Think how big Newegg is and think of the amount of spam/troll emails they'll get.

They won't realise anything has happened until someone points it out - try searching "Newegg Creative"...when it gets near the top THEN they'll realise.

The net is a big place.

Have a question? Feel free to PM.

Creative ought to stick to their mp3 players, my zen vision m is a winner by far. I bet the same goes for the new zen.

But can it run Crysis?

I did enough tracking on this (wasted my whole day ) that I changed the title to OCN for the source since I was the first to catch the Newegg post in the Creative thread (look and see, I replied first)

Can't get too excited though... it is sad really; I will miss Creative, but never again

we'll find out if it's a hoax tomorrow.

However, GREAT READ!

Even if it is a hoax, it gives us a pretty good idea of the "backlash" (the term used earlier) the company is facing from the customers.

It's about time, my Audigy 4 under Vista is as about as stable as a one legged table. Crashes all the time, and forces me to restart. Burn in hell for all I care.

wow, i am sort of glad i am using oxygen HD and not soundblaster (i switch for the dts encoding feature)

WHY IS THERE NO NEWEGG IN CANADA.

well, i guess we'll see tomorrow if that's true or not. If newegg really pwns creative then they're really pwned.

I'm gonna get rid of this creative card and get that razer barracuda. It looks nice and they actually have vista support.
