How Helpless We've Become

If the commercial media is any indication, we have become quite helpless as a society. The marketing is now oriented to product that can make everything so much easier that the product actually does the most simple things for you. So either they think the consumer is helpless or lazy....

Case in Point #1: a toothbrush that beeps to tell you when you're done brushing. well, i do lose count...???? also tells you if you're brushing too hard. the line: "helps you achieve the dental-recommended 2 minutes"

Case in Point #2: kitty litter that changes colors when it's time to change it...good for those with no sense of smell or depth perception...???? the line: "see odor before you can smell it!"
