For any similar issue exploded, I believe that we should firstly determine what is the meaning of the term market

I understand that the market is: the laws, the corporations, the resellers from one side (supply) and the individuals (retail) and the businesses (demand). The market is the result of the interaction of the 2 worlds.

in the modern western free world, where the political power is being exercised though democratic elections, the supply is being controlled not to form oligopolies, and the business environment is the most liberal and mature that our world has. In such an environment, supply and not political or other interests, act within modern business strategies. These strategies try to drive demand. Yes they try. They decide to try. They are free to decide to try. And they try so as to be alive and prosper as competition in free modern economies is fierce. If they do not try their best they will die. This environment brought to us the dslrs.

in the modern western free world, the demand is free to decide. And it decides within the liberal paradigm. That means that the demand can compare products and services. Demands warranty, reliability, specs publications, clarity. The demand environment is so free it can even buy shares of the supply! It can even educate itself with online resources as this site, In order to review and count the supply’s outcome. This demand made toshiba sale its laptop business. Or one can say that Toshiba was not competitive enough, because competition of supply to convince gave the power of choice to demand to terminate a Pc brand.

The supply cannot convince the demand for anything that the demand is not willing to be convinced. especially at multinational level. Competition does not allow it by default. The actual king is the customer. And the customer needs to have companies alive.
Otherwise, anyone “blaming” companies for doing their job, should blame them for bringing in the market dslrs , yes the exact same dslrs that now some people claim that the companies try to “kill”.

That’s life and that’s market. Complex but so straight forward that there is no room for manipulation.

I believe the markets today is a view of democracy. With its flaws, still I’m glad it’s evolving naturally as people decide, either being at the supply side or the demand one.

So the entire point of your post is that in free markets, customers, not suppliers, drive demand? While I'd agree with that basic premise (if that is your main point), suppliers often make new markets where demand doesn't yet exist, creating the opportunity for new demand.

As an aside, your anthropomorphic and idiomatic writing style made your point extremely difficult to discern. If English is your second language, that's understandable.
