Staples Sells Easy Button


Apparently, so many people like the Easy Button featured in the latest batch of Staples commercial, the office supply retailer has decides to sell the button which, when pushed, utters, "That was easy." It's rare when a commercial creates a product other than the one it intended to sell. Not that the Easy Button will actually help you get more work done but at least it will for a bit of office diversion.

Now, the smart thing would have been to give them away. That would have been fun PR.

Or give it a USB connection and when you press it, have it go to Staples website. That would be more typing! :-)

Smart little viral move--and since Staples is donating the first $1 million of proceeds to a charity, you'll feel like a cad if you DON'T buy one!

I hope the trend continues -- I'd really like to have one of those VW Beetles that Best Buy uses in their 'Geek Squad' commercials!
