Creative Labs Under Massive Blogosphere Attack Over Post To Daniel_K

A couple of updates to yesterdays post.

It appears Creative Labs is under a massive blogosphere attack at this moment.

  • As I write this there are 176 pages of feedback to Phil O’Shaughnessy’s about his post to Daniel_K. Mr. O’Shaughnessy is getting a lesson in Corporate Communications like he’s never had in his life.
  • The forum page where Mr. O’Shaughnessy’s post starts has been hit 230,000 times since his post last Friday.

Some Facual Updates on Creative Labs

  • The owner of Creative Labs is Sim Wong Hoo.
  • Creative Labs is based in Singapore.
  • According to Wikipedia “Sim Wong Hoo with his school friend Ng Kai Wa set up shop in Pearl Centre in Singapore. He got his start running Creative as a computer repair shop. While doing this he developed an add-on memory board for the Apple II computer that they sold as well. Later, Creative started creating customized PCs adapted for the Chinese language which included enhanced audio capabilities so that the device could produce speech and melodies. The success of this audio interface led to the development of a stand-alone sound card named Sound Blaster that Creative marketed. Sound Blaster was very successful and has been used as a standard of comparison for sound cards.

Below is an interview with Sim Wong Hoo

As I outlined in yesterdays post, this company built their business on technology that fit into slots in computers and they should know what Daniel_K is all about. As I posted yesterday there is no reason for Daniel_K to be treated the way he has. As such I have added my name to an online petition on “Creative Labs Driver Quality”. That petition can be found at

After watching the video with Sim Wong Hoo it’s sad to see that Creative Labs is going through this.

  1. Wow. You’d think they’d have learned after trying to mess with customers that have Cyrix processors. Sad.
