The Daily Buzz

When you're daily intake of caffeine is roughly the same as a small army worth of office workers, you need a buzz like this.

Interesting tech news...
1) One that I find the greatest is this : iPod Nano Knockoffs . I need one desperately... if only they had a proper headphone jack, you might be able to listen to it. I mean, come on people... if you are gonna make a counterfeit product, at least put some pride into it... or skip the Apple Logo on it.

Here's another good one... no screen on this knockoff :
Great fun... all these fun little gadgets coming out of China.

Ask guru about what he does when he is helping someone on the phone with a pc problem :)

Nano knockoffs eh? Is the screen made of polyetherane or some shitty plastic sleeve that peels off easily, exposing the etch-a-sketch like screen underneath?

They look like great little toys... I'd like a few to play with... rofl.

Guru said...

Me too... Bet we could figure out a way of putting a SanDisk 8 GB card in there. :D

Wonder if the batteries are USER replaceable...

And Fiend, the screens are probably BETTER than the real Nano Screen - Has apple yet admitted to the problem? Is there a recall yet? :P

MTTechServ said...

THERE ARE NO RECALLS!!!!!

Sandisk would be way better than the crappy Samsung Factory seconds used in the real nanos.
Sorry about that rant, but it's the official line. Apple is replacing any with cracked screens... but that's the end of it...

Fiend said...

We replace them if they are cracked now?


...oh.... should I call back all those people I got yelling, cursing and crying then? :)

Insert rant about Apple Frontline agents here

Ummm... Matt?

Your OTHER Blog will only allow Blogger members to post.

You MIGHT want to change that option so people CAN ask you questions.

Unless you WANT the last word. :P

Oh, thanks for the link to my site on it. :)

Thanks Guru... a second set of eyes always helps.

Guru said...

No Problem...

Like your Blogs... And your comments are enjoyable, too.

It might have to do with the fact that I've lost any trace of sanity that I have had from working in call centers for so long.
