McFarlin used a spare key that he found lying around? Unbelievably lax security. I would assume A: some contractor left it where it was easy to find, and B: that same contractor is about to get slapped with a big fat lawsuit.
When I was in the market for a TV I went to check them out at Best Buy. Then, like most people, I bought the one I liked online and saved a bundle. And I didn't have to deal with some BB drone pressuring me to buy overpriced crappy cables or worthless "Geek Squad" support.
Schulze is about to get a quick education as to why Best Buy has been in decline for years. He's throwing his money down the drain for his ego's sake. I predict his misguided efforts will fail and BB will declare bankruptcy within 5 years.
It's interesting to note how Ballmer's line on competing with Apple has changed over the years. In 2007, when the first iPhone came out, he dismissed it out of hand. He assured an interviewer that the iPhone would die a quick and painful death and that Apple "won't sell more than 500" of them. He then went on to boast how Microsoft had already been in the mobile phone business for years and their phones were far cheaper and covered a whole range of models. An upstart like...
Sure it was thuggish. And Apple's ploy to grab the iPad name by setting up a phony company was sleazy. Big deal. This is business, not a campfire sing-along. If I were Proview I would have held Apple's feet to the fire for this too.
Anyone who says they wouldn't do the same if they were Proview's CEO is kidding themselves.
