They've taken to advertising the disgrace on Myspace. I keep rejecting them as a friend, but they keep trying to add me. Shortly after meeting Bryan Logan, I decided to send them a message with a good phrase he mentioned.


Quote:



Unfortunately they thought that was support more than criticism. :?

I'm undecided between it being hilarious or sad.

For those who don't know it:

Quote:
Public reaction to the change was devastating, and the new cola quickly entered the pantheon of major marketing flops.

you should go to the launch with a bunch of friends and promote real rubik's cubes.

Dudes, please comment your quotes. xcool, when you posted the follow-up part, I seriously didn't realize it and didn't even read the quote until now (never quote an external source without making readers aware of it). And Clayne, what's up with the quotes of nick^4 and me? I don't understand.

Ha, I could see it now. About 50 or so speecubers are there playing with real cubes, and the RR company comes up to us and is like "Hey, try out new puzzle out!!!"

Cubers: "Wow, this thing sucks. Real people should buy real cubes!"

*Rubik's sales go up 300%*

Ah, I thought that it may have been unclear.

I meant to use your quote to reply to nick's. He showed Bill Cosby shamelessly supporting New Coke, and I felt the same about that, that you did towards the Rubik's Revolution conversation.

So in reply to the Bill Cosby video, I couldn't decide if it was hilarious or sad.

P.S. I chose sad.

Sorry. I should have mentioned that was the second half of the conversation I had with them.

Anybody can contact them via Myspace. It shouldn't be to hard to find them.

And that will most likely do nothing. No matter how much feedback, hostile or not, they won't take the Rubik's name off the product.

Well duh, because rubik's is the one making endorsing it! Even if the product sucks, for every person out there that buys it, they get money. In they end our friendly(?) puzzle company is just a money hungry monster! :P

Hey, xcool, I'm guessing that improper American bugs you eh? Lol :)

Not at all. I'm not some straight edge person or anything. Far from it. You just need to know which battles are worth picking.

Rubiks revolution is definately a shame to rubik's in all ways. If your gonna make a new rubik's "puzzle", at least have the sides turn, but it will provide a new bop-it for small children! Very disappointing. The sad thing is that in the future, kids might hear the word rubik and thing of that dumb thing.

Oh well, the rest of the world can fall into chaos, but we cubers will remain true!

@Nate: What does your signature mean you're not a speedcuber yet?? If you cube for speed, then you are a speedcuber! I was a speedcuber at 1:30. Besides that, you've done some harder puzzles then I have *points to square one*

he does endorse this thing:

the mentioned document wrote:
Professor Rubik, the original Cube’s inventor, adds, “After more than 25 years, the Rubik’s Cube has remained the ultimate puzzle for all ages. This new addition to the Rubik's lineup captures the essence of the original yet adds an exciting new spin.”

Erno has been brainwashed!! CUBERS, ASSEMBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is quite sad... the fall of humanity as we know it? Or just the fall of the popularity of the cube? Doesn't bug me, I like having a small community, makes things easier to keep track of.

I was actually considering it until I realized that the faces don't actually turn and it's nothing more than an overglorified Simon. I'm really hoping that no one gets it for me, because people know that I'm a cuber, and it'll be just crushing if they see my look of disappointment.

The way I prevent this from happening is to tell everyone _not_ to get me any puzzles since the chances are that I already have it anyway. Now the only puzzles I get are usually hand made or one-of-a-kind type things.

True that. Pretty much every hobby I get involved in means that I always buy my own supplies. Visa giftcards are much better, or money :)

I'm not really surprised...At this point I don't think he honestly cares about introducing more amazing puzzles.

Yeah, I'm a cynic. I've spent too much time in the ad game myself to be anything but cynical when praise for a product happens to contain all the right "buzzwords" and reads more like a marketing slogan than a genuine opinion.

But by law, they can't say Rubik said something if he didn't....

So would the oldies :P

Think about it, without him, you wouldn't have wrote that Zac, you wouldn't talk to me, and you wouldn't know so much about Britain and our Queen copping it. :P
he is the creator of this community, the god of it.....then again Meffert would have released the 3x3 if Rubik wasn't kicking around.

Rubik's Cube rolls off the tounge much easier than Meffert's Cube if you ask me. :wink:

Maybe that's because I'm so used to calling it a Rubik's Cube.

This forum is fun though, I have met so many interesting people... But that is a speach for later, IE on my 6x6x6 post that will be coming up soon...

he is the creator of this community, the god of it.....then again Meffert would have released the 3x3 if Rubik wasn't kicking around.
Rubik's Cube rolls off the tounge much easier than Meffert's Cube if you ask me. :wink:

Maybe that's because I'm so used to calling it a Rubik's Cube.


I thought about this and it actually stresses my tongue and mouth in general a lot more when I say "rubik's" instead of "mefferts".

We could all call it by its correct name! The Magic Cube!!


I usually just call it My Cube.... Esp because mine isn't made by rubik's...

Cubefans Cube? I don't think so.

A puzzle cube which is made up of 20 solvable pieces arranged around 6 fixed centers held by screws into a kernel which allows for independent movement of the outer faces?

Not too bad, although it would be a pain to say that if you were referring to a cube that was any bigger... Like a 10x10 perhaps?

I see the revolution is now being sold on Ebay out of Austrailia.

why do the rr team keep advertising it as " a new twist that keeps the essence of the original" or something like that. this was said somewhere else, but the richest person here should buy 10,00 of them, take apart the insides and modify them so they turn, and return them

Whoa, dead thread... I sortof miss this one though, so here is my two cents:

Has anyone on these forums actually gotten a revolution? I don't think anyone has even bothered yet...
