Just had a look at the article about Gateway and the small claims court
and noticed the following two interesting bits :
"Mr Barry Nelson, Gateway's Europe, Middle East and Africa group
counsellor . . ."
- Hello ? Group counsellor ? What on earth does that translate into
in normal speak ?
"He claimed the failed CD-Rom may have been the result of overuse which
can cause it to burn out."
- That's a new one on me. I presume he is talking about the drive
here. There isn't really much to burn out with a CD drive except for
the drive mechanism, and unless he was using it a *lot* (and changing
speeds, and other unlikely things) I can't really see a drive burning
And this was entered as evidence ?
