Gravity Defyer Fact or Fiction?

January 22, 2007

The Gravity Defyer Shoes by Alexander Innovation Wizard are a hot item. They were a huge hit when debuted at the 2007 CES. Yes, shoes made their debut at the largest consumer electronics show. A crazy idea, but it actually makes sense, given the amount of time people spend on their feet.

See what people said about the shoes at the CES as well as what other bloggers and reporters have to say:

Gadget Universe – Gravity Defyer Shoes

Stolen from Jared Tracy blog.

I was skeptical when months ago these shoes showed up at a project meeting and the CEO was enthusiastic about them. I did not see how the shoes fit into our product lines but started to see the benefit and WOW factor. Well it has been like six months later and I actually do own a pair which I regularly wear. The excitement at the CES 2007 really surprised me and made me believe further that this is a great product. Pretty much anyone who wears them likes them I have not yet seen a hater among us yet.

Gadget Universe Got Videos

January 16, 2007


I just think it’s so cool having these little product videos on gadgetuniverse.com. It gives it a better prospective of the product since you cannot really touch it yourself. Besides that it gives the website an entertainment factor which should keep people tuning in. I hope we can get all our products a short clip. This s a great idea in marketing so far I haven’t seen companies using YouTube video to promote there products.

Guts or Balls

January 10, 2007

We’ve all heard about people having guts or balls. But do you really know the difference between them?

In an effort to keep you informed, the definition for each is listed below…

GUTS – is arriving home late after a night out with the guys, being met by your wife with a broom, and having the guts to ask:

“Are you still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?”

BALLS – is coming home late after a night out with the guys, smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the butt and having the balls to say:

“You’re next.”

This should clear up any confusion on the definitions.

Medically speaking, there is no difference in the outcome since both ultimately result in death.

Don’t Get Married

January 8, 2007

Two married friends are out drinking one night, when one turns to the other and says, “You know I don’t know what else to do. Whenever I go home after we’ve been out drinking, I turn the headlights off before I get to the driveway. I shut off the engine and coast into the garage. Take my shoes off before I go into the house, I sneak up the stairs, get undressed in the bathroom, stick my foot in the toilet and pee down my leg to prevent splashing sounds. I ease into bed and my wife STILL wakes up and yells at me for staying out so late.” His friend looks at him and says, “Well, you’re obviously taking the wrong approach. I screech into the driveway, slam the door, storm up the steps, pee hard into the toilet water, then use the full flush, throw my shoes in the closet, undress in the bedroom, then jump into bed, slap her on the ass and say ‘WHO’S HORNY????!!!’ and she acts like she’s sound asleep! Works every time!”
