Yesterday I saw a TV commercial that has me a little perplexed.
It starts out with a little boy in his PJs, playing with a blanket, and saying “I want a babysitter who won’t make me take naps.” Then there’s a little girl saying “No naps!”
It’s a commercial for care.com. One thing they show is that you can search for sitters by ZIP code. They show the web page with a ZIP code, and someone typing one in. All well and good.
But they type in MY ZIP code! I find that really odd. I don’t live in a place that’s so special that it would get any special attention. You’d figure that they’d use one in New York or LA.
Does the technology exist that they can show the ZIP code of wherever the receiving TV set is?
