Windows After ditching its Windows RT tablets from the US market, Samsung has now also confirmed to Heise.de it's going to stop selling them in Germany and several other European countries. The company cites lack of interest from consumers and confusion over what Windows RT is. Combined with the massive discounts Microsoft is now giving to OEMs, the writing is on the wall here: Windows 8 - specifically on tablets but also in general - is turning into a failure.

phoenix,

"IOW, ads affect your buying decisions."

There's a difference though, ssokolow was consciously deciding how to factor ads into his buying decisions.

I guess you could say there is a 2d matrix:

Conciousness -> low - high
Influence -> negative - positive

Thom's assertion was that people who were not conscious of the ad still had positive influence from it. ssokolow claimed high consciousness of the ad gives him negative influence towards it. For myself, I have high consciousness of ads I've seen and have neutral influence from them.

I have trouble with advertising for my self because I have trouble fitting into the shoes of people who are receptive towards advertising. I'll see something that has no affect on me and I have no idea if it could work on other people.
