he, like most people, doesn't care.
As someone who worked extensively in a customer facing role for a consumer electronics retailer, I think you might be a little confused with what the term "most people" means.
Believe whatever you want. It is wholly like slashdotters to ridicule mainstream consumer electronics, popularly held opinions, and products that hold form over function. The target audience of this site is anything but the "average consumer". So when the lot of you hivemind and mistakenly believe that "since others around me in a controlled environment believe the same thing I do, i must be right", you move ever further and further away from reality into your own bubble.
