i guess i'm not young enough to appreciate that. either that or it was truly horrible and condescending. not sure.
i'd have been more impressed with a demo showing you can check what's on, set a dvr recording, check email, check an auction on ebay, start a movie on netflix, then switch to streaming pandora. in 30 seconds or less.
better yet, illustrate that the random store browser can do all that before the salesman even comes over to ask if he needs a demonstration.
because that's the point, right? you DON'T NEED a demo because it's SO SIMPLE?
