>   * Less training required
>   * Fewer technical glitches = less downtime
>   * Prevents employees from wasting time with email, computer games,

>   * Bright red color brightens up the workplace
>   * Less chance of electric shock, static damage, etc. due to misuse.
>   * Full compatibility with other Etch-A-Sketches
> To assist employees in adjusting to this new technology, here are

> A:   Pick it up and shake it.
> Q:   How do I turn my Etch-A-Sketch off? 
> A:   Pick it up and shake it.

> Q:   How do I save my Etch-A-Sketch document?
