How about an actual rebuttal with a little maturity? Have you worked in advertising? Any experience in how fast these things are put together and rushed in front of the consumer? Look at the first Siri commercial. Would you call that lying, or just advertising?
And by the way, in the US, there is very little to truth in advertising... We can call products "Industrial Strength", when they are not used by any industry but in consumers households. Tools can be labeled "Professional", or "Heavy Duty", when they are far from. The product can have "Carbon" in its name and a carbon fiber pattern printed on it,, when it is not made out of carbon fiber. Unless it specifically states that it has something that it doesn't, there's no lie. Since there are no standards for what really makes something industrial strength, but yet can be sold to the public in local stores, to anyone, it can be called that. No standard for what actually makes a tool professional or heavy duty, it can be called that. And having a name including carbon, does not mean it is made out of a carbon composite, so it can be named that.
And in this instance, no where does it state the images are to scale So assuming so is just consumer stupidity or blind patriotism to another product, rushing in to defend it over the stupidest thing and making a scandal out of nothing. If you go to the link, you'd see by clicking through every one of the comparison products, that 3 of the 4 were scaled up to the same size, while each one being a different length x width total dimensions. If you think that they are misleading you by making 3 products the same size, and the forth, being actually the largest (the HP), into the smallest, then you really need to set your pad down, walk outside, and take a deep breath and chill out.
