yeah, some of the catch phrases on the neander site are pretty entertaining... take the narrated tour for reference. throwing a changeup, it's narrated by an australian (absolutely nothing against australians, just interesting that a german company picked that particular accent to represent what they wanted to represent. outside of australia, i've rarely heard the australian accent used in marketing bytes). the sight is afroth with (dare i say) oddities like that...

i found it fun to hear the narrator try to sell lines like "...it's 50 percent sex, and 50 percent rock-n-roll..."

it is a german product, so i'm sure that one of the early concept models was exotic-dancer-ready.

not that there's anything wrong with that.
