You mean you're going after the jewelry crowd? That should be
interesting. If I start seeing old women with big hair wearing 4004's
around their neck, I'll be happy being able to say "I knew Paxton when he
started this trend."

Yes, and I did it without making any false claims, and included
information about the chips including their source and date codes to
ensure there was no misleading information. So, it should be clear that
I've got nothing against "keywords", but there's a HUGE difference between
getting keywords into a description and being misleading once somebody
actually reads the description.
