top Dish Network Violated Do-Not-Call 57 Million Times
I normally hang up on these but one day I was in a 'playful' mood, so I acted very interested and very stupid: "You can lower my interest rate that much! Wow! That would be great!" He told me that he "was not some scammer trying to sell me vacation to Floriday" and he just needed my CC number. I kept the guy on the phone for almost 15 minutes while I 'looked for my credit card'. I kept asking silly questions until I finally said, "So, I think I might actually be interested in that Florida vacation". At that point he realized I was just drawing the call out. His response was "All I can say to you is eat s&*t and die. You are a real f&*k and go to hell". I felt bad for being mean (for about 2 seconds) then played the recording I made for my wife who that it was really funny.

top Amazon's Plan To Storm the Cable Industry's Castle
If someone would offer a "you pick 50 channels for $50" service, they would win. Break it up into 5 levels and pick 10 from each. I hate paying for 300 channels when I only want / watch 20% of them. I know, there are all sorts of license, premium fees, etc. But if someone can figure a way around it...

Give me an interface for my brain to hook into existing computing resources. (They did it on STTNG!)

top Flash Is Not a Right
But you can get about 6+ years of development kit (@$99) for one Adobe Flash ($699). Just depends on what you want to build. (Just remember Linux, g++ and OpenGL are still FREE!)
top True Tales of Tech Hoarding
I have recycled several systems, upgraded others and always kept the hard drives (personal info paranoia). I took one apart the other day and decided that the three very reflective platters could be arranged to make a great shaving mirror for the shower.
top GameStop Sued Over Lack of DLC For Used Games
and not getting the 'new car' smell.
But really, how many other things do you buy used and lose something over a new version: a book with a special coupon insert, DVD with ticket to the sequel, cereal missing the toy (strike that last one!)
top Google Buys iPhone Search App, Kills It
They will probably start trying to find good apps as they are being developed and tested. That way they can acquire them before they make it to the app store. Not that I would sell out on the app I am developing. Not even for a big chunk of cash and a good job at Google. No way. (Call me...)
top Nintendo Working On Football Controller
Why are they doing all of this and still leaving behind the single best application of the wiimote - swordfights.
There's even a Nerf sword you can stick the controller into if you want to feel a little more dorky.
I think that should be the next big Wii title: "Feel a Little More Dorky"
