Waterproof laptops, waterproof watches, and marketing strategy

A demonstration of waterproof laptops in Hotel Radisson reminded me of the ‘amphibian watches’ sold on the streets of Bhotahity.

We have seen a lot of ‘waterproof’ wrist-watches being sold in the streets. These amphibian watches are actually being dipped in salt-water and normal water easily damage them. So, What You See (WYS) is not What You Get (WYG). The difference between the photo above and below: the chicks on the photo above are models on tights and the one below can’t afford to be slim and sexy enough!

Questions arise: Do they need to pour water on the laptop to show that it is waterproof enough? I can coat my laptop with water repellents and pour a couple of such bottles!

How long will our business people continue to believe in such short-sighted marketing strategies? By the way, the demonstration was done on NEC laptop model in an event held in a hotel in Kathmandu.

Update: Thanks to a visitor, someone, who showed my mistake in the comment. I don’t doubt the laptop being waterproof but, I was only pointing out the way it was presented.
