So I am kind of torn on Best buy's most recent attempt to exploit generic ignorance, http://kotaku.com/5363264/seriously-this-should-be-illegal. I mean on one hand I feel that if people are to stupid to figure out how to click "Yes Please Update My System" when a game fails to run then they should lose $140. Then I wonder why I have not been doing this... since the PS3 started requiring updates.

Then on the other hand, I feel that people need to learn how to use the devices they buy. I am all for supporting your local specialist. However, most video games systems are not that complicated. Not so complicated you need someone to plug it into your TV for you. Personally I think that if you are too stupid to set up a system on your own then you just bought yourself a $400 paper weight.

Thoughts, on how best buy is exploiting the gullible users they have?
