This Post has an OTM rating of 2 days.

So, in conversation today, we created the OTM rating scale for new technology. This is how long from the time of purchase it takes for your opinion of the item to go from Ooh! to Meh! This should be a required statistic listed for all new devices. This was discovered while playing with a POS at work. (That's Point-of-Sale, keep it clean!) I discovered an unlocking lever on the monitor, and said Ooh! I then played with it, and discovered that it was already at the best position, the others were horrible, prompting a Meh!. We then observed that it took about two seconds to go from Ooh to Meh, and the OTM rating was born!
