I have no comment about the audience type, but surely you know that the
people would have no need of a pen. They all have their Palm Pilots
So anyone with a clue uses a $200-$1200 piece of silicon rather than a
$12 organizer? Is paper wrong? I don't have a Palm. I'd like to, but I
can't afford the cash when my DayRunner suits me fine. But... do people
really take their Palms to the movies?
Er... need more coffee today. But seriously... I doubt the writer would
get a lot of response from a movie theater ad. I think that by the time
the audience breaks from their pre-movie conversation to notice the ad,
the frame will flip to another ad or useless movie factoid.
Just my thoughts on this rainy, cold and dark Tuesday morning in the
beautiful month of June.
