Good ideas with bad execution, or good execution of what should be bad ideas - an analysis of inferior, off-beat or malfunctioning products, and how other people's failures can help us design better stuff.

Sainsbury’s auto-generated coupon fails to tempt

This one made my wife laugh at the weekend – an auto-generated supermarket coupon (after quite a large shop) that rather fails to tempt you back to the store.

Can anyone improve on this? Any takers for ‘a penny disount’? Or are we becoming too decadent in failing to appreciate a tuppence off?
