    Bonus

    That's liable to dampen your day. This one must go on my list of 'favorite frivolous experiments'.

    nice going Dell

    with those $150 "rebates" that you have no intention of honoring, responding to my carefully prepared paperwork with form-letter postcards and finally telling me I ordered from the wrong web page (long gone!).

    I still have one of those postcards on my desk, in case I ever get tempted to order from you guys again. "DELL MAIL-IN REBATE. Dear customer: Thank you for participating in this promotion. Unfortunately, we could not honor your request because of the following reason:

    Your request was postmarked beyond the eligibility period for this promotion."

    Re: nice going Dell

    Sony did this to me about 10 years ago and I've never bought anything from the bastards since.

    I was a fan until then, but it turns out that for almost everything Sony make, there's a no-name Korean or Chinese company with something just as good for half the price.

    The morals of this are:
    a) Do not buy from Sony, they are scum.
    b) Turning happy customers into hostile ex-customers is definitely bad for business.
