Catch up on shows with The Coast On Demand

Want to get the best price if you're selling on-line? Try using a red background for the photo of your item.
A new study claims that the so-called ‘aggressive’ colour causes people to spend more than they normally would when bidding.
The University of Virginia researchers asked study participants to pretend they were buying a games console on eBay.
They then showed the consumers the console on a white screen, with either a blue, red, or grey banner.
Higher bids were offered when the background screen was red, perhaps because they were competing with other bidders.
Red doesn't always work though - when the background was blue for the ‘buy it now’ option, the group would pay more.
A 2009 study from Science Magazine claims that red enhances performances in detail-oriented tasks, whereas blue helped in more abstract, creative fields.
