It's fun to do this

I'll admit I have typed in wrong pin codes on my sisters iPhone just to see how long I can block it.

Re: Set-up...

Curry's offered a service which a lot of people never went for. It was meant to involve a member of staff spending a hour setting up the laptop, installing all relevant software's and showing the customers how to use the laptop (I know of one elderly couple who bought it).

But Curry's staff started lying and claiming stuff like "laptop won't turn on", "you have to buy the Operating System", "only experts will be able to set up the laptop" etc... in order to force people who didn't know better to buy this service.

Saw staff at Curry's do this deliberately

I remember once visiting Curry's In Mile End London couple of years back.

I was waiting at the counter to pay for an Xbox 360 controller and listening to the guy behind the till lying to the customer "The computer needs to be set up with all of the software, if you take the laptop home as is you won't be able to use it as it will not turn on. We can do this for you if you pay £40."

The customer was confused and didn't understand (mainly because they had no idea what any computer jargon meant).

I paid for my controller 10 minutes later and decided to butt in. Will try and translate what i said "This guys is lying, you don't need to pay anything. Everything you need comes inside the laptop. If you want I'll show you how easy it is".

The clerk got annoyed and started telling me to leave the store and not to call him a liar. We argued until another guy in the queue got involved backing me up. The security guards came up to me and attempted to usher me out of the store.

The customer decided to leave the store without buying anything, I could hear the customer say "we'll just ask your brother to buy one tomorrow".

Thought i'd share my story,

Lots of hate for a small loud group group

After reading a fair number of the comments one simple trend started showing up.

This OS was better, I don't use this feature, that was fine, it shouldn't have changed. Blah blah blah

Let me give you an example of the people I've seen using windows 10.

Ooh windows 10 what's knew? Oh that's nice, can I do this or that like I did before?

After telling friends and family nothing really changed and if they need anything just give me a shout. I noticed they DON'T CARE about all of these customisation and what not people are banging on about.

In simple terms does it work? yes. Can I do what i want on it? Yes.

Seriously people if windows 10 was able to shit diamonds for everyone that used it you all will still find something to whine about.
