    Can you at least not use the words elevate the experience. Can’t think of a better example of downright offensive, degrading and patronising managerial newspeak, hollow and misleading. If anything those words diminish the actual reasons for buying/using a high tech device that even if most people love using it, it is meant to and indeed, does so in the vast majority of cases cases, make your life a easier. The word experience also diminishes the science and technology effort behind the phone, computer, car, non-stick frypan, smart TV-set, piece of software, technology applied to the sick at the hospital, teaching at the university (yes even the mission statement of hospitals and universities these days have as a goal he enhancement of patients’ and students’ experience). None of these things are developed or meant to have a hedonistic end. If i buy one (or get admitted to the hosp. or attend university) is NOT to enjoy the experience by itself, it is to satisfy a need, to take advantage of it, to make the use of time more efficient, to get back on my feet, to learn, get a degree and get e a job…. Nothing to do with elevating my experience. It is not an spiritual thing: It s practical thing. (True, it will help HP in this case to make a buck or two, but that is fact of life, so managers should not have a guilty mind about that either (BTW, do company, bank, hospital, university…. managers have a mind?). Why not comedown to earth for a change, and call the spade a spade That would really elevate, enhance and/or improve everyone’s life experience…(fat chance…)
