  1. No kidding! And it’s not even a direct link. Meaning, they probably get ca$h for each link.
    I wouldn’t mind IF there weren’t idiotic VIRALiffic SPAMtastic pop-unders and enough banners to make Times Square look boring.

  2. Limited time offer = Limited Time support

    Free 10.3? Wow what a bonus, a free copy of two-year old OS. Does anyone really need this? $50 value? To who? It’s only $47.99 from OWC.

    It’s a notebook drive mechanism for goodness sake. How many people take their powerbook apart to swap this out themselves (only the brave or under-employed under-paid support teck ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

    Journalistic advertising about says it all.

  3. I think it’s a great deal. And it probably includes 10.3 for free because it’s a minimum requirement to run the equipment (though my Pbook came with it) and they have a huge number of licenses that they purchased and never used, so they may as well get rid of them…

    Bitching about free stuff, what the heck man?
