Pentagon Selects Companies To Build Flying Humvees

Apple Fails To Deliver On Windows 7 Boot Camp Promise

theheff No issues here (279 comments)

I've really had no problems on the latest model unibody 15" MBP. I've been running the Windows 7 x64 RTM since it was released.

CompUSA To Close All Stores

theheff my eyes are dry (509 comments)

I'm not going to miss the snooty comments made by their staff members after asking them where a part is... and then try to sell me a warranty on top of it. Give me a break. Margins usually drop in most industries over time. Poor business design is what killed this beast. While I'm sure a number of talented people work for their chain, and I truly feel for them for their upcoming layoffs, you can't say that you didn't see it coming. Rest in peace.
