Voodoo PC founder Rahul Sood talks about gaming hardware company Razer, comparing its community of users to early Apple adopters.

We like the Razer Blade, but evidently not as much as Rahul Sood. The gaming laptop evidently left quite an impression on Voodoo PC founder (and now partner at Bing), who lavished praise on the Blade for its "amazing craftsmanship, the quality of materials, unique ID, beautiful packaging, and the fit and finish" in a recent blog post.

Moving beyond the company's current products, the Voodoo PC founder goes on to say that the sense of community among Razer users is reminiscent of the kind of thing Apple had when it was starting out, and that the gaming company might be able to recreate some of Apple's success, although on a smaller scale. Sood sold his company to HP in 2006, only to have the company all but abandon the Voodoo brand a few years later. That particular detail puts Sood's advice to Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan in a stark context: "Min if you’re reading this, don’t sell your company to anyone – ever."
