BTW, can we all be friends and not bicker over who said what? And stop the name calling? And foul language? And taking things as personal? And stop making stuff up to support an argument?

Peace to all!

Do you guys think I hit the nail of why Archos is unpopular?

Well, this is certainly a welcome development. Mind you, at 25p per minute it's gonna be an expensive call.

Odd then that I had to end up writing to the top man to get a response to my problems back in June. I couldn't find a UK tech support number anywhere. Plus there's not much use having an email system if it marks everything as spam, but hopefully Archos have sorted that out now. Archos do primarily rely on the retail chain to deal with problems.

If yo go to the Technical Support link and select your device, it should come up with the page I listed above.

Admittedly the 25p/minute is a bit much, but it's another way of companies making money in the UK !!

Damn money-grabby nanny state, but that's for another day :badgrin:

I mean seriously, HP has no future? So they can't survive without Archos. Maybe I'm reading this wrong or I need another cup of coffee.


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :lol:

Although I don't think Henri Crohas wants to sell his company cause he knows his company is worth much more then the current market capitalization, at least not until some cool company like Google might sign a deal that the goals of the company and the teams aren't going to change even if they are acquired. Where the only reasons to being acquired would be to be able to expand the R&D department greatly, work with more developpers, to be able to afford a much larger production capacity more quickly, afford to do more advertising, branding, marketing and afford to do better distribution.
Funny how right I was, Google is now buying hardware companies, they pay $12.5 Billion for Motorola, why not Archos next, they can use Archos prior art to destroy all Apple/Microsoft lawsuits on the Tablet concept and use Archos R&D to design the next Nexus Tablet reference designs for the world.
