When you forward information and use your media contacts it might prove interesting to also note that Futureshop employees are coming here and now participating in slander in order to prevent us speaking publically:

I am a FS employee and a long time member here on RFD. Something that you will probably notice (if not already) is that RFD is community forum infested with people that love to complain about any and everything they can possibly find, wether or not the complain is legit.
The overall wrath against companies like FS, BB and other is just part of the commom mentality found here. Theres nothing that FS can do to please these members. If the company gave 5000.00 cash to each person whining here, they'd simply start threads the next day complaining that the 5000.00 was not enough.
Profanity, foul language, personal insults, suggestion of scams and other fraudulent practices are posted here on a regular basis and often applauded by other members.
While I'm glad to see someone responding to the terrible incident with the laptops on boxing day, I know that your efforts are meaningless as the whiners will continue with what they do best.
See you around.

Amazing how that works, isn't it. I was talking to the city editor for the Toronto Sun earlier and told him about this...he says if they're not already doing a piece on it, they will be. At this point I think FS employees should be banned from the site outright. They're slowly but surely putting themselves on the same level as MDG.

Another poster said later that there store received projected units that would be sold with the recovery discadanac wrote: ↑ [url="http://www.redflagdeals.com/forums/show ... ostcount=1]
UPDATE - Dec 28, 2007, 6:00PM[/url]
Inside the store, the store GM (?), Dept Sales Manager, Joe Strigl, and another Manager was there to meet me. They all apologized and explained that they took this issue very seriously. This Recovery CD incident had reached the company CEO. They stated that they cared about their image and there was no direction from upper management to pre-install this recovery CD on the laptops.
It doesn't take much of a leap in logic to conclude that they were given the projected sales in order for the stores to prepare units ahead of time with a recovery disc which in completely opposite of what some of the managment told the OP for this thread.

All systems being sold with a 'mandatory' $99 recovery disc (which in itself is a scam.
Breaking the EULA and the seal for these new laptops and computers.
I believe (correct me if I am wrong) that Robert made mention that only some of the systems were suppose to have the disc attached) given this did them still have enough stock to meet the min store stock they advertised for the price they advertised?
Some store sold HD DVD players as attachements to larger items and would not allow people buying it by itself have it. (I saw that in a thread, I'll try to link it later)
Someone reported (I'll link it later unless someone can locate it) that they were told they couldn't have the $19.99 printer that came with a computer unless a PSP and/or expensive USB was purchased.
Not sure if it is illeagal in the strictest sense of the term given that it was advertised as a door crasher but some locations have as few as 2 of the hd dvd players.
Anything I am missing from the list?

have to disagree there. the letter on the website is a good step, but why is it buried and not on the front page?

I also can not remember where this was mentioned but I think the scenario was that the customer in question was in line for the HD DVD player but only buying the HD DVD player, while other people further behind this customer were inline for a tv and the player. The ones in line for the tv and player were allowed to purchase the package deal early, effectively jumping the queue.

yeah I don't remember any keywords that wouldn't be in a lot of other posts or threads to really track that one down or who posted it. I don't think I'll be able to find that post at all. The printer one was easy at least since there weren't too much talk about printers.Evil Baby wrote: ↑I also can not remember where this was mentioned but I think the scenario was that the customer in question was in line for the HD DVD player but only buying the HD DVD player, while other people further behind this customer were inline for a tv and the player.
