    me niether, just sharpie over the AOL label.


    Ive always said if AOL was nice they would send this discs on CD-RWs so we could get some use from them.


    On a side note some guys are attemping to collect 1 million AOL discs to drop them off in front of the headquarters.

    I saw Steven on a new (well, at least one I never seen before) Dell commercial, today when I was watching something at school. It was either Fox & Friends and FNC or Twilight Zone on Sci-Fi, can't remember which.

    At a computer show I went to last year, there with a half a dozens bins filled with hundreds and hundreds (if not thousands) of AOL floppy discs, they were selling them for a nickel a piece.

    He appears at the very end of the latest "intern" commercial. He, and what appears to be a little brother, take delivery of the computer the interns have followed through the process.

    Actually, those interns annoy me 10 times more than Steven. Like in this non-existent job market where companies are slashing jobs by the 10s of thousands especially in technology, that Dell really needs some cupcake course taking college kids to walk around and ask the most stupid questions. That is so 1999. At least they didn't portray Steven to be an intern. I'm sure there are plenty of unemployed people that see these commercials and think they'd work for half these brats and actually do something producitve. Wake up and smell the economy.....
    IT STINKS!!!!

    Not to mention the fact that if I'm an institutional investor or analyst I'd be thinking that they are wasting their money on hiring worthless interns in this economy. IT'S THE ECONOMY STUPID.
