HTC Profits Drop By 79%

mlong Re:Where is HTC One for Verizon? (209 comments)

Well Samsung is out for me. They release buggy phones and then never upgrade them. The Samsung Droid Charge has been the worst phone I've ever owned in my life. I'm done with Samsung

And don't forget they got rid of new every 2, got rid of 1 year contracts, and started charging an upgrade fee. Verizon has been doing everything they can lately to shaft their customers

Philips Releases 100W-Equivalent LED Bulb, Runs On Just 23 Watts

mlong Re:Warranty? (529 comments)

So the manufacturer only has enough faith in their product to warrant it for 3 years and they want me to spend $40 on it. I don't think so
