We are on the late shift here at work and the guys have QVC on. They are intently watching a sales pitch for the Bose acoustic wave II system. £900 for what appears to be a stylised boom box with tiny integrated speakers.
The salesman just got through telling us how you dont hear bass, you absorb it through your skeletal frame. The worst part is the guys are buying it - for some reason, Bose seem to have this 'mythical' reputation amongst the uninitiated that they are a special brand, somehow apart from everyone else. A bit like B&O have managed.
Oh lordy - there onto the wave radio thing. £450 for a cd/radio alarm.
Maybe i'm wrong - does anyone actually LIKE Bose products here? I'm talking about their current consumer range now.
