Ruslan Kogan obviously wants you to stimulate his economic wellbeing when you get your $900 cheque from K-Rudd, seeing as how he's just announced a 37-inch Kogan LCD cheekily named "Kevin37". The 1366 x 768 HD screen will even come with a free promotional T-shirt in the style of the Kevin 07 campaign shirt.The $900 set looks like a fairly mid-range model from the specs, but for the price tag, what can you expect? What's nice about this story is the cheeky marketing Kogan has used to get the message out there. Of course, in five year's time, are you going to want a TV named after Kevin Rudd in your lounge room?
