It's kind of like Red Lobster trying to open a restaurant around here. It makes no sense. I want to know when someone is going to open a Wahoo's Fish Tacos in New Hampshire!
I too think Assassin's guides are great. So is this forum. There's a lot of contribution here.
It makes me sad to see attacks on the senior members/frequent contributors, especially accusations of being fanboys when suggesting something tried and true based on experience. It hurts even more to be accused of being biased because someone decided to turn a hobby into a business. It's a lot of work, way more than the very small margin that's left over after shipping, PayPal fees, eBay fees, taxes, more shipping fees, etc. It doesn't cover countless hours answering emails (oftern until 2am), researching, building, experimenting, posting and blogging.
Obviously, there's a love of the hobby and a passion for helping others by sharing knowledge. It's not all about the money -- it can't be -- there isn't any! The reward is when you get an email that says something like, "I bought one of your cases, everything went smoothly, I love how it looks, we're all enjoying our HTPC!"
