Walsingham Posted October 20, 2006 Share Posted October 20, 2006 http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/6069784.stm It seems Sony have released a new advert. It looks really cool. I like the premise. I think to myself 'Hmmm. Sony seem to be a hip company with fresh ideas. I might buy their stuff.' Then I think 'Actually no I won't' The reason in my case is that my mother recently bought a Sony Vaio laptop. I had an immensely frustrating time flailing at the damn thing to get all the 'helpful' bits and bobs disconnected. I despise companies like Microsoft that treat me like I've come off a production line with no ideas of my own, and to find Sony doing it totally turned me 'off'. I suddenly perceived Sony as this aspiring megalith (which it probably was already but I never saw it that way), and resolved to patronise other companies. Has anyone else had this allergic reaction to being patronised, and if so, why do the stupid fethwits keep doing it? "It wasn't lies. It was just... bull****"." -Elwood Blues tarna's dead; processing... complete. Disappointed by Universe. RIP Hades/Sand/etc. Here's hoping your next alt has a harp.
