Ever since they started using transistors, (and I can remember those old days), it has been downhill ever since.
.... but at a minimum, it looks like they want to make all the hay they can on the float.
There is accelerating use of "float" as a business tactic in many automated areas.For example, when I use my bank credit card, the "interest" clock starts the second that I use it. However, the status of the purchase shows as "Pending" on my bank website, and it does NOT allow me to make a payment on the card until status changes from "Pending" to "Complete". So the clock has run anywhere from 3 to 5 calendar days before I am allowed to make a payment. I can usually catch it before interest actually starts to accrue, but they make you start 5 days "in the hole" while the "computers" take 5 days to do something.Or when I "unsubscribe" from some Email distribution list that I somehow got on. I can go to the site and submit a change to "Unsubscribe", whereupon I get a message saying that it may take 8 - 10 business days for the status change to take effect. The very cats in the street know that this is B. S. of the highest order. If they had an interest in really stopping the Emails, the computers would make the change in literally 50 milliseconds or so. Instead, because it's important to them to keep sending messages out, they take a period of time that is 2,000,000 times longer than necessary, just in order to keep me "on the hook".You can only take so much of this gratuitous diddling with a smile, which is why I do not use very many kinds of technology that other people consider essential.You sound like you're on your way to the right kind of computer, though.Lannis
If you are being charged interest on a purchase immediately, as opposed to end of the month, you need a new card.
Lannis, Newegg just e-mailed me that they've approved my refund and I should get it within 3-5 business days. what a rip off.
Sounds pretty good to me! That's where my last laptop came from .....Lannis
