    for some of the PC's here - a PC suicide may be favourable to a continued existense with their current user

    why is my Pc so slow today?

    Maybe it's because you have 37 sessions of MS word running similtaneously.....

    When Best Buy employees come over to bother me, I ask them simple questions to make them think they are doing their job, (and if at all possible to help them realize how incapable they are of it)

    "Can I help you sir?"

    "Yea, Can you tell me if DVD Drives are also able to read CDs?"

    {pause}

    "Well, lets see... {pause} Boy thats a pretty important question! {laughs}.. Here, let me get Brian"

    ----

    "Why are monitors so much more expensive than TVs?"

    "The main reason is because you have to be able to connect monitors to computers."

    "Oh.... Thanks"

    ----

    "What do you know about this minature optical mouse here? I have some young cousins with small hands. I know it is part of the laptop accessories isle, but do you know if this mouse can be used with a normal desktop computer?"

    "I'm afraid not sir. See on the box? It says 'For Use With Laptops' "

    "Aww thats too bad... Ok, Thanks anyways "

    Sure, most of the time they answer correctly, but mistakes like these (even rare ones) are pathetic.

    Agreed, the state of the knowledge of sales staff in most stores leaves a lot to be desired.

    But retail is a pretty tough business for a lot of different reasons.
    And for what most stores pay floor personnel, it's not likely that any electronic engineers are going to apply for the job unless they are in dire straits.

    Occasionaly you do run across sales personnel that are "in the know" and it is like a breath of fresh air compared to the typical experience.

    A consumers best bet is to be as informed and knowledgable about a product as possible before going to purchase it.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    Probably the best one I was told was not long after getting into computer hardware around Christmas 1997. The salesman said "This S3 ViRGE has 98% of the 3D speed of the Diamond Monster 3D" (which was a 3dfx Voodoo for those hardware n00bs here) ;)

    I didn't have enough $$$ for the Voodoo so I got a Voodoo Rush instead... that was a mistake :cry:
    What came first - Insanity or Society?
