Requests like “Please like our page” or “We need your likes” is both ironic and a turnoff. At worst do a “If you like us, don’t feel shy”.

@rakeshrh A good experience is a result of removal of subtle pain points.

@rakeshrh The word experience is complete in itself. Speed, aesthetics, design, stability, performance, quality etc - all contribute to it.

@rakeshrh And some of those who do care, think that why should a purchase a “pain” and carry it around for years? Let me invest a bit more..

via Twitter for Mac in reply to rakeshrh

@rakeshrh I’ll add one more thing. Browsing or music on a mac gives a far better experience than windows Unfortunately few care about it.
