[OCN] Creative's fall from glory - Page 53

Creative began as a computer repair shop, where instead of repairing products they installed buggy drivers instead Sim developed an add-on memory board for the Apple II computer. Later, they started creating customized PCs adapted for the Chinese language. A **** language for **** parts. A part of this design included enhanced audio capabilities, so that the device could produce speech and melodies. The success of this audio interface led to the development of a stand-alone sound card. The start of the failure known as creative.

I love my Zen V Plus which doesn't work at all anymore.

People DON'T have issues. Creative sucks and the driver coders.

I can't seem to install Creative's own applications (the tool that 'fixes' crashed players - they crash like every 3rd time I turn them on), and I can't install the drivers and importing apps in Vista, so that I can convert videos for my Zen V Plus, I could just copy files into it.

Thank you for saying that.

Yeah, Ill bet if Falcon NW figured out I was building computers with their cases, slapping an a Falcon NW badge on the front, and using their software all while making a profit, they would be a little pi553d.
