Exactly what I was thinking, a photo, or approximate dimensions of the product would be nice. Will my .45 fit in it?

This is the headline story for the business section? I have seen at least 6 other similiar products already on the market. Is this lady a personal friend of the reporter? She is a "retired" realtor?...most of them are nowadays. And she frequently has to call her own phone to find it?
Wow, here's an entrepreneur we should all emulate !

Amazing.

"The unisex product is available in three colors licorice, cappuccino and vanilla cream " Sun-Sentinel

-- For the guys, that means it's sold in BLACK, a shade of BROWN, and a shade of WHITE.

Also, LAUNCH is what a rocket, space shuttle, or other spacecraft does.'Introduction' of her giZmo is more appropriate.

And how is it that this made the news? I sold my greeting cards in a tony Palm Beach shop, and never sought publicity from a newspaper, magazine, or any other publication. Slow news day for Sun-Sentinel, or they just cannot find an AP story.

I think what is missing from this story is the fact that Newell's bag is now a part of Sarah Palin's collection. She donated a bag to her shortly after the media made a stink about her $150,000. I actually read this in a press release. Not sure why the reporter didn't mention it in his story.

Duh! It is against the Obama supporters journalistic ethics to mention Sarah Palin in any type of positive light.

all of you 'armchair business doctorates' are spewing your jealousy online again because it is much easier than trying to see how you can improve your lives. For one second try to envision her bank deposits every month....you're such a bunch of A Class LOSERS...I'm embarrassed to call my self anything to do with you people.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSers!

I see we have a supporter (acquaintance, neighbor, family member, fellow former realtor) here.

It is not jealousy by any stretch of the imagination. It is disdain. Anyone can dress feces up, and any fool will buy it. That does not mean that they bought something worthwhile, of quality, or of any value. It means only that they were taken. Intelligent people introduce their inventions everyday (which have far more value than an organizer), and they do not become a 'news' topic. Sun-Sentinel has their priorities skewed, but based on their lack of quality in reporting over the past few years, it comes as little surprise that something so esoteric would quality as 'news', especially in the business section.

Furthermore, I already improve my life (by reading quality news) on a daily basis. Somehow, this piece of fluff with no intrinsic value slipped in. That's five minutes of my life I can never get back again. I've returned to reading articulate material in which I actually learn something helpful for my future. The inventor's bank deposits mean absolutely nothing to me, as I don't hold high value in money. I'm not shallow, and I appreciate the finer things in life, which have absolutely nothing to do with money.
