I love Analog even tho Im a short chick and nothing they make really fits me

I am an audio engineer and my first job I ever had was aligning 24 track analog tape machines. I used to deal with reels of tape all day...

I love love love how easy pro tools is is but I'm glad that I started my career before the digital days.

I like to hate on Lib Tech, even though I want some of their boards.

I like Technine though, even though a lot of people hate them. Maybe because it's my first board, even though the board wasn't even that great. Sentimental value there.

Same with BMWs... And most Mercedes drivers I've met. My sister had a 325 and I drove it, turned into an asshole...

Love:

Volcom
Electric
Thirty-Two
Never Summer
Honda
Toyota
Keen
Target
Dogs
Saucer Wax
Osprey
REI
PC

Hate:

Technine
K2
Cops
Mazda
Nike
Wal-Mart
Those Can-am bassackwards trikes for ppl who can't ride bikes? WTF - don't tell me it safer lol!
Cats
Apple

American truck companies left out (I'd never buy a car from them ) cuz I'm pretty ambivalent about all of them. Dad raised me to love Chevy and hate cats, but the Ford f-150 has been absolutely gorgeous for the last 5 years or so, and its pricepoint vs a smaller toyo is compelling. I have never and likely will never own a Dodge, but they look alright, and I won't argue with Jeeps reputation as a stock off road vehicle.

I have lots of reasons for everything in this list, but the OP says "NO".

Suffice it to say the the group in the first column are all awesome and can do no wrong. Big Ups!

The 2nd group can chew on a bag of dicks while dieing in a fire. Fuck them

I also hate on DaKine for no reason, gloves kept me warm and bags held my gear well.

Some more I hate for no apparent reason- Battaleon, Smith, Arbor, Gnu (Lib is my fav), anything Burton (even though I'm trying desperately to get a particular Analog outfit right now!), Rome

Likes for no rational reason- Grenade, Yes, Union (only like one binding in the whole line and I'd never ride it), Lobster (funny when you consider my dislike for Battaleon!)

Companies that treat their existing customers worse than a new customer (cellphone plans, cable/satellite, etc.)

Companies that charge outrageous prices for replacement parts and then threaten to void the warranty if you don't use their OEM part (it's illegal and it's called tying)

Companies that constantly try to upsell you on extended warranties, "paint protection" and other crap.

Companies who don't put prices on their websites (call for a free quote!) I'm surfing for a free quote...I'm not going to call and be put on hold as well!

Companies who try to lock you into their entire product line by deliberately making it incompatible with anything else (Burton bindings, car rim bolt patterns, etc.)

Companies who never respond to their website's "contact us" email address or just reply with a link to their website's FAQ.

And especially....

Any place that will make you stand in line to wait your turn for service and then will answer the phone to deal with another customer. Hello! Live client standing here! Put them on hold until it's their turn!

Lots of companies making good products lose me as a customer doing the above.

Conversely, I've bought a lot of bad product because of a good buying experience.

Apple does this. Tied to iTunes? No thanks... the Burton binding issue doesn't really bother me. After setting up my GFs 4x4 bindings again the other day and having to compromise between to hole positions (a little toe or a little heel overhang) it reminded me why EST/ICS/Channel is better. Plus if you buy a non-EST binding you can use it on ANY board (channel, 3D, and 4x4)

My GF's got a Galaxy SII and it's not all that it's cracked up to be. I have faster internet searches, less reboots, and better website loads on my Nokia N8 with its "horribly outdated" symbian OS.

Agree with the twitter. Twitter is for twits. Almost deleted my facebook account a few times but it's great for keeping in touch with my family from all over the place. I have 35 friends if that shows my facebook usage lol...
