But the pop-up interface didn't react only to nearby hand gestures. It also reacted to cars passing, dogs barking, or it might simply pop-up if I was watching TV, and thinking "God, it would be fucking annoying to have the pop-up interface appear right now." I searched online for a way to disable the damned thing - and the only working solutions involved cracking open the casing itself, and disconnecting wires.
Like I said - the picture and sound were fine. No complaints. But the fact that Vizio shipped a model with such a godawful buggy feature that could not be disabled is unforgivable in my book.
IIRC, my '01 Honda Accord was built in the U.S. Has about 175K on it, probably good for another 125K. And it has a cassette player in it! I get play my cassettes I've had for 30 or so years.
It doesn't do anything for "made in the US" though. It doesn't bring "back" any jobs that were outsourced.. and no Trump will change that either.
And "made in the US", if available or possible to bring back, is usually coming at a higher pricetag.. and therefore is a burden for the low / middle income again.
What I take issue with is the carelessness of your posts, and i'd like to see us reflect on that, and to actively work more towards factual conversations, than such hyperbole statements. because that's the only way we will EVER be able to have an actual dialogue and conversation, that either side can participate in and benefit from.
As a foreigner, I do not buy often American, because not so many American products are available. It is not a problem of price, nor is it a problem of custom duties, it is more a problem of how American products are adjusted to what foreign consumers are asking for. I have often the feeling that American manufacturers are not flexible enough to adapt to foreign markets, when labor is probably cheaper in the US than in many other developed countries of Northern Europe. I am puzzled by this situation, because an American car is in the US is much cheaper than a Mercedes or an Audi. Of course other American products may be interesting but not so much manufactured ones. There is probably also a problem about quality with American products. It is a surprising situation because it would be probably possible to export more from the US but many do not see the opportunity to do so, because they are not export minded.
