The onion news network have out done themselves with this video dig at major vendors who release less than ideal products – and at us – the poor consumers who make mistake of lapping up poor user experience (UX). One particular well known brand is the target but I think it is clearly a dig at the wider issue and the industry.
Beware there is a little bad language in the sound track!
Well done ONN.
A shout out to the team at optimal usability – probably one of the best UX teams on the planet for bring this to my attention.
This market is playing with our future like a dog with a ball.
Consider that one year ago RBS paid $100bn for ABN Amro. That seemingly impossible amount would now buy:
Morgan Stanley $10.5bn
Goldman Sachs $21bn
Merrill Lynch $12.3bn
Deutsche Bank $13bn
And still leave $8bn change……with which you would be able to pick up GM, Ford, Chrysler and the Honda F1 Team.
I am not sure where this original data came from but I just received it from a colleague and it seems pretty accurate… and scary because I think this global financial crisis (or GFC as it is increasingly being called) is just getting started. Depressing sure but better to know and be prepared…
I am suggesting people should consider buying gold.
