I was not being totally serious in my previous reply and I have to say that in the UK electronics would not normally be sold with a web site like the X10 site. It is true to say that in general young ladies are used more in England for advertising than in the USA. The classic example of this is the 'Sun' newspaper which is the biggest selling daily newspaper in England. Every day there is a different topless lady on page 3, I cannot imagine that happening in the USA!

The funny thing is that the owner of the Sun Newspaper also owns Fox News in the USA. I keep watching Fox News but they never seem to show any good crumpet (Brit slang for a nice looking young lady). :-[

Vive La Difference as the French would say.

I'm an expat Brit living in Canada and I find the site offensive too, it's very hard explaining to "Her who must be obeyed" that seriously it's X-10 not just boobs & bits....

There's no "boobs & bits", you don't see anything that you would see at the beach.

True, but not too many X10 Home Automation uses at the beach...

[Point being:  Babes in skimpy clothing are irrelevant to Home Automation.  I don't see them on the SmartHome site!]
