On the other hand, if you really don't understand how that sentence would be taken by others - that the product is not for "smart people (like you)" - then I'd suggest it's time for some basic courses in communication.
There are all sorts of good reasons someone may not want to purchase this item. I believe I have several myself for why I wouldn't buy it at the moment. But there are also some perfectly fine reasons someone may wish to buy one, if it suits their lifestyle and solves certain issues they want solved, in the ways they want it solved.
imagic (mark) has done, I think, a very good job discussing the product with an understanding that this product has features desirable enough to compel some people to want it, while it does not suit the needs of others.
It doesn't help to bring braggadocio into one's assessment, with implications about the intelligence of others who might have good reasons to buy one.
No no, don't look any further than you have to. I spoke for me, and that is it. I'm smart enough to realize that this product is not for me.
I don't imply anything else. I look @ the build quality, the $2,500 sticker price, and that's enough.
* I'm going to make it clear, so that there is no confusion:
People who are wise enough like me to see that there are many things amiss with this product and its related features,
they simply are going to dismiss it all together.
This thread is very clear on that.
As for other people; the ones interested by the product, they use their own wisdom according to their own needs. It don't mean anything else than that.
I don't think of others interested in the product as not smart.
