You Get What You Pay For

Hey guys, I just saw this really funny news story yesterday that shows how reliable the people that pack computer stuff are. Any way, some average guy walked into some average Staples and bought some average 300GB hard drive. Well, he got it home, opened the package, and saw that he got what he had payed for, 2 D batteries. Thats about how much a 300 GB hard drive is worth now, and anyway, it's not like you can't use D batteries. Umm.......what does use D batteries anymore? I don't know... Oh yeah, did I mention they were rusty? So the guy took it back to Staples and I guess got a new one. So, this was either a plot by Staples hoping that some idiot would pick up the hard drive, open it up, see the batteries, think they were the hard drive, put them in the PC, and mess it up. Then, they would have to buy a new computer from Staples. Pretty good plan. The other thing that could have happened is some guy in the Maxtor assembly facility was playing with batteries and put two in the box. Either way, it's pretty funny.
