Wasting money

Ok, maybe things are different in Canada. However when you buy something here and you aren't satisfied with it within 30days..you REFUND IT..no bloody need to to sell it on ebay or pay for it 6months later.

Secondly, is it just me or is it rather silly to buy a computer for creditcard money..By the time he was paying it off in 6months, he could've used the exact same money to buy a 6month newer & better machine. Oh, that and the fact that it would lack interest.

Same goes for software. How the hell do you run out and buy an expensive(probly put it on the cc too) piece of software without reading a single review. Also, all the software that I bought had a return-to-maker-within-30days-if-not-satisfied clause. Maybe it's just certain titles and only in canada.

In any case. I'm sure that MBNA is mighty happy with this guy as a customer. He seems to have weird horrid itches to buy expensive hardware that serves litttle purpose(YAY for wasting $2000 on organizing mp3s and photos..YAY!).

Also he claims to be a fan of freebsd, however he doesn't appear to enjoy much of OSX's unix side. There isn't a mention anything but iCra..err..iApps.

After reading this article it seems that Apple should merge with a creditcard company and put even more shiny iButtons into their OS. As long as there are itching geeks, we'll have a successful apple.
