I'm talking about direct response television ("DRTV"). One form of DRTV that is commonly known is called the infomercial. Ring a bell for you? One interesting company involved in the DRTV space is Lenfest Media Group.




Inventor News on Davison Design

Tue, 12 Dec 2006 05:27:41 -0800

(image) George Davidson III and his company, Davidson Design and Development, Inc., has been in the news quit a lot recently. He's of particular interest in the Inventor community as a result of a lawsuit filed against them for misrepresenting its services to inventors.

(now known as Davison Design and Development, Inc.), Manufacturer's Support Services, Inc., George M. Davison III, Gordon M. Davison, Barbara Miele-Davison to pay $26 million for misrepresenting its services to inventors. Davison Design has appealed the court's decision.

You Heard It Here First: Safuto - Pure Flush Can NOT be the American Inventor (or can he?)

Wed, 26 Apr 2006 17:53:40 -0700

Ok - I know I sound a little indecisive but I've got some facts and they just don't add up. I originally came to the conclusion that Safuto can not win the American Inventor title but Thinkoutsidethecircle thinks my original draft was a little too decisive. So let me tell you the facts and my conclusion. Let me know if you agree or not.

FACT 1: The INPEX Press Release

I just got this Press Release off of The Invention/New Product Exposition (INPEX) website.

California "American Inventor" Million Dollar Contender to Exhibit the "Pureflush" Toilet Seat at America's Largest Invention Show. read more »

Soil Test Kit: Product Review

Mon, 16 Jul 2007 17:37:23 -0700

(image)

For many years I have denied that my lawn was lacking in grass and overflowing with weeds. I can no longer ignore the issue. So I've been trying to improve the grass to weeds ratio but I am trying to accomplish it in an environmental friendly way. The best way to improve your chance of growing grass in a green friendly manner is to test your soil to determine its pH and determine which nutrients it's lacking. You need a perfect balance in order to enable grass to grow on your lawn. Think of your lawn as your body. You need to feed it a balanced diet in order to keep healthy. read more »

Well at least I've had a few lawn guys come around and tell me this. The problem is that lawn testing is expensive. I think last year I got a quote from a landscaper of $75 for testing a sample and since my property is on the larger side, I need more than one sample. So when I saw the Soil Test Kit on Edmund Scientific, I thought it was a no brainer.

Are the American Inventor Final 12 Products Already on the Market?

Wed, 19 Apr 2006 08:20:55 -0700

Some of our visitors are perplexed about the fact that a couple of the “inventions” showcased on American Inventor show in the Top 12 Finalist already exist. The already existing products break down into two categories: (1) the actual inventor on American Idol is already selling the item and (2) another person is already selling a product very similar to the one on American Inventor.

I didn’t understand how this was happening either so I tried to find out how existing products could end up in the Final 12. read more »




Spherical Safety Seat, Un-Brella, Double Traction Bike: Are They Copycat Products?

Tue, 02 May 2006 16:23:52 -0700

Since I wrote my last article "Are the American Inventor Final 12 Products Already on the Market?" (posted April 19, 2006), we have received more e-mails and comments informing us about other products in the Final 12 that already exist that were not previously discussed. So I decided to write a follow up on the following three products:

1. Sheryl McDonald – Un-Brella (InBrella);

2. Francisco Patino - Double Traction Bike (D-Tract 2x2); and

3. Janusz Lieberkowski - Spherical Safety Seat.

None of these three products had a patent.

Have Money to Burn? Spend $4 Million on a Hotel (Space Hotel)

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 18:14:51 -0700

(image)

A Barcelona-based space tourism company plans to open the Galactic Suite, the first space hotel, in 2012 (yes, I said space). Tickets should go on sale in 2008 for $4 million. That price includes 18 weeks preparation on a Caribbean island, the journey into space and three nights' accommodation in the orbital hotel. Could you imagine how expensive your trip would be if it didn't include the airfare?

The Galactic Suite would allow guests to travel around the world in 80 minutes. During a guests' stay, they would see the sun rise 15 times a day and use Velcro suits to crawl around their pod rooms by sticking themselves to the walls like Spiderman.
