Sony’s Not Too Subtle Upsell

By Jeffrey Eisenberg
January 10th, 2006

I was shopping for a laptop and found something interesting while configuring one that I liked. Take a look, at the upper right had corner of the image after clicking on it, at the title of this page. It is obviously labeled correctly. I’m just not sure it was appropriate to share it with the public. Do you agree?

  1. Hilarious. It’s like the online marketing equivalent of the classic Freudian slip!

  2. That’s the upper left, not upper right.

  3. Oops! Thanks Tony. Please don’t let anybody else know that I can’t tell my left from my right. How very embrassing.

  4. I do believe they let the cat out of the bag. So much for business honety and building customer trust.

    Well I guess if McDonalds can do it, why not. Hopefully they will catch it and do it with more style next time.

  5. Your guide to all kinds of Lounge Chair Cushions.
