I will be looking at two electronics company DELL and ACER companies and trying to analyse which best demostrates an effective marketing orientation. Many years ago, I learned that our own limits were like walls surrounding us. They gave us a sense of security, dimension and perspective; they allowed us to get to know everything about the world inside because at the same time they protected us from the world outside. I also learned that people are afraid of breaking down those walls and overcoming their limits, as they’re frightened of losing the sanctuary that limits offer. So if happiness awaits those who overcome their limits, we’re actually taught to fear happiness.
Balls I say. I don’t know about you but I’m all for happiness. .
