HP Launches TV Promoting Character Blog
Joining the character blog trend, HP has launched ILoveMyHPTV.com, to promote its high-definition TV line. The site is written by Ted who, keeps a rant-like blog which contains blatherings on how he chose his HP TV and how people can convince their reluctant other half to go for a big screen monstrosity. There's also a webcam for no apparent reason but the site does offer an interesting tool, called the Dr. Troy Meddleson's Persuasion Method, for convincing a reluctant romantic partner that an HP TV purchase is a good thing. Oh, and it would be a promotional site without the requisite sweepstakes offer. In this case, a chance to win, shockingly, HP products.

Thereís stuff going on the webcam. Ted was watching a movie and looking at his bald spot with a mirror. Then his woman exercised. And she keeps taking down the moosehead, but he puts it back up. Itís different stuff throughout the day and night. Only wish there was a Dashboard widget for it.
Uh oh! Looks like HP didn't approve of this site-- it's now being redirected to the hp.com site. Interesting!
