KFC is yummy! I love all junk food tongue sticking out smiley

As for branding, it is all based on experience and preference. I buy on what I prefer and the percieved quality of a product. If a shoe fits well and is comfortable, then I will buy it.

Was not aimed at you, mac fanboys are just generally a good example for this type of behavior as they are well known to be particularly rabid tongue sticking out smiley

Will only buy hitecs. Been wearing the same pair for 8 years now. Wear them all the time and they're still going strong. In fact I'm wearing them now. Last pair I had also lasted ages and I climbed Kilimanjaro in them and they were still 100%. Don't know if they're the best but I like them smile

As for jeans. Stone harbour. Had a couple of pairs of levi's and they ripped within a year. Pathetic. Stone harbour last longer and are a fraction of the price. Don't care if they're not fashionable...

Guess I pretty much choose on personal experience. Am very unforgiving when things go wrong though.

BTW current pet hate is autopage. The worst service on the planet and they charge extra for it!!!!

I really don't think all brands are bad. It had to be good to become a well known brand. Even if you don't buy a branded item. If enough people buy the same item that you buy, it may also become a well known brand. Pesonally I prefer Diesel Jeans and when it comes to pc's I would argue in favour of Intel and Nvideasmile

Just because enough people buy a brand does not make it necessarily good, well-known yes.
well-known != good

just always remember how important a brand is for a company, they would protect it at all costs, which means you have more leverage when there is a dispute.

"brand" might be important to the company... but I've found that "brand" isn't always that important to the company's employees. I think that is one of the major shortfalls of managers (in general), the emphasise, motivate and create a culture of "brand-proudness" among employees.

It just as if they could care less!

You might be right that some empoyees don't care about their brand, but I'm sure the guys at Google are proud of their brand, so I think that if your working conditions are good and the product are really good, not just a known brand, then employees will be more willing to become "brand-proud".

HP; Won't buy HP ever again!

My notebook PC was sent in for warrantee repair 3 weeks ago. I still do not have it. They have to order a new battery from overseas, since they do not have one available in SA. I was told not to bother phoning them about when I can get the notebook.

Don't they realise that as a developer my notebook equals my income. Just as well my wife has a PC at home she almost never use.

In another week they are going on Hello Peter.

Ms/Mrs Wazzie,

I believe you may have intended to write "You are wholly correct" or perhaps, for brevity, "You're quite right"; note the correct (contracted) usage of "you are" and non-usage of the tautological "absolutely" (cf. relatively, or absolut vodka).

Thank you and have a good day grinning smiley
