Re: That probably explains..

It is not a premium product... Well, if you define premium as something expensive that people want, yes, then it is. But neither of those two qualities are determined on how well made or useful a product is. Humans are exceptionally bad at assessing the value of something, we are however social and thus cheat by assessing what value other humans put on things. Why money works, marketing is more vital than engineering and capitalism doesn't really work (not saying that anything else works either).

So, premium in the sense that they are good at marketing, but not premium as in they are good at engineering.

MrK's law: The quality of a product is inversely proportional to the number of colours on the box.
