We were promised jetpacks

We were promised jetpacks and we got algorithmically-generated online skill practice instead.

This was in my InBox from a college textbook publisher today:

Enhanced Web Assign is unique to Cengage Learning.  What makes it enhanced?  We offer rich tutorial content, algorithmically generated problems (each student gets a different set of numbers to practice the problems), comprehensive grade book, and unique pedagogical features such as

READ IT, WATCH IT, PRACTICE IT, MASTER IT, and CHAT ABOUT IT.

Unique pedagogical features, huh? Read, watch, practice instead of watch, practice? Ugh.
