I plan to trademark "lolcat," so don't none of ya'all think you're going to be able to make those without my permission anymore. :D

Give them time; I've found that MaxPC's bloggers are usually a day or two behind (but they make up for that by being insightful).

And wow, that's a spectacularly bad plan. I'm a Net Neutrality supporter, and I normally support the EFF, but the last thing I'd want to deal with is metered Internet accounts. I had enough of that back in the AOL days, and then again with HughesNet's "Fair Access Policy", thank you very much.

Originally a great concept, However they are no doubt closing their doors because they are overpriced (even among other retailers), rude, wasteful and generally suck.

I could rant on, but what's the point? They're leaving. Hope this means we'll see more MicroCenters around. They're not perfect either but at least there will still be a big chain store for when I can't wait for an online order.

Or perhaps Radio shack will step up and become a useful store again, selling the need-it-now PC parts that we needed CUSA for. (remember when RS was a "cool stuff" store, instead of a "cheap gadgets" store?)

How come you guys haven't mentioned anything about the EFF's metered internet plan? I need somebody to examine the details and tell me what I should think of it. Offhand I'm against it and I think more people should be aware of this plan so that we can tell the EFF where they can stick it. What does Erin have to say about this travesty?
