X10's Pornographic Email Ads...
« on: December 11, 2008, 11:02:22 AM »

Honestly, I have nothing against scantily clad women -- but the X10 emails are getting a bit ridiculous. How can anyone take these products seriously when X10 resorts to soft pornography to get someone to open the ad? Do they think that luring someone to click with the hopes of seeing more nakedness will ultimately entice them to buy a mini-timer or two?
C'mon -- grow up.

Like I have said before. IMO the X10 Marketing Director (and appearently the President also) is 17 years old, still in high school, and needs a girl friend.

There is no way bimbos, floozies, and trollups will sell "more" home automation and security products.

That's a good reason NEVER to even sign up for X10's regular e-mails. I never did. Only ones I get are when I order something from X10.

Yeah... whoever sat at their desk and decided: "What is really needed on the Internet... is more opportunity's to see scantly clad young women."  Likely doesn't have an Internet connection.

...... bimbos, floozies, and trollups .

dave w, I spent a large portion of my adult life single (divorced) and hope your not speaking poorly of the women that gave me so much comfort.

<big grin> I don't think so...but the question is; did they influence you to buy MORE X10 products? I suspect not. PS I also have dated a tollup or two  :D

Wouldn't it blow your mind if you got very professional x10 ad in your email box with average looking people in average business attire presenting their products in a professional manner? - Like they should.

Who has to worry about some slinky kitten of a woman sneaking around your property at night behind trees anyway.
I've always just let them in.  ;D

I married the last one that was here.

What do you expect from Vegas anyway?

They use sex on the billboards along the interstate to sell insurance.
Those with the city limits prolly think it's normal.

So... I hear it snowed in Las Vegas yesterday.
I'll bet you didn't see too many chicks running around in their unmentionables then.   ;D

I guess they think a bunch of nerds by X10 products... but that being the case, they should know we know how they only sell their products at reasonable prices on their specials and google what we want for the best deals when we need something anyways...

They probably would need to be so deceiving on their newsletters/on sale pages if they just made the rest of their site easier to use and had reasonable prices on their single items instead of having me buy a pack of many things for $30 because buying the single item was $50...

Also, it is time for them to make new innovative products, the icon remote is a start, but I think we all have alarm clocks already. There are a lot of simple things such as ceiling fan controllers and outdoor modules (That Black and Decker has already made) that X10 has not covered. Then RFID, Door Locks, Smoke Alarms, Carbon Monoxide Alarms, Leak Detection Alarms, maybe X10s own line of weather products that tie in seamlessly with Active Home Pro...

But I guess if there are no new products to get me going, keep sending me the ladies...

......   it is time for them to make new innovative products, .......

Yeah... we always want more.. newer, better, more cutting edge. But we're a niche market at best.. with way too few users to generate the sales required to for real innovation. That's likely why X10 uses the girls... bling and flash.. to attract attention.

Then... most users are (rightfully THRILLED) if they can turn off the downstairs lights...  from the upstairs bedroom. However... if you read here at the forum... you will see where many members modify products to expand there abilities. There is a bunch that can be done with these basic X10 products.

I just joined the Forum.

I am looking to learn more about X10 products. The X10 website  in my opinion is the most childish website I have seen. You have to dig to the bottom of the page to go anywhere. Most of the links take you to another splash screen selling another "Package". What I want to see on a website is Information!! I what to know all the tek specs, The size and weight, and the color. I want to see a tek write up as to what exactally the darn thing does!

Instead when I go to the X10 site I have to weed through a bunch of hype, ignore 5 or 6 "Special Sales", look at a bunch of pasted bimbos and get frustrated because I came here for "professional" products and support...Boy what a disappointment.

Oh the Girls???? If I wanted to see naked or half naked women, I would NOT come here I would go to a real free site. there are many other free places with women on line in any shape size form you want.and the best part is it's free. Oh I just might see if I can meet a lady in the real world.

Ok off my soapbox!!
Anyway I better get back to fixin this camera system..

Oh, my God!  Maybe they listened!
I just opened the latest X10 email and no porn!

Only one lady in a bathtub tastefully covered by bubbles, and one in a reasonably tasteful bikini!
