What a stupid, stupid argument -- you're comparing things in different classes.Originally posted by Imran Siddiqui
Once again... you ever driven a Benz? The smooth ride, handling, and acceleration is definetly worth $30,000 more than a Camry.
Compare a Benz to a BMW, or even an Acura. Benz sales have dropped off in recent years for a reason.
They sell entirely off image now -- they do have bigger engines than Camries (oh, what an accomplishment ), but they don't compare with other makers in its class. BMW regularly has ads focusing on performance and reliability in car magazines, Mercedes focuses on image only.
Mini-limo my ass. It looks like boxy crap...And have you ever looked INSIDE an H2? Yeah, its just like a Yukon (but loaded on the inside like a mini-limo) .
Apparently you don't want to believe me, but the H2 has HUGE part commonality with the Yukon XL. It's nothing but a Yukon with a harder image and the "Hummer" brand.
When did I ever say that -- another strawman.And the automobile market has no selling points beyond image and style?
Please comprehend arguments before tearing down what you want my argument to be.
The true selling point of the iPod is image and style -- that's what the marketing is based on, accordingly.Maybe they are finally starting to get it... perhaps the digital music market doesn't have a 'true selling point' (as defined by Asher) .
That's not a reason to buy IMO, and I understand most people don't agree with me. That's fine. They're likely the same people who buy Fords year after year, or make other ridiculously uninformed decisions.
People are stupid, and by catering to stupidity Apple is making a fortune in the low-end electronics market. This strategy fails once it becomes a "big ticket" purchase like a computer, where most people do a bit more research into it before buying.
I congratulate Apple on their success in marketing to people lacking intellectual capacity, and I congratulate you on joining the ranks as well, Imran. Your constant stream of strawmen makes it abundantly clear that you're likely on the waiting list for a PowerMac, or you will be soon.
