I've avoided Game ever since the manager of the local store treated me like some kind of moron because I wouldn't buy his stupid extended warranty. Even if he was right and the extended warranty wasn't a rip off, treating your customers like crap is a great way to make sure they don't come back.
I'd have to agree with that. A lot of people seem to find it hard to separate the wonderful, benevolent overlord image they have of Google from the reality that they are another major multinational corporation like Apple & MS. Everyone has a favourite technology company, that doesn't mean they are your friends or your fairy god mother.
WAIT BUT IT IS MORE
WHAT ABOUT YOUR ELECTRICITY!!! WILL APPLE PAY FOR THE MONEY IT DO COST ME WHILE I DOWNLOAD IT?????
WHAT ABOUT MY INTERNETS COSTS FOR TEH DOWNLOAD????
WHAT ABOUT MY DINNER ON THE DAY I IS DOWNLOADING IT?????
APPLE NEED TO PAY ALL THIS OR ADMIT IT COSTS $1M FOR LION REALLY?>?!!!!>!<$!
This whole thing is basically a personal rant about not wanting to pay again. It's a total red herring. Unless you are in some strange 0.0001% of consumers who's paid hundreds of pounds on apps (if this fictional person even exists) then financially this is irrelevant. If a new phone is more than £50 cheaper than an iPhone you can probably buy all the apps again and have some change left over. If people buy a new iPhone instead of a new Android/RIM/WP phone instead this won't be the reason.
I have a couple of games for PC and now I have an XBox, should I call EA & MS up about giving me another free copy? Or should I stop, think for a minute and not whine like an ass.
