    This is no more than an infomercial. I've seen better demo's on the Home Shopping Network and YouTube. She takes way too long to demo simple tasks.

    Watched a little of this and was disappointed by her frequent mumbling, making it impossible to understand quite a bit of what she was saying. I didn't find her ideas very innovative but didn't watch the whole thing.
