It's quite sad how many people are blind to Wal-Mart. It's like Stockholm Syndrome.
Here's another one for ya...

Who cares?

Back on topic.

I can see this actually working, since I see tons of computers being sold at my Walmart every single day!

Wow. There are less evil-supporting ways of saying you have no good defense for Wal-Mart's actions or your previous posts.

And it probably will work. If people will buy computers at Wal-Mart they will probably accept their technical support offerings.

The list goes on, and quite frankly, saying "Wal-Mart owns" is like saying "I like getting daily colonoscopies without sedatives!"

Wal-Mart is the epitome of America! Thats what the US is. Its a capitalist country.

Gain as much wealth as possible on the backs of others, whether they are fellow citizens or not.

Its not a great picture but its a real one.

Back on topic....

Geek Squad from Walmart? ......cant be good for BestBuy but I don't think it will put them out of business .

What's truly quite sad is how some people can't simple state their opinion on the matter and respect everyone else's opinion.

I really do enjoy reading all the fights on the forums though, they do become quite amusing.

Customer - Hi, is my computer done?

Tech - Yeah, it's right over there. I had to replace the CPU because the fan on the heatsink wasnt spinning properly. Your Pentium 4 was overheating. The bill is $582.

------------------

Job manager - So, one last question.

New tech - Yeah?

Job manager - Have you ever seen the inside of a computer before?

New tech - ...... *small voice* no.

Job manager - Oh thats fine, you'll learn quickly. Now I already have a job for you, a customer brought in a PC that he built himself, and I want you to go take a look at it.

LMAO well said.

oh and more importantly....

"If I buy one of these computers you sell here, can it play this game you sell here? Oh, it's called Crysis...."
