Is there a group of people that know the maximum rotational speed of a 1980s Swiss washing machine? Are there people that cant understand how consumers would just walk into a store and buy a brand new microwave without researching the competition first? How about purchasing a new sofa without caring about the fact that it depreciates by over 70% just leaving the store?

Are there groups of people that get into bar fights over the build quality of Dyson v. Hoover vacuums? Did the vacuum enthusiasts freak out about autonomous vacuum robots? Are they worried that the connection between man and machine around the household track will die away?

Are cars really so special?
