Gawd, yes. And to make it worse, the marketdroids keep changing the packaging.

Does it not occur to them that:

- Their products are all basically the same.
- There are bazillions of them on the shelf.
- We find the one we prefer by looking for "The green transparent one" or whatever

And unless we don't have a strong preference, when "The green transparent one" is suddenly "The blue opaque bottle with sparklies" we're just going to buy whatever else is handy. And keep buying it until THEY change their packaging too.

You want "New and improved"? Put a sticker on THE OLD BOTTLE that says so.
