Calculated and logical reasons would be wonderful...
Beats lovers trolling was brought up, to which I'd generally suggest ignore them. Someone calls you a hater? There is no reason to pay attention to them. They are not worth your time, energy or heartache (just an expression, I don't mean that anyone feels anguish over it.)
No, I did not take your statement to an illogical conclusion thoughtcriminal. What you said in essence was that even thought many companies fleece there customers, which you acknowledge is wrong, getting upset over it (earns your ire) only happens if a company gets big like Beats. So you are saying that if a company fleeces customers, which is wrong, but is small, it doesn't earn your ire (get upset.)
"So as long as the company fleeces their customers and never gets that big, who cares? Is this what you're saying?"
Anyways, I am in no respect disagreeing with you about Beats. I find the lack of truth in advertising annoying and manipulative. The main difference is much like you don't feel that advertising lies in bacon bits is not worth complaining about, I generally feel the same about all advertising. I do not expect any sufficiently large group of people to make the right choices, but as I've mentioned before, I am jaded. Lying in advertising is commonplace, and will most likely continue to be so for quite some time.
Conversely, beats can be purchased from everywhere, can be demoed anywhere, and are seem more than any other single headphone line by the general public. Its not hard to form an opinion. Please try to understand and stop putting words in my mouth. Your conclusion is yours, not mine.
