Did not know that -- is he "reformed" now?

I'm always impressed oh how practical and well laid out IKEA stores are. I could ramble on and on about it.

The styles and prices are nice too

It was in his teens and he has since apologised, though it's not like he'd have had much choice but to do so given the status he has now. Given that his teens were over 50 years ago and not that long after WWII it's hard to imagine that he didn't have a decent concept of right and wrong, but there you go. It's not the only reson I dislike Ikea, but it tends to work the best if I have to give an example

Well, Sega did make some wacky products and toys before. Have you ever seen that jap comercial with the little robot that throws balls and you hit them, sorta like baseball. They made some weird toys.

Sony for overyhyping everything they release.

Holden Cars (Would be rooted if not for Chev, Opel and Isuzu car companies).

People in suits that think their shit dont stink.

edit: Amd has no ground for the performance price arguement when the new bartons aren't much cheaper compared to comparable Intel chips... dats why i got a good hate on for amd plus there 486,586, + 686 chips sucked! dats when i started to pay good money for good processors.
