Re: Scam PC optimization software that advertised on TV
said by ipv6huh:Old people have computers. Old people have money. Old people might see other old people buying the product and think it's ok. If you were 70, would you buy a product that a 16 year old kid is using on TV? Probably not.
Serious question - do the ad agencies come to the retirement home or the park looking for old people to say nice stuff? Do they pay in real $$ or do they offer a free lunch, maybe just someone to talk to for a few hours?? Or is there some real "market research" to suggest that I'm more willing to use a computer product if an old person recommends it?
I don't understand the logic - please don't accuse me of ageism - I would really like to understand why anyone would think this was a good idea.

They'd see that slop and be making a rageface meme out of it to post somewhere within seconds.
