EXAM#____________ Page 2 of 16 Gallagher: Torts, Final Exam, Fall 2011 PART I – ESSAY (200 total points) (Suggested time: 2 Hours) Paul purchased a new blender, called the “Torpedo.” It was advertised as a multi-purpose blender, capable of grinding ice, chopping vegetables, and making smoothies and milk shakes, all in about ten seconds. It has a simple design. A metal bowl with blades at the bottom holds the food, and a clear, plastic cover fits over the top. The user activates the blender by simply pressing down on the cover and holding it until the food is chopped to the desired consistency. The blender has only one speed—fast. Its appeal is that it is much faster and more powerful than other light duty blenders. The retail price is $49.95. The manufacturer, BigCo, conducted market research and concluded that consumers are most likely to purchase small kitchen appliances priced under $50.00. Thus it was important to keep manufacturing costs as low as possible. To save costs, BigCo decided not to include a printed product manual with the Torpedo. Instead, purchasers are referred to BigCo’s website, where they can download an electronic version of the manual.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
