Adjust the volume of your speakers to 0.000000000125 before clicking.

If your neighbors are completely deaf, click away.

Is The Onion always that sophomoric and idiotic? Glad I missed it.

Sounds like a pre-pubescent boy's dream of seeing how many
foul words we can stuff into a fake "news report". Click only if
you have nothing better to do with your time.

If they really knew anything about the market they would go after
Monster or one of those companies with no legitimate reason to
be in business. They clearly know nothing about the history of
modern consumer electronics.

I dunno, somebody sent it to me. I thought it was pretty funny.

I think that goes without saying, so I never thought to say it.

What would one need to know about the history of electronics to be
frustrated by some of the poorly functioning and documented consumer
electronics of today?

I think it was meant as satire.

It was grossly foul and offensive. It does not contribute
to polite society to even propogate it.

Perhaps that is what passes for "satire" in high-school today?

There are so many much more richly deserving targets than Sony.
I find Monster's basic raison d'etre and corporate behavior much
more offensive than anything Sony could ever dream of doing.

Yep, I agree with your criticism of Monster totally. What a farce they
have been able to propagate.

So's war, but polite society can't seem to get enough of that, except
for censoring the images so they don't have to look at it.

I can assure you there was no intent on my part to contribute to
"polite society"; I cannot speak for the creators or The Onion.

I dunno. Did you see some high-schoolers in it?

What would one need to know about the history of electronics to be
frustrated by some of the poorly functioning and documented consumer
electronics of today?

<rolls eyes> What kind of rationale is that? No spoofing Apple
because MS is more richly deserving?

Well, nobody sent me a link to your spoof of Monster, so I was at
somewhat of a disadvantage in that regard.

In that case, plonk to you. Don't let the door hit you in the backside.
Annother reason to filter everything from Goooooooooogle Groups.

Unfortunately, for you, a plonk doesn't send me anywhere.

I value your perspectives on video production more than any others,
but you can be rather silly regarding silly issues.

> Annother reason to filter everything from Goooooooooogle Groups.


The delivery method of a message is irrelevant to value.

Oh please...if you must plonk everyone who doesn't fit your definition
of 'polite society' (whatever that is), plonk me too. Once you've
kill-filed everyone, then sit there and be polite to yourself.

Jeez....
