Kaleb had a basic question for Dish Network, so he logged on to their customer service chat to, well, chat to a company representative about it. Something strange happened during a lull in the conversation, though, and Kaleb isn’t quite sure what to think about it. Is it friendly or creepy? We weren’t sure, either, and submit his chat log to the Consumerist readership for your judgement. [More]

I have a first generation Nintendo Wii and I recently bought the game Boom Blox for it. When I put the game in to start playing it would often lock up at the health warning screen and I would have to restart my Wii by unplugging it since no other method would work.

Remember Charlie? She couldn’t buy a computer from Apple because they wouldn’t accept more than 4 gift cards in one transaction over the phone or on the website. Charlie lives 3 hours away from the nearest Apple store, and the product she wanted to buy wasn’t available in the store anyway. Hardly worth a 6 hour commute!
