    Just the fact that owners from all over the world can communicate flaws and glitches and hardware updates with there products with each other must make the return / service department's cringe. Years ago you could have had a defect on a product and think its normal, but now with these internet forums they can't get away with anything really. Good for us bad for them! :D

    meh; it probably has as much bearing as people who complain about spelling in forums.

    No need for coughing dear, The reason it looks misspelled on the header is because I used the * and ran out of line space so the E dropped off.

    Many large companies have drastically scaled back tech support and customer service reps, and have stopped providing comprehensive product manuals. Now, instead of handling many of problems themselves, they point people to these forums that allow end-users of their product to trouble shoot for them.

    You reap what you sew.

    I'd imagine employees of HTC, Samsung, Nokia etc probably read these forums, and others like it. Not necessarily all the time, but I'd bet at least a few of them have had a browse. What counts is if they actually bother to note the problems people have posted with the brand that applies to them.
