Efficiencies could have been found elsewhere
How many IT houses are like ours, and get nine copies of the Dabs catalogue, every few weeks (four of them addressed to people who no longer work for the company)?
They may using this carpet bombing approach to sales a bit less, these days, but when I hear the name 'Dabs', I think of a fat, ugly, gaudy little booklet, printed on thin shiny paper, full of dreary pictures of mindlessly delighted young women with microphones strapped to their faces, USB pens, and digital cameras from companies I'd never heard of.
Inevitably, these things would be unwrapped from their no-recycleable pastic packaging, and dumped in the 'not worth pulping' waste paper bin. I am given to wonder how much of the money, that they now find they do not have, was spent on sending me this colourful glimpse into a world where camcorders could be used on the beach without jamming full of sand, and blissful couples sat down to watch balloons on their plasma screen TVs.
