Let me preface this by saying that I am not a Bose Basher (I have never taken the time to listen to them to be honest). In the March 4th issue of BusinessWeek on page 12 they have a small bit that was titled "The List Ol'Reliable". In it they had asked consumers to develop a list of the highest quality brands. The list was as follows: 1. Craftsman Tools 2. Waterford Crystal 3. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars 4. Discovery Channel 5. WD-40 Spray Lubricant 6. Bose Stereo/Speaker Systems 7. Crayola Crayons/Markers 8. Hershey's Kisses Just thought you guys would find that amusing.
