Quote(s) of the day

QOTD comes from a nostalgic NYTimes piece on the history of carphones.

Apparently the early advertising strategy was simple - SEXISM, SPORTSCARS AND MERGERS.

"If your secretary has a hard time keeping up with you now, wait until she hears about this." 



And this gem:



In addition to sexism, the suitcase-phone sellers like Radio Shack used massive nerds and "merger-mania" to sell their wares, complete with teenagers talking about insider trading!  Sweet!
