not so great
. While I completed my part of this
bargain, Gates & Co. have failed to live up to their end of the deal. Namely? No flash drive. To compound their inadequacy, the mail notifying me that I wouldn’t be getting a flash drive ended up in my junk mail box; so I might have never known that Redmond was out to short me.
Their excuse? Demand > supply. Simple microeconomics you might say. Still, that doesn’t help my flash drivelessness. Microsoft’s email invites me to download the reference files on their licensing program from the website, but somehow I’m a lot less interested now. Go figure.
Yes, I could go
a flash drive. But it’s the principle of the thing: don’t make promises you can’t keep. You’re one of the most profitable companies in the world, and you can’t scrape up the dough for a few more flash drives? Fine, but don’t expect me to buy your software. Even if I
know all about your licensing deals.
