A Cleverly Designed Device


Q: Audrey! What was on your mind before you red this question?

A: Media, technology and subliminal messages… I was on the train home earlier and I read a printed ad by Aberdeen. They presented 5 facts (trivias), the last one being an Aberdeen fact. Quite a neat idea, but if only they had gotten the previous facts right. For instance, they mentioned that a goldfish has a memory span of 3 seconds. That is NOT TRUE. 3 months would be more likely. I hope this doesn’t undermine the company’s credibility in any way. Information is very readily available through technology and media, but it doesn’t mean our brains can now be stored in a jar.

That’s what was on my mind :)

Ask me anything only with no expectations.
