Is it just me...?
« on: February 15, 2008, 08:57:03 AM »
I was having a large time scanning thru the various pictures in the Gallery (nice job, AJ!), and could not help but laugh when I got to the picture of the LG dryer stripped down to the base.

Now, we all know that LG has a reputation for being a copycat (Maytag French Door, i.e.), but they obviously had a bad case of Maytag Dryer envy when they put this one together. As they say, Look's Good

One of AJ's future challenges could be for us seasoned technicians to come up with our own concept of what the ideal dryer should be like. We already know the ones we hate and adore so if we had our way, what would the perfect dryer be? Photoshop techies invited.
