Comment This could be said for all computer makers. (Score 2, Interesting) 484

I remember a certain model of HP laptop from a few years back that had a bad overheating problem. It was due to a defect in the design of the product. HP did nothing to fix it. This isn't the only problem Dell has had either, they had a BTX style desktop that would lose it's ability to see the USB keyboard and mouse. All it would do is say it couldn't see the mouse or keyboard and to please press F1. Call Dell and they would cancel your warranty and basically tell you to go stuff it. Acer had an entire line of laptops that would stop turning on after about a year of use. I have a stack of them in the corner. The list goes on and on.

Comment Hyphens (Score 1) 773

I hate it when some websites I sign up for can't handle a hyphen in my last name. Then you try a space which some of them seem to be ok with but others don't like. This isn't that big of a deal for most websites but when you are trying to do something important like order something and your name on your debit card doesn't match what they will allow you to type it. Then it gets annoying.
