Sears is known for selling home appliances and tools, but at least one woman is accusing the retailer of being a tool for selling mouse pads with messages some find offensive.
"My kid had sex with your honor student," one mouse pad reads, while another says, "My President fooled around with your honor student."
It's not like we haven't heard these one liners before or seen them on bumper stickers when stuck in traffic, but we're admittedly surprised to see Sears of all places carrying them. We're just not offended by them, like Patti from St. Charles, who wrote an email to her local CBS affiliate in Chicago.
"I was shopping at Sears online store," she wrote, "and I was shocked to find that they sell mouse pads saying things like, 'I got your honor student pregnant.'"
We're guessing she probably wouldn't like the mouse pads that are sold in Spencers, either.
According to recent reports, the production cost for Blu-ray players is roughly $100 today, thanks to pick-up heads and chipsets making up 50 and 25 percent of this cost, respectively. Though, it’s expected that this price will come down greatly, providing consumers with the potential for $50 players.
Thanks to Sears and Meijer selling players at only $99.99, many industry professionals are expecting that the players will soon be seeing a price drop, if larger resellers are able to sell them at this price. The price drop is currently being linked to more makers of the two key components (the pick-up heads and chipsets) sporting higher yield rates.
