Gadgets for free
I've been receiving the NFB mail for almost a month now, and it immediately surprises me how much unsolicited catalogues, branded calendars, notebooks, and other promotional stuff I receive. I can understand the catalogues, but I've never seen the use of sending notebooks or calendars with it. It doesn't influence me at all. Others perhaps, but I fail to imagine someone saying "Ah, but they send me a free notebook with their logo and address information on every page, NOW I will order at theirs". It might be me. I still hope not.
