New Home Page?
« on: November 05, 2008, 07:43:33 PM »

OK I just went to the X10.com Home page and was completely  :o.
My thoughts where. What have they done now.

Any thought from others?

Yes if you like the old style you can find a small link to the more familiar style.

There is a new "Scratch and Dent Sale" Tab.

Well I went back to the site and the drop down windows work now.  :)% The scratch and dent sale is nice



But I'm pretty sure if my wife walked in on me shopping that site she would get a little mad.  I like looking at nice woman but that is getting crazy just to sell automation stuff. Would like to see if that helps their sales or just their web site hits.

Yes, I agree.
Somebody (as in wife or kid) causally glancing at the screen would think it was a porno site. none of the trollups equate to the products being sold. I just don't understand a sales connection between a bikini bimbo who contains more silicone than a CM15A, and remote controls or security or home automation. 

My theory is; the X10 Marketing Director is 17 years old and probably still in high school.

Well it's a well known fact/marketing technique that "sex sells". Also since I believe the majority of their customers are male, they believe the scantly clad women are the best way to get our attention.

I am not sure on that. We see many ladies installing X10 Automation these days.

I bookmarked the old site link and refuse to go though the new one.

Don't get me wrong. I'd love to be be wrong on this. I'm just basing my opinion on the observation of the the overwhelming percent of men that are active on this forum and the chat room I frequent.
Ladies if you're out there, speak up and prove me wrong!

Not a lady, but speaking up anyway.

The bimbo pix probably get a few of us men to hesitate before scrolling on. But the Bimbo pix do not sell any product. The product itself, convenience, security, and "techiness" sells the product. If Bimbo pix actually sold product then Smarthome.com would have silicone sisters plastered all over their web site. I think X10 marketing has some maturity issues.

I find the need to speak out about the new look of the X10 site.
It has occurred repeated times in my situation while either going through the daily emails or visiting the site and my young kids are near by and off everything has to go so as not to give the wrong impression to them.
A good laugh at first. but the email with the new look is totally unacceptable anymore by myself and oh boy the Wife too. I feel many here are feel the same about this and I for one as much as I enjoy doing the daily X10 Web rounds but must stop for starters the email and send them strait to Junk and for going to the main site will be less frequent. I have all the X10 I need. But Just going to the site always gives me the need to buy something new. Now, it is a totally different feel and so now I fill the Time playing with the kids, hold it that's a good thing then, I guess the I should Thank X10 for that.  Maybe to really a get a feel, put a vote to it.

Perhaps I should of bolded the words 'they believe' in the above as that was my real point. While I have at times checked out an "ad", none of my home automation purchases have ever or will ever be influenced by scantly clad pictures. I tend be more in agreement with your opinion as to the maturity level of the marketing staff.

All that said, I would still be interested in hearing a woman's perspective on the issue, if any are here to respond. Even more important is if anyone is offended by X10's advertising, male or female, they should contact X10's marketing department and file a complaint. Also while X10 does have some interesting 'multiple number' for 1 deals for items, there are other places to shop.

It would seem that x10's daily email has gone into the toilet as well.  I usually just send it right to my "delete" folder (trying not to use the word "trash" here) but for some unknown reason, I opened it up today right before church.  I had no idea how bad things had gotten.
Shame on you X10!

After that comment I had to look as well :-[
I guess it sells  ??? :'
But probably turns away a lot of potential purchases from females :'  :(
