Comment Bad tactics (Score 0) 460

I dropped Netflix when they wanted to increase my $9 grandfathered plan to $36. They didn't give a crap that I had been a loyal customer since 1992... . So they deserve it. The customer isn't always right, but you have to ease them into your new business model. They don't understand that. The corporate culture there is too arrogant.

The police won't give a shit, most burglary goes unpunished even if you give them evidence.

+1 on that. My house was broken into a couple years ago and my laptop stolen. I had Prey installed, so I was able to give the police a picture of the thief from the laptop camera and the thief's IP address with the street address associated to their account. The response was "That's nice." They never did anything. Later, I even found out the guy's name, what kind of car he drove, and that he was committing other burglaries (I left Prey running for a few weeks after the theft and got all kinds of pics and screen caps). I gave it all to the police. They still did nothing. I gave up and wiped the machine remotely. The guy's probably still out there. At least where I live, the police are not interested in theft not matter how much you evidence you give them.
