Jun 16th 2009 3:34PM Sorry, admittedly I didn't read the whole article, I just skimmed it, but I did read this "Unfortunately, those numbers didn't translate to the real world. The 2.4-liter powerplant was sluggish to respond to throttle input, and it wheezed and gasped at anything above 3,500 rpm. Surprisingly, the six-speed manual transmission didn't earn our affection either. Shifting feel was vague at best, and we had problems with smoothly modulating the clutch due to a relatively low engagement point combined with a hesitant throttle."
Which is crappy at best.
Jun 16th 2009 2:53PM What's so great about the fuel economy? Comparatively seems pretty crappy. As well apparently, from the review it drives like crap.
What's so great again?!?!

Apr 3rd 2009 2:49PM This is the perfect phone for people that don't need a smartphone (BB, iPhone etc).
I am not a teen or tween but I find myself texting a lot. I love this phone for the ease at which it allows me to do that.
I love this phone, and my only wish is they would update the music player on it. What's with not having any fast-forward/rewind buttons or not being able to listen to music while the phone is closed?? If it were just a better MP3 player in general it would be MY perfect phone.
Jan 16th 2009 1:01PM "@Slippy: Most players don't scream for "refunds" in the form of cash, it's a game-time reimbursement they are seeking. If the servers are down (aside from announced maintenance), the duration should be added onto our paid game time."
Just for the record "expat28" was the one going on about the "refunds" for cash (during one of his rants about hedge funds, which in this matter is like applying Structural Engineering to to Lego blocks).
Myself I don't think a refunds, in any form, should be issued by Blizzard at all.
I totally agree with the rest of your post, it's what I have been trying to say.
Jan 16th 2009 11:23AM "The people screaming "scam" and "worthless" are likely the same people screaming "refund" when the server goes down for half a day. Go back and look at those patch day comments. Why would you pay some service $6 dollars to get back $8 if the server goes down? I guess I would also ask why would you scream "refund" for a half day of lost play time when it amounts to 25 to 50 cents in lost fees?"
The people that scream "refund" are the people that are probably going to give this service more credit then it deserves.
The people that are posting "scam" and "worthless" understand that this is a ridiculous service; and understand that in the real world servers go down, or get full or need maintenance.
You can try an legitimize this as much as you want but trying to recoup $2 a month is insanity.
I guess you are taking it from the perspective of the business owner; in their case this is a business gamble that will probably pay out for them.
I'm only pointing out that for someone to actually sign up to this service they have issues that need to be addressed by a doctor.
Jan 16th 2009 11:08AM Scam? It's not a scam at all. It is just a downright dumb service.
They will probably make a bunch of money off dumb people.
/It's no wonder you people elected bush twice.
Jan 16th 2009 10:50AM Why? If you can't afford $15 a month then how do you a afford the monthly charge for the internet or the electricity powering everything.
It's dumb. If you can't afford the monthly fee then quit playing all together.
Paying EXTRA money on top of money you already deem "too much" is the wrong way to solve your problems.
As well insuring your time that you are using to play a game that is a "time waster" isn't a good argument either. That assumes you look at the GAME as a job an in that case you are mentally handicapped.
Jan 16th 2009 10:27AM Wow, I can't believe you don't get it.
health insurance and car insurance all insure things of great value. Why would you insure $13 a month by paying $5 a month.
You explain that to me and you can have your cookie.
Jan 16th 2009 10:17AM The thought process for someone using this service is the definition of handicapped. Isn't it illegal to take advantage of special people?
I pay $13 a month for this service, but I have to wait in a queue SOMETIMES, and SOMETIMES I the servers are down longer then they said they would be. I'm so pissed off, Blizzerd sucks!
Wow look at this site, I can now pay an additional $6 a month ($19 a month total) so that I can recoup $1 on my original $13 I paid to Blizzard.
TAKE THAT BLIZZARD!!!
WHAT?!??! Who does this make sense to and why is the price so high. I pay $80 a month to insure two $30,000 vehicles. That's less then 1%. These people are asking you to pay almost 50% of the cost each month?!?! Are they insane?? And is that per character?
Does this "service" include times were there is heavy lag?
