[ale] OT: Circuit Bait-and-Switch



Personally, After my dealings with CC and their service
department.  I don't even look at the ads from them anymore.
On a lighter note I got a good laugh From Howard Clark today
about AOL and a law suite that is trying to go class action
against them.

They have a new BaS method.  Lets call it the BaS pop-up
method.  You get an AOL pop-up for a product and if you
don't click no
You get the product in a few days and AOL will put the bill
on your credit card.

Computer related.

Circuit City's new circular has a Todhiba laptop for $699.
We went to go
look for them on the
day the sale began and found no CC that had them in stock.
It just so
happens the next model
costs $1199.  I'm thinking that CC is using BaS tactics to
sell that higher
priced notebook.
