This Has to Be a First

Posted on the 23 January 2011 by Seabee
When I was back in Oz a few weeks ago my little digital camera threw a wobbly, then died on me.
When I got back to Dubai I took it back to where I bought it, Compu-me, because...wait for it... it was still under warranty.
You know as well as I do that products have a self-destruct device timed to activate one week after < i="">the warranty expires. The one in my camera must have malfunctioned.
Not only was I within the warranty period, after a couple of weeks they told me it couldn't be repaired and they would replace it with a new one.
I picked it up today.
I'm stunned.
