F**k you, consumers!

F**k you, consumers!
A chilling tale of how cartels were born, and consumers were left out in the cold and the rain; how companies want you to believe you want something you don't need and how you're getting scr**ed over by unscrupulous manufacturers.

My first impression when I encountered September 2012 cover while scrolling through FB wall was that of shock. It led me to double check the authenticity of the post and to confirm that it was from the official page! Despite the fact that the cover took me my surprise I am not sure if I should see it in the negative light. As the explanation by Mr. Robert himself stated how screwed up some companies are to take its consumer base for granted.

In light of the recent breakouts for the injustice and corruption in India, it's a high time that we take this fight to the next level. The level of the "corporates". After all earning money (though legal ways) is a hard nut to crack. And to get the best value out of that green is every consumers right. Almost every consumer including me have faced the prying eyes of these corporates before we buy something from them, which leads straight to the sheer ignorance of cries of help when we want to claim warranty or just basic troubleshooting.

This cover is a bold step to garner attention of such corporates which may lead to some amount of criticism and opposition but definitely more support and inquisitiveness from the consumers who want these corporates to realize the true power of the "general public".

As a regular buyer of every digit issue from news stands I would be eager to buy this special issue more than ever before! :p

NO! Such negligence on your part will not go unpunished! No spinfusor for you! :evil:

Seriously though, don't worry about it. We all forget to follow the instructions from time to time. :wink:
