Because if you ever been in their channel, this is exactly how they talk. There's little proof needed.

I say, let them burn in hell for 5-10 years without parole (thanks federal crimes), come back to life with a permanent restriction on using computers, never get a job again (thanks google), and show the rest of the retards like weev & co how things should be done. good riddance, the internet thanks you!

I've been with WellsFargo for about 15 years (actually started with a smaller local bank they bought out) and I can actually pull all my statements (in PDF) since the month I opened my account - and they carried over the statements/history from the bank they picked up. Shrug. Last year my account brought in ~$1k in interest, so I'm not sure I'm getting your "stupid enough to bank with WellsFargo" comment either. Do they suck or something?

If this unit has the same firmware development team (and likely, it does) who handle firmware for Popcornhour & etc, good luck getting this unit to a usable state until at least a year after initial release.

popcornhour c-200 is a perfect example of good hardware ruined by crappy firmware support.
there are still bugs over a year after release that aren't getting fixed. ridiculous.

I also cannot find any reference to what the actual problem and software was.
To me, sounds like a way old spyware/shitware infested computer and a not-so-literate computer user.
You can spend 10 years working for Sun and still have no idea how to properly administer a Windows machine.

General consumers won't have any use for 100 gpio pins, the fragile 240-pin connector will not last on any kind of multiple-insertions application, and in general, is there even any demand for this kind of stuff? bringing more pci-e lanes = only useful for graphics, anyone who needs more than 1x out of a laptop will be buying a desktop instead.

It isn't easy being the parent of a six-year-old. However, it's a pretty small price to pay for having somebody around the house who understands computers.
