Your comparason to dotcoms is silly. They never produced a product and you say yourself that "dotcoms that had never made a dime saw their stock prices going through the roof." Harley is not only making the "dime". but also produces an actual product. Dotcoms were a whim, much like your FLHT dream! LOL
My, how you somehow twisted what I said. Tell me the difference between "products" and "durable goods". I don't think there is muc if any, but go for it. Tell me one dotcom that produced ANYTHING. They were service oriented to provide something that was a pipe dream. Ya think that's why it all collapsed? Duh! Maybe "service" and "products" is lost on you. The dealers make money selling PRODUCTS don't they? Maybe I missed something there. HDFS finances PRODUCTS don't they? Did I miss something there too? I've been watching H-D since 1970, and they NEVER have discounted their products. Not even when they were going out of business in the 80's. Never. That is 33 years on my count. they never got cheaper. If you are waiting for that "cheap Harley" you will be waiting a Looooooooog time.
Dot coms never made any software GET IT? That's why they are gone GET IT? They pissed away millions and produced NOTHING, GET IT? Are you ****ying stupid or what? Now you have gone beyond silly and ventured into ****ying stupid land. You never named one dotcom that produced anything, including software. NONE of the dotcoms sold software that I know, and I'm in the business! I love how you want to try to "teach" someone, when you don't know what the hell you are talking about. Software companies produce software, and dotcoms are service organizations, hence the name "DOT ****YING COM"!. Internet services, GET IT? Now go buy your FLH for $500 bucks or whatever your wet dream is.
Todd Defren, managing director of high-tech public relations firm Sterling Hager's San Francisco office, tries to sort out this dotcom quagmire. "'dotcom' means a company that relies on eyeball traffic to the Web site in order to generate revenues and be viable," he says. "That model has not proven to be very effective, except for maybe the early pioneers like the Yahoo!s of the world that themselves are facing trouble."
Doesn't seem like you are prepared for anything except acting like a dunb f&ck. Successfully pissed us off? You just looked like a moron is all. If you didn't stand up, we couldn't hear a word you were saying. Please stay on your VFR. Being a dumb ass, that Honda fits you perfectly.
I take everything you say as a compliment from someone too ignorant to know when he is DEAD WRONG. You never said what your so-called company produced, so I ASSUME it was nothing tangible. My arguments may lack lots of things, but never the truth. Maybe you need to start with something that made sense in the first place before you opened your uninformed mouth.
Gee I have to leave cause you said so? Now ask me if I give a shyt what you think. You say stupid stuff you get a stupid response. Free speech is a bytch, ain't it? I'd assume since you got your feelings hurt by being uninformed, or just plain ignorant, you need us to go away to feel better about yourself. How about worrying about yourself and I'll take care of myself. Or here's a hint. Actually know what you are talking about before writing. Hey, now there's a novel idea, eh?
