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

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.

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.

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.
