"bad science"

I am fairly neutral on the whole "future of Sony" thing. Yes I have some concerns but that is offset by the fact that i have a system that i am happy with.

However the stats quoted eg Amazon and DPR clicks are not representational and although they may indicate a trend (and I am fully prepared to admit they may do) without any backup information they are, at best, limited or at worst flawed and should not be taken as definitive. Take the DPR clicks, I think its reasonable to assume that most people using this site have a fair amount of interest in what's going on and this would, crucially, include other brands, particularly in respect of new products. I dont know what period the sample of Dpr clicks or the Amazon stats are taken over but this could be a factor as is the fact that the majority of users of the site are english and american which would again slew the figures.

By all mean quore these figures but just dont rely on them as being the last word.
