Dont you hate all those idiots that are trying to sell that 750 megahertz computer on like 5 different channels. They're so dumb cause its so damn obvious they have no idea what they're talking about. The guy just thinks that if he talks in a loud excited voice that it means the item is good: "LADIES AND GENTLEMENT, THIS IS A NONAME 17 INCH MONITOR, it has a POINT TWENTY EIGHT DOT PITCH" damn, sometimes you just stop on the channel if you want a good laugh sometimes. They should hire some guys that know what they're talking about and sell some real stuff.

Hehe, reminds me of the value america infocomercials they had running. . . now they are gone. Hehe, /me quotes, "this is state of the art 650 MHz!!! This proc just came on to the market, and with 64 mb of ram! you'll be cookin'. Not to mention the cavernous 15 gb hard drive."

Yeah. They are trying to sell those no name brand computer with "not so state of the art" components to some idiots who know less then they do, if that's possible.

I want to call into one of those channels and start asking tech questions if I get on the air such as
1 - What motherboard does the computer offer?
2 - What chipset is on the motherboard?
3 - Is that CAS2 or CAS3 memory?
4 - What version drivers for the 3D accelerator are pre-installed?

I thought about that too before but I'm a "chillin' type of guy" and don't wanna embarass 'em. But if you're gonna call 'em, let me know. I'll tune in and have a nice time. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/wink.gif

Heh, that could be just as much fun as "stump the tech support" Oh yeah, you gotta love abusing tech support.

Don West is the ultimate host of those shows. He does the sports collectables show for Shop At Home almost every night, and it is pure entertainment to see this guy get worked up over the products he is selling. "Folks it is imperative that you get on the phone right now." "Buy two, but three, buy 10, just don't miss out on this."
