To paraphrase Samuel Johnson:

TV watch designs are both good and original; but the designs that are good are not original, and the ones that are original are not good.

I actually just heard back from Hamilton; I couldn't be more shocked (or pleased). So we'll see where this could possibly lead.

In any event, I'm sure there's gonna be a lot of marked down to $14 Chinese-made triangular watches cropping up on gray sites, oh, any moment now.

Serves 'em right.


Yeah - most people don't like to find out they've been ripped off. Good job.

I'm noticing this particular SO model is now listed as "clearance" on the SNBC website.

Makes it easy to wonder if it might soon not be around at Amazon as well.

Just because, you know, it's so popular. Yeah, it's goin' like hotcakes, I'd reckon. Also: Temple's amazing spiel on the video on the ShopNBC website now starts at about the movie reference; can't say it's been scrubbed, it's just been cut entirely.

Mort, you might be right - but frankly, they could sell that thing for a quarter and I'd still be up in arms. At least there's been an acknowledgement of the cheesy model by the company that's been copped from.

Yep - by both SO and a certain lying valor thief who somehow forgot to mention he actually owned the watch in question. There are fools of the moment, and then there are de-pantsed, crying, lying, humbled for life complete fools.
