Send love to the trolls?
Well said Sarah! Why do people like that bother? This place obviously isn't for them and that's fair enough but why not just go somewhere else?
Ahhh, hang on a minute!?! Would life be as good without them here to laugh at?

I've got an LG GSA-E50N which I use with my EEE PC 701 and it works great with Linux or Windows and fits in the case I bought for the EEE, I was really surprised at just how small, cheap and good it was. I also get less coasters with this little drive than I do with either of my internal desktop dvd writers.
I once bought a mobile from them, when it came to changing phones again, I decided to go elsewhere. They made leaving nearly impossible, getting a PAC code was a war I thought I was never going to win.
CPW tried more and more desperate offers to stop me leaving, the problem was they didn't deliver on the offers they made. Stupidly I let them persuade me, unfortunately they sent me the wrong phone upgrade, when I phoned them to ask for a replacement, they said it was my fault, that I'd asked for the wrong phone and that they would never have promised the deal I'd arranged on the phone that I'd asked for.
After getting very annoyed at a call centre team leader, it was arranged that they would take the phone back and cancel the new contract, but lo and behold, I had to go through a completely different process to get my PAC code again.
Eventually, a few weeks later, after more arguments and a posted letter they finally gave me my PAC code and cancelled my old contract.
I would NEVER buy anything from the them ever again.
Phone shops in general and CPW in particular are really horrible places to visit, you step in the door and before you even get to the phones, you've been jumped by some pushy, commision earning, smarmy little git who won't leave you alone until they've sold you something.
Dont' even get me start on "free" broadband
I think the iPhone is several steps away from being a good business device but the thing that is a total show stopper for me is that my company uses Vodafone exclusively and would never sign up to the ridiculous contracts Apple are forcing people to sign up for anyway.
When we can get 3G and all the other functions currently missing and we aren't locked into silly contracts then maybe...
