I read about the Spindolyn on Shannon Okey's blog.
As someone who intends to learn to spin soon...like today (posts to come) this looks like a great idea. But is it somehow cheating? Would a motorized spinning wheel be cheating? Do motorized spinning wheels exist already?
Anyway, I think they need a different approach to the commercial. They need to show people dropping their drop spindles (but not on purpose), standing in odd positions, looking frustrated, with a voice over that says "are you tired of this?" or "has this happened to you?" Then they need to show the product, and throw in a second one for free if you call in the next 15 minutes.
