    you won't find this behavior on MS's forums. Trust me I've tried :)

    But more importantly I wonder if this happens on dell/hp/toshiba forums.

    this is a rant fyi :P

    Happens all the time on their forums too... You can probably find a few threads on "glowing corners" on any given day.

    Sucks that Apple was giving people the run around. I couldn't be happier with my Mac Mini... but it's connected to Dell components.

    Yeah, I am not condoning apple's behavior. Far from it. It sucks when companies act like that. I am just saying that it is naive to think that all large corporations haven't acted in this manner. Deny deny deny deny, get pushed into a corner, tell the truth. It sucks, but it happens.

    It's all about the bottom line these days. It's obviously not financially beneficial for Apple to admit a problem so they ignore it hoping people will go away and forget about it. People have short memories these days and will usually let stuff like this slide and be buying a new Mac within 3-5 years. That's what they are banking on the short attention span of the average consumer. All companies are guilty of it not just Apple.

    That's true, in a way. However, a company can't ignore the good will of the customer and focus only on the bottom line. It will eventually come back to haunt them. Unless you are Apple whose primary market is composed of fanbois. In that case, you can do no wrong and get every last penny out of the customer base all the while ignoring the good will.

    Microsoft knows it already has a built-in bad press so it won't do something to further anger the public.

    Other companies have less than monopolistic market share so they don't totally ignore their customers.
    Trust me. I know what I am doing.
