Sell liseuses via 'tupperware party'?

Microsoft is selling its awful operating system using the 'tupperware' method: http://www.smh.com.au/digital-life/p...0923-g1gv.html - should we liseuse bearers be spruiking liseuses using the same methods?
(For those who aren't aware, a liseuse is a ebook reader device, distinct from an ordinary PC with ebooks on it..)

Says it all, really. If you look really closely you can just see Ballmer's hand up his... puppet manipulation hole. What a muppet.

A new low in the many lows of the post-XP Microsoft OS flogging tactics.

While it sounds like an interesting marketing tool, what would we (liseuse pushers) get out of it exactly?

Personally I don't mine loanwords, French or otherwise - it's the stuff English is built on

I once held a Tupperware party, in order to not have to go door to door, to sell my services.

Unfortunately, when the prospective purchasers wanted to ensure I "burped" when squeezed tight... I ended up farting.

*** I apologize to everyone unfamiliar to Tupperware(TM) parties, and everyone familiar with Tupperware(TM) parties.

And everyone else.

Sorry.

Frankly: the persons in the video- they're scary. They're too cheerful. But the method could work for liseuses why not.

If people are going to continue with this idiocy of trying to convert a random french word for use instead of terms that the mainstream might recognise then its inevitable that there will be complaints in threads where the objectional term is in the subject.
