Their account managers moved to India a few years ago and it's been crap ever since. I imagine a lot of purchasers are already looking elsewhere.
Could it be HD?
Back then there was hardly any HD content, so blowing it up bigger than 42" would make it look blocky. Nowadays HD means we need a bigger set to appreciate the better picture quality.
Re: worst hosting company I ever had the misfortune to deal with
Yes, they are dreadful. Slow website, email errors and appalling overseas support. If you wanted to make a bad web hosting company - they tick all the boxes.
Crap Support Service
Just spent the whole day being palmed from one Acer department to the other. Nobody can tell me how I can return a faulty battery I purchased for a client. Acer are top of my shitlist of toxic brands I would never purchase, if they go under never to resurface again I wouldn't be too distressed.
Apparently no ads
They have said on their website:
that there will be no ad breaks. Still, doubt the coverage will be as good as the beeb though.
Have I missed something
Couldn't you just get a rechargeable mouse with cradle? I have one, it cost me about £7 from ebuyer a couple of years back. I know people who purchase Apple generally are happy to get ripped off for their tech, but £45!
If they were to invent one that charged itself off your movement motion, now that would be worthwhile!
Most men are good drivers...
so why should only men and all men bear the brunt of the dangerous few. If it's acceptable to use gender as a factor when charging for services then why not tax females more, after all they use more of the NHS, work less, and earn less!
Will it make much difference?
People can already purchase foreign subs + rotating dishes over the net if they wish to. It's usually supplied by third party companies and in the end isn't really that much cheaper.
It'll never happen..
..because a good chunk of the police, politicians, and anyone with any sort of influence would also find their way onto the database as no doubt they use them too!
I use Ebuyer quite a lot, they've always been a decent price and had no problems.
@Shocked to Read
"if you're a disabled man with few qualifications, you're half as likely to be working now as in the 1970s".
Yes, because they're all better off on benefits!
Finally the penny's dropped
Having dealt with BT's frankly awful technical support it can only be good news. When will businesses realise how unattractive an overseas call centre makes them to the consumer.
Acer are useless
Yes, after various bad experiences with Acer's support department on their other products I would steer well clear of buying an Acer phone.
