Did NOT take the extra time

I get daily emails from a discount online luxury retailer. (And one time, I actually bought something!) Anyhow, a few weeks ago, this picture appeared with one of their sales. Please notice how the type around the lens on the left camera is backwards. The art director thought it would look better if the cameras were facing each other. Unfortunately, that’s not how those cameras are made.

I was maybe one of a thousand who noticed the mistake. Was it a big deal? No. But I submit that it was a choice that should not have been made. And there are always some out there (like me) who care about details.

  1. Sharp eyes. A couple of years ago, my mother-in-law was ready to purchase a new computer. Though my father-in-law had been dead for 7 years at the time, he had been contemptuous of Macs — Windows-only for him. Well, my m-in-law was determined to get a Windows computer. About that time, there was a Dell ad brochure in the Sunday Parade magazine. It featured a picture of a mother and daughter using a shiny, silver-coloured laptop — it was an airbrushed Titanium Powerbook!! Not sure if it was a Dellintosh or a Macindell. I scanned the ad — it should be viewable with this link: http://flickr.com/gp/boballen/V1tb03
