I'm pleased to announce that I have personally, and rather gently, stimulated your economy. Oh yeah....
It all started when I wrote my previous blog about buying an HDTV. A day or so later a friend of mine Facebooked me to say that her husband wanted an HDTV but that she thought it was too expensive.
And yes, I just used Facebook as a verb.
"Too expensive?" I replied. "Well yes they're expensive - but your husband will be eternally in your debt. Isn't that worth dropping a few grand?"
It's hard to argue with logic like that. And wouldn't you know it, but I recently found out that the couple in question bought a 50" HDTV.
Economy: stimulated. You're welcome, America.
