christmas Eve in Lima, Peru, Santiago also lived in the OC back
when people called it "Orange County." Tiring of that tediously
leisurely sun-and-seaside lifestyle, he moved to a small college town
in Oregon where he remains, as far as the authorities know, to this day.
Wear this shirt: while not polluting.
Don't wear this shirt: while tending your rodent cages. You will freak those little buggers out.
This shirt tells the world: "Ask me how many licks are required to reach the center of any number of popular candy products."
We call this color: How Now Brown Owl

Come on, Pedroncelli. Fess up. Come clean. What's your game? You
expect us to believe that you're offering single-vineyard, estate-grown
Dry Creek Valley wines at this price - with no ulterior motive? Yeah,
right. We didn't just fall off the grape truck, you know.
neither did you. You've been doing this wine thing in Sonoma County
since 1927. Same family the whole time. Real successful operation. So
we know it's not a case of some mixed-up kids getting in over their
heads and needing to dump a bunch of surplus juice. You didn't get
where you are today by making dumb blunders like that. Or like selling
this high-class vino for ten bucks a bottle, before shipping.
gotta be more to this than meets the tongue. You've gotta be working
some kind of angle here. Your neighbors like Silver Oak, Ferrari
Carano, Raffanelli and Lambert Bridge get a lot more per bottle for
their award-winning Dry Creek Valley reds. Why shouldn't you, for yours? Out of
the goodness of your heart? Pour that story into somebody else's glass,
Pedroncelli. We don't believe it for a second.
look at the evidence, shall we? We've got a rich, complex 2005 Petite
Sirah, lousy with blackberry, black pepper, and chocolate flavors,
grown in a vineyard that's been turning out Petite Sirah for 60 years.
There's a 2005 Sangiovese, grown on Pedroncelli's hillside vineyards,
with a full-flavored, medium-bodied array of cherry and berry flavors.
Then there's the classic Dry Creek Valley character of your 2005 Mother
Clone Zinfandel. These grapes get their blackberry and spice aromas and
jammy fruit flavors from the 100-year-old vines they're cloned from.
And don't forget the 2005 Merlot. No, we wouldn't want to overlook its
lush, full-bodied fusion of plum and black cherry aromas and pepper and
green tea flavors. Must be the Bench Vineyards where it's grown, those
natural terraces of rocky soil that flank Dry Creek Valley.
there you have it. Four exquisite reds. Each bears the prestigious
Pedroncelli name. Each boasts a Dry Creek Valley pedigree. And you're
selling the whole bunch for under $45, shipped. Like a broken
calculator, it doesn't add up.
Now, you might try to tell us
that Jim and John Pedroncelli just aren't the money-grubbing type. You
might spin a yarn about how they're more like farmers than ritzy wine
moguls, and they'd rather sell a quality product at a reasonable price
to a loyal following. Maybe you'd even point out how they're
third-generation winemakers who aren't in it to become somebody's
trendy flavor of the month. Well, isn't that a heartwarming little
tale. But unlike your wine, nobody's gonna buy it. You're offering an
awful good deal here, Pedroncelli. Maybe a little too good. And we aim
to get to the bottom of it - just as soon as we get to the bottom of
these four bottles of Pedroncelli wine.
