If we are going to go after Walmart, I think we should target Toshiba first, because Toshiba is a GCT (Global Corporate Terrorist). Here's a link to just a few of their heinous crimes:

The second horror story was accidently deleted, so I'm reposting it.

Toshiba Thrive Tablets Comatose, Owners Say By Ian Paul, PCWorld Jul 18, 2011 5:51 AM

Owners of the recently released Toshiba Thrive tablet say the device has an annoying bug causing the tablet to refuse to come out of sleep mode. Forums on Toshiba's own site and third-party forums have numerous complaints from new Thrive owners complaining of the problem. "The white status light is blinking but pressing the On [sic] button does nothing requiring [a] reboot like a Windows computer," said Toshiba forum user sjwheat. The Thrive issue was first reported by Engadget.

The only reliable way to get the device out of sleep mode is to reboot, disgruntled users posting on the forum say. Some have found removing the battery has helped; others say the problem is related to Wi-Fi settings while a few say the problem has spontaneously fixed itself.

Most speculate the problem is linked to Thrive's firmware as opposed to a third-party app conflict. Some users complained the problem only happened after a recent software update, while others say they experienced the issue from day one, right out of the box.

Toshiba doesn't appear to have a fix yet. But an administrator on the Toshiba forum is asking Thrive users who are experiencing this problem to send him a private message (registration required) with the following information: your name, contact information, location (city, state), your tablet's onboard storage (8, 16 or 32GB), approximate frequency of the problem, what happens to cause the problem, and any other details you feel are relevant.

The Android Honeycomb-based Thrive launched on July 10 and is Toshiba's first foray into the emerging one-panel slate market. Reviews for the new device have been largely positive with most complaints related to the slate's bulkier size compared to similar tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

PCWorld rated the Toshiba Thrive 4 out of 5 stars calling it, "the first tablet that makes it easy to do anything other than consume entertainment and apps."

Toshiba's Thrive features a 10.1-inch screen with 1280-by-800 resolution, 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB RAM, 8, 16 or 32GB onboard storage, SD and USB ports, 2 megapixel front-facing camera, 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, and Android 3.1, Honeycomb. The Thrive is priced at $430, $480 and $580 depending on your storage size.

This might not seem like a big deal unless you have kids. The worst nightmare is saving up all year for that boy or girl whose been good all year, getting the child something great, and then it not working when opened on Christmas day. You will see tears fall from their eyes and your heart will break.

Here's the previous horror story:

Dude, OWS is not about your Toshiba DVD burner or whatever it is you have a problem with. Get over it already.

You cannot silence the Revolution. The Revolution starts here!

Deal with it!

The revolution starts with your 219th thread ranting about Toshiba?

You are the one who needs to deal with it.

Another piece of crap Toshiba product that will probably sell way too good over the Christmas season. What happened to these electronics corporations that once put out a fine product and now seem to sell only shit? HP is the same way. They used to manufacture one of the best ink-jet printers on the market, now they're crap. I'll never buy another one. Keep throwing an occasional story on this forum Stuart, I'll read them.

I figured it would be better to bump your post than to reply via PM. Damn, I just did it again! (-;

One of the greatest R & B songs of all time. And one of the few great artists from that era that's still with us, at least last I heard.

He is! :) What until you see what I have up my leave for tomorrow. I've shown that Toshiba has no problem picking on people with special needs. Tomorrow I will demonstrate how Toshiba likes to pick on those of us who are people of color. Stay tuned!

I shall!
