Taste's are subjective so too judge someone based on what you think is good taste is foolish and ignorant. If someone chooses to drive a $5k car to work because it is practical does not make them inferior but since you would consider the car poor taste you would judge them as such. I drive 02' Honda accord to work, it is great on gas, my 2010 SRT8 sits in the garage. So to you, by me driving an 02' Honda Accord, I am inferior. To others, my 02' Honda Accord is practical and they may consider me smart and practical. If I am driving my '10, some will call me flamboyant and inconsiderate of the environment. Bottom line, if you instantly judge someone based on their material things you will lose and are a poor judge of character, character which has zero to do with material possessions. Hell I give more credit to someone with a paid off 02 Honda Accord than I would to someone driving a 2012 Ferrari and up to their neck in debt. Since you are here I will assume you are a Steve Jobs worshiper. That fool wore jeans and black turtlenecks, if you did not know who he was and saw him on the street how would you judge him?

Yes, folks. That's his definition of quality.

Thanks for setting us straight on where you stand.

And don't worry. I'm sure all those rational arguments provided by him against Apple are still absolutely spot on.

He obviously has an eye for these things, you know.

I'd also like to thank him for providing us all with our never to be underestimated, extremely important daily dose of laughter by referring to the lack of quality in German cars.

His knowledge on patent law is obviously only exceeded by his knowledge of automobiles.

Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and Volkswagen would like to thank him for bringing to their attention the obvious quality control problems they are known and renowned for.

Thanks Gatorguy!

You are a true champion!

Plus the OS is the very intuitive and the easiest to operate I have seen in a long time not to mention beautiful. It's a very attractive phone and everyone has an iPhone today so why not stand out a little. It also comes in 5 different colors, pretty neat. All of people I know who want iPhone's anyway are now waiting for Apple to come out with a larger screened model and an updated system both of which I hope will be out this year.

My Sister was actually here in the hospital today to visit me and she asked me which phone she should get to replace her iPhone 4 as the screen is cracked. After 20 minutes of her playing with my phone I'm happy to report she's going to pick up a Galaxy Note in the morning. Which makes that number 14, the number of people I have now converted from an iPhone to a Galaxy Note and not one of them miss their iPhones.

It's funny to, they are all girls. Is the Galaxy Note a women's phone, I hereby now claim it to be. Seriously though we all love that huge screen to show off pictures of our kids and using it with long fingernails is much easier not to mention we have a stylus.

I believe the subject matter of that post was the intensely laser-like accuracy of your judgement, not BMW specifically.

However, I understand your willingness not to refer to your earlier statements.

I wouldn't be too anxious to 'recall' them either.

You're barking up the wrong tree. I tried to get the thread on track two dozen posts ago with post 128. Then again with post 132. Then again with post 134.

Inexplicably GTR and Jragosta thought it best to derail it again 25 posts later.

Nonesense..
Samsung's R&D produced the high-end technology that goes into wonderful gadgets like the iPhone.

The quality of iphone's components is there because of Samsung.

You think Samsung = Foxconn... you're a fool.

Samsung isn't great at product designs, I'll give you that but there are some unique exceptions like
Galaxy Note.

You are RIGHT, it's great that Apple's reaping the rewards for its great products but

their incredibly high PROFIT MARGIN isn't great for us CUSTOMERS who pay a hefty PRICE TAG for the gadgets.

They're worth well over $500 BIL.. you think they give a flying eff about us Apple customers?

I already stated it was driver error.

However, my experience with racing and seeing which type of drivers wreck cars its usually the guys in the M3's or similar cars. Vehicles that are very highly rated in their class that people buy simply because the M3 always wins the performance sedan shootouts in the magazines. This causes these people to be more likely to over extend their abilities simply because they have a false sense of how superior their car is.

It's the same with SUV drivers who seem to think they can drive normal speeds on snowy or icy roads since their SUV is more "capable" than the average car.

This was all explained a few pages back. How can you say their prices are "hefty" when their most popular products (iPhone and iPad) are priced similarly to other competing products on the market?

It's not Apple's fault that they are far more efficient at making products than everybody else is.

You better believe they care about customers. If you treat your customers like $hit then you will soon find your customers going to your competitors. Treating your customers well and providing them with products they like is what put all that $$$ in Apple's pockets in the first place.

Those are just assertions made by the plaintiff. Trial has yet to officially start or the final verdict has been announced.

Perhaps some reading comprehension is in store for you.

READ.


Hyundai isnt the organization who creates these values. It's a third party who creates it and reports in their publication. Hyundai is just reporting through their communications channels. I expected better from you. I guess I was wrong.

By the way, Beamer drivers are all posers. They cant drive for crap and they never use turn signals. Lazy bums who would rather die than lift a finger to indicate their intent to others.

You seem to be so assured of your predictions.

People and companies change. With the forward momentum of Hyundai and the changing times, it seems like it is leaving behind your old way of thinking in the 1990's. Just to remind you, its the year 2012.

I've heard countless critics who boasted that "Hyundai will never make it in the US" or "Hyundai will never break 500,000 sales in the US". Both predictions were slashed to bits. I'm afraid yours is next.

Plus, Hyundai just recently announced that they had the lowest incentive spending in the industry of less than $1000. Also, their fleets sales have dipped down below 10% in recent months.

Also, here is another treat to your "resale/residual value" bashing.

Customer retention is not really a very helpful statistic.

Let's say you're in the market for a $40,000 car. You have a lot of options to choose from - and even a lot of comparable options. If I want a good quality, comfortable, mid-sized sedan for $40,000, I have a dozen or more choices.

OTOH, if you 'only' have $60 K to spend and want a full blown luxury vehicle, the Equus may be your only choice. Even on the low end, Hyundai vehicles are generally priced considerably lower than most of the competition. So 'high customer retention' may simply mean 'our customers are consistently looking for a cheap car and we don't have as much competition in that space'.

That's not to say that Hyundai vehicles are bad. They certainly seem to offer decent value in the markets where they compete. But you can't really use customer retention as evidence of that.

SOME Korean products are cheaper copycat versions of the real thing. But pretending that is true often enough to use it as an overriding rule is just plain wrong.

Using cars as an example is not a very useful starting point. AFAICS, all of the car manufacturers look like each other - at least partly because of the recent push toward better fuel economy which requires the best aerodynamics they can produce. Look at Motor Trend or Car and Driver's reviews where they compare 5 or 6 cars in each category. Without reading the caption, I find it hard to tell which is which - which is a far cry from when I was growing up. Back then, the cars were different enough that you could tell at a glance which was which. And, often, there were design clues that would give you a pretty good idea of the manufacturer even if you had never seen the car before. But it's not limited to the Koreans.

You really need some serious work on your reading comprehension buddy.

So in your mind, those 55" OLED TVs are also "COPYCAT" versions too right? It's never done before. As long as its Korean, even if it was never done before, its a copy cat.

I personally think you have something against Koreans in general. You are filled with hatred against a nationality. You should get help. School is the first step.
