Microsoft's High Speed Satellite System Has A Huge Hidden Cost
from the oh,-and-you'll-need-a-PC-with-that... dept
Apparently, if you sign up for “high speed MSN” at RadioShack you have to buy a PC with it. Considering that’s not mentioned in any of the advertising, this seems fairly questionable. The official reason is that it needs to be “specially configured”, but evidence of that is scarce. I can certainly see them advertising a package deal, but to suggest that you can sign up for just the high speed access, and then mention at the last minute that you have to buy a thousand dollar computer, suggests a bit of tricky advertising.
