Oh yeah...it's on, B*tch! :lol:

Just added a comment to the good 'impartial' review on Amazon...and I see someone has gone through and clicked unhelpful on all the bad reviews... :lol: Kind of fun if you weren't worried more people were going to get suckered into this thing.
More unhappy campers on their forum, they seemed to be getting easier on grumpy customers, must have realised it's a losing battle...No further updates that were have supposed to have kicked in from last week sometime, no further games, a section on Amiga games has suddenly been removed and an Amiga fan isn't happy thinking this means they haven't got the Amiga games they promised...
It's hard to tell whether these guys are deliberately fraudulent, or just naiively incompetant. Doesn't matter to me, because their arrogant response has been disgraceful.

Are there any happy customers on that forum? (excepting those with a vested interest)

:lol: It's really hard to say. I'll give it to the customers there, they have the patience of saints...though it certainly seems to be wearing thin with each broken deadline...
The little Hitler that mods the forum I see has resorted to starting tons of topics full of...well, sh*t, just to make to look more active I think! Topics on Star Trek and Super hero stuff that have no replies...oh yeah, that'll help

More appropriate topics for new threads? I've a few suggestions...

* busted flushes throughout time
* white elephants - an historical perspective
* case studies from Sony in exemplary customer relations practices

How about,

* Inspirations in media management - Joseph Goebbels
* A case study in ethical business practices - the Gizmondo years
* Lessons in giving customers what they want in a timely fashion - SAM Coupé

>RE the 5 star reviews on Amazon.
Funny thing about these reviews is that by some random coincidence they seemed to appear shortly after I first pointed out the 1 star reviews at Amazon on page 15 of this thread!!! It could be coincidence... or this thread could just be being monitored by GG HQ. :lol: You have an audience guys... ;)
