CompUSA may be out of business, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be the Worst Company in America. Before their untimely demise, CompUSA (and/or their liquidator) sold crappy broken items at small discounts; raised prices before “lowering” them, sent callous pink slips to their employees, and sold a guy a $269 empty box.

DirecTV has a monopoly on the most wonderful product ever to exist, NFL Sunday Ticket, crashes through your ceiling with their feet and then refuses to fix it, extends your contract without warning you, and tries to make you sign up for crap you don’t want.
