Sad to say that humans are sometimes so ignorant that you would want to flush their heads down into the toilet bowl. Though everyone in this country has the freedom of speech but everyone too has their limitations to accept certain opinions on certain issues. I hope that I am the one who can stand strong on my stand and not easily influenced by others. Seeing these morons arguing and criticizing on a forum is really unacceptable. Perhaps I should call it as a debate rather than a forum!!
Nowadays, people are so busy that they don't even have time for a good meal during breaks. None the less, I guess many people are spending much lesser time at shopping centers and starting to go for online shopping for convenience sake. Besides, with these social e-commerce companies which are growing like mushrooms after the rain giving out tempting offers, definitely more people will be attracted to buy stuffs which are priced much lower than the actual market price. But as you observe, most of the deals are mainly to promote something which is new in the market. Not only that, they actually want you to be aware of these and promote to others once you have tried it. Alright, so that's the good point of online shopping.
But the bad part is many people are involved in your buying decision. For example, they will put in 101% of effort to criticize something which they don't like it or they have bad perception about it. Like something which happened recently, many people were actually provoked by the minorities (who doesn't want to watch the movie) when this movie was on screened and then they came up with this "Go and watch the movie "Nasi Lemak 2.0" first before you criticize"! Haha. Just like I always like to say, "You wouldn't know if you don't try!" When we talk about "Early adopters", they are either daring enough to try new things or they always want to be "updated" and be with the trend. But most people are actually "Early or Late majority" whereby they will only buy and support the product when they are really stable in the market. It is alright if everyone keeps their mouth shut but it is a havoc when the majority starts criticizing and influence the purchasing decision of an early adopter.
Sometimes people do not realize how ignorant they (the majorities) are but hopefully they can respect others' decision. I hate the most when they say, "Cannot expect more for a cheap china brand tablet." but the vendor replied "The brand NXXXXXX is registered in the United States. Adidas, Nike and some other famous brand are also made in China but they are of good quality." And another one from my friend....
Haha. So don't be easily influenced by others if you have done your on research in the market. Trust your own instinct to buy and take it as a lesson when it really goes wrong. Enjoy and have a nice day..
