You're a ridiculous, abject moron.

No argument.

For the record, the ad-hominem in question was calling Marlin's integrity, intent, and legitimacy into question as your justification for calling his position and opinion unviable and of no value.

Please quote the part of my original comment where I did any of that or even implied any of that.. Otherwise, you may just be full of it.

They didn't buy you at fair value. They said that you could either sell to them at a severe loss, or they would make their own version of your product and put you out of business

Then you weren't worth "fair value". I find it interesting how Microsoft dumped all this money into software firms and all of the replies to my post are complaints that they could have dumped more. Well, it's not their job to do that.

It is AMD fanboy sour grapes. For some reason some people get really personally invested in their choice of graphics card. So when the other company comes out with a card that is substantially better than what their company has, they get all ass hurt and start trying to make excuses as to what it is bad. The nVidia fans did that back when the AMD 5870 came out and nVidia had no response. Same deal here. The GeForce 900 series are a reasonable bit faster than the AMD 200 series, and way more power efficient. At this time, AMD doesn't have a response, so the AMD fanboys are going on the defensive.

The real answer is, of course, buy the card that works best for your usage, which will vary person to person.

n a similar way, around here they are trying to promote the annual flu shot.
You get a free Klondike Bar with your flu shot.

I hear they're bringing them shots right out to the trailer park now. The whole Cuyler clan got them shots, except Early, who said it was all a plot and no goddamn body's gonna give him any flu shot because he don't wanna catch the autism.

Damn Obama...

Did you see the stats for the growth of their middle class over the past 15 years or so?

I'm not disputing that the country is ardently capitalist and has tightly guarded elite circles. But for most people in there, that's not where they are aiming for. What they want is basically just comfortable living, and their standard for it is getting pretty close to what the West enjoys. And with every new generation, there are millions more actually enjoying it - even though there's still hundreds of millions locked out. But for now, the trend is good.

BUT I will say with a company a person can quit or stop purchasing the companies products.

Unless you happen to want to connect to the Internet and you hate the one company in your location that offers broadband connectivity. Oligopolies are the order of the day.
