Just got LaptopJenny back from HP... and it's broken!
It shuts itself off after about 5 minutes of use... clearly they screwed up a heatsink or something.
I wonder if situations like this are part of the Doc Searls vision of VRM. A way for use to pool our data (ratings and reviews) outside of the vendor silos. I certainly hope so.
We could also use to to gather intelligence of what our CongressCritters are doing. ;-)
I'm tired of being a powerless pawn.
