first off i did spend some time researching the controlled for car PC thats how i found this lil keyboard, and with so many products available you cant possibly find every single product on the WORLD market and keep up with the updates that are coming out faster than you make holes in your socks.
i thought that this was the latest from lenovo, and accidentally saw a picture of the new remote after i bought the old model.
well i mean seriously.
compare the N5902 and N5901 model of the lenovo remotes.
and you tell me if the upgraded version could have been possible with just a LITTLE BIT more research by lenovo about what consumers want.
check out the video and see for yourself
why are we( consumers) have to be the ones doing research to find what products are worth buying.
no im not talking about doing research to see what product is right for you. im talking about making sure you dont get ripped off.
ultimately i do belive that its not just the company's fault, but the stupid consumer's fault for not organizing, and standing up and telling the comanies to stick their premature born product up the "***".
when you go to car stereo shop, do you expect to walk out of there with only 3 speakers working instead of 4 like they promised?
do you go to tint shop and expect to have light gaps on your windows?
do you go to buy a brand new 2012 80,000 dollar car and expect it to come with a tape player instead of MP3 capable navigation system?
probably not, but you saying its OK to buy products with obvious design flaws that should have been taken care of during research and development?
i mean the first thing that i noticed is the lack of backlight, the loose trackball and lack of scroll bar.
i guarantee that the people that tested it also probably figured that out but fro whatever reason did not change the design or improve it.
instead they just released it to the market and then made a NEW AND IMPROVED version of same remote with all the features that were missing from first one.
that way lenovo probably didnt spend sht on research. instead, we now have to spend twice the amount of cash to buy another remote.
thats what i call BS upgrade, a dishonest company, taking advantage of stupid consumers, whose fault is that? both the company's for beeing greedy and dishonest.
and consumers for beeing lame couch potatos unable to fight back and tell a company that their ****ty product is not worth the money he paid for it.
the problem we have is people taking sides.
you re a business owner 9-5 and you expect people to pay more for your labor/product
then you get off work and go to wallmart and complain about price increase on your favorite pair of 20 dollar shoes that are now 22 dollars.
thats double standard and it doesnt do anything besides creating imbalance between consumer and business.
i have a budget too,not very hard for me to imagine lol very small budget sometimes.
and thats another reason why we "the tech savvy" or whateer the name is, people are the worst enemies of companies because we can interfere and tell a noob customer not to buy something because theres a better choice available.
which should be a salesman's job, thats why they are called "sales assistants" so they can help a customer to find what he needs, and use their knowledge of the product to pick the best choice for the customer, not sell him whatever much they can.
but unfortunately i dont think its possible in present world.
