I used to love the original Gawker, which skewered worthy victims with wit and panache.

So I had high hopes when the blog was revived under fresh leadership.

Unfortunately, the new blog has no wit or bite whatsoever. I keep looking for interesting stories there -- and coming up with nothing.

The new Gawker is just desperate and dreary and deserves to be retired forever -- or reignited under new management. Heavy sigh...

Verified purchase

I live in NYC and just ordered a hip therapy wrap with heat and massage from SI last Friday.

Needless to say, I need this gizmo sooner than later to relieve the hip pain that has made me hobble around and have trouble standing up after sitting.

Initially, I got messages saying the package would arrive last Tuesday. That was then -- and this is now -- six days after shipment -- when the package is supposedly in Wyoming (?) and FedEx can't even estimate an ETA any more.


UPDATE: the package finally showed up yesterday, nine days after it was shipped. The good news is the product worked as expected. It also came with a catalog and $25 Gift Card to entice me to buy more stuff.

I took a look at Sharper's prices and -- yikes! -- they're way out of line, comparable to those at Hammacher-Schlemmer but without the lifetime guarantee that outstanding company offers.

So I would buy again from SI only if they offer a product I can't find anywhere else...

Tip for consumers:
Don't expect to get anything cheap or soon!

Products used:
Hip therapy wrap.
