    Blind loyalty and nationalistic calls such as does not make sense. After all, I find that Creative has gone too far this time. Surely they can be more creative than suing their competitors

    Its success has also made its previously humble CEO extremely cocky. I remember clearly his statement last year

    http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stori...127025/1/.html

    "But even with this kind of some marketing spending, not to the extent of what I want to spend, we're actually receiving huge response, huge demand to our products already. And that's what we're doing, and that's with some marketing -- not a lot yet -- and the big show is still coming."

    And his comments on the Ipod Shuffle is reaaly too cocky for his own good

    Said Mr Sim, "Actually, to me it's a big let-down: we're expecting a good fight but they're coming out with something that's five generations older. It's our first generation MuVo One product feature, without display, just have a (shuffle feature). We had that -- that's a four-year-old product.

    "So I think the whole industry will just laugh at it, because the flash people -- it's worse than the cheapest Chinese player. Even the cheap, cheap Chinese brand today has display and has FM. They don't have this kind of thing, and they expect to come out with a fight; I think it's a non-starter to begin with."

    1. It's not a personal attack.

    2. The sad thing is that when you leave this world, you don't have someone bearing your surname to leave your company and your legacy to.

    Gimme a solid reason why SG should support Creative, I dunno how proud people can be of a company that floods the market to come out with a half baked winner. I am with Apple on this one. Time to knock some sense into Creative`s management.

    Whether you like it or not, Creative is a son of Singapore. Even if you dont like the products or the company or the management, etc .... it is time we Singaporeans should gather together our fullest support to this Son who has done our country proud for so many years.
    Wherever we go, at least we can see some signs or products of Creative, and we should really be proud of that, even if you hate the products or designs so much. Just imagine, if Creative is a Malaysian or Thai or Indonesian company, I think i still prefer that it is a Singaporean baby!
    From now on, being a Singaporean, I am going to support a true Singaporean's Company!
    Come join me in this nationalistic call ... think Creative!
