Default Re: Spam Or Not? You Decide:

I was quite shocked to find that I did not have a disk or copy of WinXP. Then when I found out that my 80 gig HD was actually only a 55 gig HD, I was a bit PO'ed.

I had the same thing when I bought my computer. 40 gig HD had only 32 gigs of space. I only lost 8 gigs though, I have no idea why but it seems like the larger HD's need more room for the backup. I've heard other people say they are missing different amounts. Not that XP's recovery system is worth a hill of beans anyway, as SJ pointed out, but I guess it matches the rest of XP.

What people sometimes do, and it's definitely unwise, is to just assume all big companies, by virtue of being large visible companies, are incapable of the same underhanded behaviour of small shady fly by night operations.

Companies and or corporations are just as capable of screwing you over as anyone else.

Does the name Enron ring a bell?
Want more examples?

When you are buying something, make sure you know what you are buying. The phrase buyer beware applies to more than just dealing with strangers on eBay eh.
