Just to be clear -- this is not a satirical article. This is a real promotion. You can go download the DigitalFood app (the official app of budget grocery chain Food 4 Less) to see for yourself. As of this writing, there's a promotional banner for the footage touting the canonization of "America's First Hispanic Saint," but none of the footage is available yet. There are also links in the app to learn more about the official tortilla brands and VR headsets of the promotion. Let's pretend for a second that it's not totally tacky to capitalize on the occasion of bestowing sainthood upon a man of the cloth to sell tortillas, no matter who is doing the canonizing. Even then, you'd have to ignore the pope's record of criticizing unfettered capitalism, recently calling it the "dung of the devil" to think this is a great idea.
And how many Food 4 Less shoppers (or Whole lovecases floral art iphone 8 / 7 case - maroon Foods or Trader Joes or whatever shoppers, for that matter) actually have Google Cardboard or a similar VR headset for their phones?, But marketing is deaf to irony and once again, the marketers have already won, because I've given them my email and now some of you probably will too, Perhaps the worst part is that I have to admit, Mission Tortillas -- the official brand for the VR pope experience -- are actually pretty good, even if they are the dung of the devil..
Welcome to America, your Holiness, we're not all so ridiculous, I promise. Commentary: Pope Francis isn't a fan of unfettered capitalism, but that doesn't mean capitalists won't capitalize on his visit. You can avoid the throngs taking to the streets of Washington, Philadelphia and New York this week to glimpse Pope Francis and still experience his historic visit at home via the wonders of virtual reality. But not without enabling one of the most tone-deaf marketing promotions I've seen since the great Samsung debacle of 2013, which saw a GS4 launch full of sexist stereotypes.
I tend to think that gadgets are making us more neurotic, if that was even possible, Seventeen-year-old Paul Houle Jr., however, believes that without his Apple Watch he might be dead, He explained to ABC News that he checked his Apple Watch before football practice earlier this month, He attends Tabor Academy in Marion, Massachusetts, After two practices on the same day, he began to experience chest and back pain, He told ABC News: "I didn't think much of it, I thought I was just sore and I would feel better the next day."It was lovecases floral art iphone 8 / 7 case - maroon then, he said that he looked at his Apple Watch again and noticed his heart rate was at 145, twice the normal rate, So he told his athletic trainer..
Very soon, he was in the ER. There, he learned he had rhabdomyolysis. His father, a neurosurgeon, told ABC News: "That means that your muscle breaks down and floods your system with protein. It can effect multiple organs."Houle Jr.'s heart, liver and kidneys had already suffered some damage. Dr. Houle told ABC News: "If it wasn't for the Apple Watch to alert him to the fact that there was a problem, he probably would have just gone back to bed. He would have showed up for practice the next day and would have been one of the kids you read about every fall, who drops dead on the football field."Apple believes that its watch is "the most personal device we've ever made." The company says that the product will encourage healthy behavior (while sometimes nagging you.) In measuring heart rate, Apple says the watch measures it continuously, so that you can notice anything unusual immediately. For accurate measurement, the company suggests you make sure your watch fits well. While some people like to post their results online for others to see, it serves as a constant self-monitoring system which some might find bafflingly self-obsessed.
