Personally, I'd call it "Listening to input from the community". This seems like a good thing for everyone involved here so no need to make it sound negative

But it sounds rather petty when it is posted on FB

It is just a bit of a joke saying that they stole our idea.

With the redesigns for the top and front airflow and the HDD slots I can say as an engineer that they have definitely been considering this for a long while. since before the video anyway.

'Inspired by Tom'
TBH I think it's a really good facelift. I've been tossing up between this and the Define S. This new update is tipping things back towards NZXT. Airflow sorted. Just need it in blue now

This.

It's long been known that these companies do not listen to their customers. Richard Swinburne (BindiBagi) wrote a killer article about it in Custom PC a year or two ago.

This is also why I don't have any hate for Thermaltake, because they just give people what they want at a lower price. Their latest chassis is actually quite awesome.

Back when I was a graphic designer and part time coder for an emulator project we (myself and a friend of mine) decided to make our own program to run on the emulator. We named it, penned out all of our ideas on a forum and then I put up some very rough graphics to show what the machine would look like.

It never really went anywhere.. Any way, 18 months later we were on the motorway in his car and lo and behold there stood a fruit machine, exactly as we had envisioned it.

Was I erm, annoyed? at first yeah. My pee was really boiling. Then after an hour or so I actually felt really proud of myself

They say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.
