With the busy Holiday shopping season well underway in the U.S., shoppers are looking to many sources for gift ideas, including TV programs. During the recent airing of two nationally syndicated TV shows, the Acer Iconia Tab 8 and Aspire Switch 10 came up as recommended gifts.
Live with Kelly & Michael is the #2 nationally syndicated daytime talk show in the U.S. with 4.2 million viewers. In a recent show, Mashable’s Lance Ulanoff appeared with his top tech recommendations for the holiday season – he had selected more than 40 products, so during the brief segment, there were no guarantees on inclusion. The Iconia Tab 8 was discussed and showcased during the tablet portion – Ulanoff mentioned that at just $199, the Iconia Tab 8 is a great gift for kids.
Fox & Friends, a highly rated national morning cable news program, ran a segment on top gift ideas for teens. Program guest, Kris Schoels, of the TheChicWife.com provided a range of suggestions, from clothing to phone cases, and selected the Aspire Switch 10 as her recommended computer for teenagers. She noted that it’s a tablet and laptop in one device, it offers a touch screen, is scratch proof, durable and available at just $349. Host Elisabeth Hasselbeck commented that it’s “2-in-1 for a great price.” Fox & Friends averages about 973,000 viewers per day nationwide during its daily morning cable broadcast, with more viewers than the competing news programs on CNN and MSNBC combined.
