Maybe George Jetson Was Trying To Tell Us Something

I saw an advertisement yesterday that could only make me laugh. There is finally a product on the market that has a higher intelligence level than some of it's possible buyers. Oral-B has devised a toothbrush with a computer built in it that not only tells the user when it is time to change the cleaning head, but offers a multitude of different oscillation and pulsation settings (cleaning speeds), and will even let you know when you have brushed for the recommended two minutes. (Just in case anyone may have difficulty counting to 120.) Again, this is another exemplary display of marketing. But honestly, are we all as consumers that dumb? Years ago many scoffed at the idea of artificial intelligence. I would think we are well on our way.
