My kids are impressionable video game addicts and tech junkies, so you can imagine my dismay at the latest TV commercial from Hewlett Packard.
The spot shows college students in a classroom listening to a professor giving a science lecture.
Voice-over narration suggests that with an HP Pavillion Notebook, you can sit in class, but instead of paying attention to the teacher, listen to music or watch DVDs.
That?s good for HP, who will sell more notebooks to kids motivated to get them for this reason; not so good for the students or the parents footing the tuition bill.
Do any of you have a similar reaction to the HP commercial and its negative message? Or am I being too much of a crank here?
