Updating: First Kittens … Now Cash?
Those who think mass media will go away, this is a lesson in why not. How many people might have complained about this policy on blogs and in forum messages? It took TV coverage to get action.
I read the messages about this in this forum and someone had even appealed directly to Jobs:
I’ve been e-mailing Steve Jobs for weeks now – at least six total emails over four weeks, telling him how badly I felt that I couldn’t buy an iPad since I didn’t have a credit/debit card.
And now this? A TV station picks it up and she gets a free iPad?
(I’ve edited the post due to some disgusting remarks in it. In fact, too many of the posts there evidence a clueless smugness that is downright disgusting, so I wouldn’t advise going there.)
So, if TV like that ever goes away, good luck with your complaints!
