Now, That's Naughty!

Phil Harvey

1:45 PM -- Often incinerated. Never duplicated. It's time, once again, for another edition of The Philter Index:

The Philter Index, for May 3, 2006:

  • Real name of the PR contact for a video game, Naughty America, which purports to combine online dating and virtual sex: Wayne Teats of Gonzo Communications
  • According to a survey by Toshiba Corp. (Tokyo: 6502), published by the Japan Economic Newswire, what percentage of Japanese housewives "are aware of the need to update their equipment when terrestrial digital TV services replace the current analog broadcasts": 80 percent
  • Here is an actual quote from an email advertisement pushing a book called Marketing for Everybody: “I must appreciate the efforts you have taken to write this book on marketing, which everybody, irrespective of whether he wants to study the subject for examinations, would like to read and, therefore, I congratulate you for the same.” -- Dr. P.C. Shejwalkar, Director of Institute of Management Education
  • Actual line from a product pitch about a new service from eAgency Systems: "Handheld users do not have to wait around for Yahoo when they can sink with any internet web service now, whether that is Yahoo, MSN or even gmail."

Why soar with Yahoo when you can sink with anyone?
