They didn't like the homophone that would be used.
By showing bad panda errors instead of the image requested for months so you get people who want to avoid your site at all costs? Yeah, that's how to court users.
That just isn't true. German supermarkets in the UK sell a lot products made in Germany at slightly higher prices than the really cheap Chinese stuff. Tools, gardening equipment, furniture, clothing etc. People are happy to pay a bit more for quality.
Absolutely. When a quality American-made product is available that isn't outrageously more expensive, I go with the American made product. Some examples that I've bought in the last year: floor mats, yard rakes, snow shovels, kids toys... When you compare the quality of the Fisher Price toys that were made in America vs. the ones made overseas the difference is staggering. It is a real shame that they went the Chinese route when Little Tykes can made damn good stuff here for about the same price. Also, I'd rather have a shovel or a rake built to last for years that is twice as a expensive as a cheap Chinese piece of crap that will break after one season of heavy use and force you to go out and buy a replacement mid-task.
Alternatively, these stories are publicized and spread because we have developed an effective strategy against this approach and WANT someone to think we can't win against them.
Pretty much matches my experience. The Windows 7 experience is so good, I have no real desire to spend a lot of time making something else work. Additionally my experience with desktop Linux, even Ubuntu has been no where as good as Windows 7.
Shame we don't have a tax structure in place that actually allows us to do what we did back in the 50's and 60's when it was all built. Maybe we should look at what we were doing differently back then.
Not to mention they have an SR-71 at the Intrepid. Shuttle makes a nice addition to that.
