Today while at the mall I thought I would pop into the Sony style
store and take a look at what they had to offer this Christmas season.
I looked at their HDTV sets and was impressed but don't think I watch
enough tv nor pay DirecTv for a HD feed to justify paying for anything
there, glanced at their VAIO computers but wasn't tempted. Found out
about Sony satnav / gps systems - didn't know they even made them but
don't drive mich and besides, already know how to read a map.
I got to the hifi corner and was mildly amused at all the "works with
iPod" gear they had next to a few token Walkman labeled music players.
Reminded me of the first time you ever saw a Sony branded VHS machine
and how that could not have been a fun meeting to greenlight those
products. I remembered reading about an iPod dock that also was an HD
radio and thought I would see if they had one. I still have yet to
hear any hd programming and thought maybe today I could, besides I
have been thinking more seriously about a speaker and recharging
option for home that didn't involved turning on a computer. . Well, I
couldn't find one nor could I find anyone even remotely interested in
seeing if I was in need of help. Now I have been ignored in Apple
stores but I always have the sense that if I wanted help it would be
easy enough to summon it. Add to that the fact I have always been
greeted when entering Apple's stores while the woman behind the deal
at Sony was busy with some paperwork and didn't even look up when I
picked up one of the mini catalogs near her.
Guess Sony is making enough money to ignore shoppers and potential
buyers. Oh wait, no they aren't.
