Advertising in Society
It was my job today to write a summary on a product that in my belief is not being marketed effectively to the public. I choose to discuss the newest form of portable “computer” like device that has become extremely popular, the tablet.

But with the other very well known brands how is there not more knowledge about the other tablets on the market? With the lack of marketing from these other companies...
