Title: "I've stopped developing corded vacuums" ... running total
Post by: nzvacs on May 11, 2018, 09:44:14 AM
Running count of all the new corded Dyson's that have come out following James Dyson triumphantly announcing that he "stopped developing them"

I'll start...

I like the elbow joint on the wands. V4 digital looks good.

Development takes time, and these machines were launched quite swiftly after that claim, so these vacuums were in development before the V10 was launched and for that claim to be made about the discontinuation of the development of corded vacuums

I think it's a mistake but with people careing less about performance but more about being lazy he'll be a multi billionaire before long.

I'd not seen that V4, I've just bunged it on the index.

Bloody hell though, 800?  :o

From the Taiwan site, NT is New Taiwanese Dollars, 33500 of the buggers is 830 squids.

It's a status thing in those countries. The G Force cost more in Japan in 1991. That was twice that back then.

Well, given that his yacht cost US$70 million, and the Gulfstream G650 was US$65 million, then he's got to sell quite a lot of V4's to keep those running...
When the DC01 was first marketed, everyone told him it was far too expensive to sell in any numbers. Clearly, they were wrong.
I believe he is already a multi-billionaire Rusty, net worth around US$6 billion. The nice thing about having no shareholders to worry about is that you can pay yourself whatever dividend you like (111 million last year I think).
