Too bad the vast majority never will!

A quote from AJ Khubani himself that will likely fall on deaf ears:

"The odds that your idea will succeed is very slim," warned Khubani. TeleBrands looks at thousands of inventions each year and handpicks about 10 to take to market, he said. "Just look at Thomas Edison. A vast majority of his ideas weren't commercially viable," said Khubani.

We've all heard the expression "Caveat Emptor" (Let the Buyer Beware) but companies like Allstar and Telebrands are hoping we haven't. Perhaps inventors need an expression of their own:

INVENTORS, GET REAL!! :wink:

Can anyone say! Forever Lazy lol :D My local Wal-mart (5 in my humble city) was the first with pallet pushing a month ago; Meijer was next... I am pretty sure after 2 months now I can pick one up at Best-Buy if i tried. I have been recently searching new products through http://www.trademarkia.com/ (no spam) you can literally find new products before they hit the store shelves based on Corporation names... kind-of interesting from a research or informative point of view. I like it because I can get an idea of who is licensing what type and quality of products currently 8)
