Some went for over $18000, there's over 20000 of them on EBay.
That shows the true wonder of the "free market", when people are desperate for something,
people scum buy up loads just to stock up and make some cash.
These people make me sick, being in the position I'm in I could buy the entire stock my store is receiving and probably afford to buy a house with the sort of mark-up that's going on at the moment. I don't do that because it's wrong somebody should teach these people profiteering, that it is also not acceptable and wrong.
Well.... Better yet smash the market to pieces and set in it's place most reliable and productive form of economy, the planned economy, no more market anarchy, hell it would solve the energy problem virtually overnight too.
Man I am annoyed, what are they trying to do? Force me to live on the streets? Turns out Yahoo decided to give their search engine a clean out, although they didn't really clean it out too well at all, if anything it was a clean in, now there's loads of junk results on their search engine for "Xbox 360".
My Xbox 360 site has been ranked #5 and #6 for months now on there, a couple of days ago it plunges all the way to #250.
Great, good bye most of my traffic. Why has this happened? It wouldn't be so bad if it was just my site, but they've got a lot of junk results on the first page now. It had better creep back up soon, I've worked my ass off on that site, I don't intend to be outdone by sites that are 90% adverts with virtually no content about Xbox 360 on them.
Oh jeez, while I was at work some woman was having a moan about the Video Recordings Act, and that her children know it's a game and they wouldn't go and bla bla murder people because it's not real etc.
OK fair enough, then she crossed the line blaming it all upon "Blair's bureaucracy". Yup a Tory, anyone wearing a coat like she had on had to be one. When was the Video Recordings Act made law? 1984, what government was in power then, a Tory government under Margaret Thatcher.
Stop blaming Tony Blair for your own party's policies.
One word - sweet.
Yup, if you're machine has been infected by a Sony music CD, then you're in a big trouble, viruses are now using the rootkit (commonly used by "hackers" to attack a computer) that the Sony music discs install on your system in secret to hide themselves from anti-virus software.
This is what the Sony BMG' president had to say about it "most people, I think, don't even know what a rootkit is, so why should they care about it?". They will care about it when they've realised it's destroyed their machines.
Basically the virus is invisible because it's hiding within Sony's rootkit and you're screwed. You may send the bill for recoverying data and restoring the machine to Sony, and you can also join the lawsuits that has been launched against them.
Or you could just boycott Sony, I don't own any Sony products I stopped using them after their proprietary memory stick format, their proprietary minidisk format, their proprietary UMD format, their proprietary Blu-ray format, their proprietary DVD+RW formats, their proprietary ATRAC formats and you get the general idea.
It reminds me about a chat I had with some woman when she revealed she was after a PSP but was furious about the lack of stock (we've had like 10 in the last 2 months), and I said to boycott Sony - she said you can't avoid them. Well I'm avoiding them quite well, as it most other people I know.
