I used to work in a Gateway store, and since the company obviously couldn't get their head out of their ass, I used to take product shots and distribute them to the stores to display as a screensaver on all the unused monitors and plasma TVs.
Hundreds of people in Merchandising couldn't come up with that? No wonder we all got laid off
