    Sometimes focus groups just don’t get it right.

    The focus group was born, and progress took a step back.

    Focus group. That must be next of kin to “think tank”.

    Building pyramids before inventing the wheel makes sense… maybe not.

    Focus groups often seem to suffer from myopia. They produce very strange product names, slogans, and logos, awful tv programs, and really poor political campaign themes. And look where the last one got us.

    Reminds me of something from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The Golgofrinchans are stuck on a prehistoric Earth. They’ve been trying to develop the wheel, but they’re stuck on what color it should be.

    By the way, does anyone know if it’s possible to insert italics into these comments? I can get bold by putting a * before and after a word or phrase.

    Focus groups are why our current movies are so mundane and predictable.

    Fortunately, this is another example where science won out over PR, politics, and marketing.

    What they should do is simply ask the buyers what they look for and what they don’t like Toyota did it for years and it worked very well. The same would work here if they would only ask us before they make a change…
