Your Least Wated 2006
« on: February 20, 2006, 12:50:39 am »
Black list your most hated products or services that you've used for the past year!

I start off with... Sony!

Why?

1) Not supporting the Macintosh with Sonic Stage, their Music "management" system.
2) Sonic Stage sucks anyway
   1) It doesn't manage music at all. It just whores Sony. I can't edit tags en-masse, I have to do each one. Seperately.
   2) It crashes when I upload podcasts. What, is the large MP3 file too big for you? Diddums...
   3) For crying out loud, wouldn't it be easier to just let you drag and drop into a folder and the drivers sort it out on the MP3 player side?
3) Rootkits. Enough said.
4) Crappy attitude to product design. http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/comic.php?d=20051104 <-- I SWEAR they actually do this >=(

I have to second that Sony call. Mostly for Sonic Stage being a clunky, awful piece of shit.

Oh, and the PS2 not being able to survive a 3 foot drop.

No, I think everyone hates Sony as of this decade :P Don't get me wrong, Sony used to be awesome. I have two top of the range MiniDisc Walkmans, a WEGA TV, a MD Mini Hi Fi and a Vaio laptop. Now? Awful piece of shit :)

Also, if someone could change my idiotic typo in the thread title, it would be much appreciated :)

It's not like I'm seriously complaining, nobody important is ever going to read this. You can be cool and hip by hating corporations, but it's fun to poke fun and bitch about stuff you have encountered first hand. That's when it actually becomes a valid point to make.
Besides, the only reason Sony don't improve their products is because people still buy them. Idiots like me. But if Sony wants to be the market leader again, it's going to have to innvate regardless of sales.


Isn't there anything that has completely wound you up this year?

The worst thing about playstation 2 is that noone seems to know where the on/off switch is... In school I seem to be the only one that actually turn it off...
Though, people are quite bad at turning off xbox 360 and tv's also so...

But that's offtopic...
hmm... Can't think of any bad gadgets I've bought lately...

But I didn't start disliking BioWare and chocolate and Elder Scrolls this year :P

SonicStage sucks? Don't use it. I don't.
PS2 can't be dropped from high up? Don't drop it. I have one of the original batch (you know, the ones with the faulty lasers and crap) and it still works perfectly.
They pull crap at E3? I really don't care as long as the final product works the way it's supposed to. And if it doesn't, I won't buy it.

I didn't drop the PS2. I tripped over the controller wires (get a wireless controller) slight problem, they're crappy.

Haha, I've done that too.

cba spending money on a wireless controller though, and all the third-party ones for PS2 suck anyway..

Well, I wouldn't mind using an alternative to Sonic Stage if there was one. I know they exist, but they're nowhere near as comprehensive as the ones on offer for the Creative players. I hate Sonic Stage, but I don't hate it so much that I'd use a program that has not been tested for the NW-HD 3.
I hate to say it, but I will be getting an iPod sometime this year. I hate going with the most popular technology, but it's the best supported player for the PC or Macintosh.
