What do you feel if you lose $800,000 for correct answered?

--:-- | --:--
According to multiple sources (examples linked below), Post-it Notes were test-marketed in four cities in 1977, with the national roll-out following in 1980. Apart from the technicality that the product originally was sold under the name "Press & Peel" (which would be a stretch even if the category were "brands" instead of "inventions"), "C" was the correct answer. Therefore, the contestants should have lost only $80,000 (not $800,000) on the question.
I cringed when the post-it note money got dropped. DX

They started selling on April 6 1980. Sony Walkman July 7 1979. And Macintosh in janurary 1984. So it was the Walkman.

not really, an economy is designed to control personal gains and distribute an individual's gains through taxes, fees, etc. for "as they say" the greater good... you wanna get "rich", from "hard work" then move out of this country.

From what I remember Post-Its were made because they were trying to make glue at first, but something went wrong with the formula, creating very weak glue. It can make things stick to surfaces BUT, they were very easy to peel off. SO, the people who made this glue, decided to apply it to a paper, write notes and place them on surfaces (just like how Post-Its do). Then they started to sell that stuff :P

Oh, 80,000$, woe is you.

Diversification, yep. Never hedge an all-in bet unless you're 99.999% (literally, like, without a shadow of a doubt) sure. Even if they won the 800k, they'd probably spend it all in a couple years. Happens all the time with lotto winners. It's all about consistent and stable gains.

The category, again, as I said in my previous post, was inventions. Not brands.

While you have a good point it was only on April 6, 1980, the product debuted in US stores as "Post-It Notes". It is just a trick question designed to make people lose money.
