    A new low watermark in style vs. content.
    You could never tell from their website that it wasn't
    a couple of high school kids with a new graphics program.
    I suppose that is one marketing scheme. Let others generate
    the hype for you. Didn't read about anything that hasn't been
    done by others already. I guess they didn't have the cool
    graphics, though.

  3. Exactly and now with "New, improved" mystery meat navigation ! I mean
    WTF are people supposed to make of "Mysterium(r) Format System" ?

    To learn more about "mystery meat" and discover why you should have
    something appropriately descriptive, I point you to the "Web pages
    that suck" site, on which your own design will shortly be featuring :

    http://www.webpagesthatsuck.com/mysterymeatnavigation.html
    LOL I've *worked* with those types ;-))
    Or the pointless flash intro. Or the accessbility sucking graphics
    with no alt text, or any fucking content (moan moan etc etc)

    Cheers - Neil

  4. The people who are behind it, are Oakley, the ones of the
    sunglasses. Apparently their owner is a camerea-geek.

    It all sounds very good, and hopefully it won't be another
    vapourware.

    cheers

    Absolutely spot on. The Oakleys dude clearly knows his marketing. :)

    I've had a lurk on several of the "camera" fora such as DVinfo and DVXuser
    etc and its been really amusing watching the same old characters that appear
    on every forum on the internet spouting speculative bullshit about a camera
    that exists only on a fag-packet. They seem to go from one board to the
    next to conduct exactly the same conversations and debates as they conducted
    on the previous. They are like dogs marking their territories. Don't these
    people work for a living?

    So the so called RED camera. Designed or not, any good businessman knows
    that one doesn't risk ones own money (he hasn't risked any money on the
    website yet!) on a new venture you get investors to share the risk. How do
    you get partners? Why not whip up a little interest. So enlist the help of
    the interweb geeks....

    So this is how business is going to use the so called Web 2.0. RED using
    www.hdforindies.com, you saw it there first!

  6. Well there you go, a smart way of polling the interest in their concept.
    Whether it's always the same people who talk on the wishlists, some of the
    ideas sound good, some less. The silliest thing was suggestions about price
    being sub-US$10k. Yeah right.
    Some high-end camera's have recently come out of the concept-phase and
    turned out to be a real product after all (like the Dalsa D20), other's
    will stay that forever. I think if you market your design well, you'll get
    investors and money to built it. The good thing is that Oakley is not a
    poor company, as otherwise they might be tempted to use the investor's
    money to plug holes in their other budgets.

    cheers

    yeah, the pointless flashy flash into movies that take eons to download and
    for what? "oh, we have a flashy hot new site." but with nothing but a
    bunch of flash movie presentations about absolutely nothing! kids!

    This sounds like the marketing shit that came out of the original Video
    Toaster people.

    I wouldn't buy jack from those smug SOB's.

    the idea here is to have people visit websites so that they can collect
    information (background server task) when they visit the site. moreover,
    some will actually click the pictures to "upsize" them, like we did and sure
    enough there's the little script to get identity info :eek:(
