So this comes up in my Facebook Feed:

"LUBBOCK RESIDENTS - REVOLUTIONARY NEW DEVICES LETS YOU WATCH HUNDREDS OF HOURS OF TELEVISION FOR FREE!"

Oh but the description gets better, just about the time I am thinking: "TAKE MY MONEY!"

"Fortunately, there is a solution to watch HDTV for free and legally!

A US-based company has just created a new, innovative and inexpensive device that is changing the way people use the media - The TV Bandit" The device, well it is not new or innovative.

HDTV? Of course, it is free, over-the-air, and it is legal, this isn't a selling point.

All the TV Bandit is, is an over-the-air TV antenna.

These have existed since the dawn of television. It might have been new and innovative in let's say 1950.

Do the TV Bandit people really think Lubbock folks are this simple? Come on now, give us some credit. Oh yea, you can get an over-the-air antenna cheaper at Walmart and it will still give you:

"HUNDREDS OF HOURS OF FREE AND LEGAL TV PROGRAMMING!"
