  • “I hate you” — Thomas Hawk’s Rant About Real Networks

    Posted by Jonathan on October 12th, 2005 (All posts by )

    This is very well done. My feelings are similar, based on similar experience, and I’m sure I’m not alone. It really isn’t a good idea to abuse your customers. People remember.

    Not to mention that this is the company that gave us Maria Cantwell. I wish they would take her back.

      Eeesh, Real player, talk about bloatware… every time in the past that I could avoid installing it, I have. POS

      Tucked into Sen. Cantwell’s bio is the statement
      “In August of 2000, Cantwell sold 110,000 shares of RealNetworks stock at about $44/share. By the end of the year the stock was selling for less than $9/share”
      If that was a Republican, the cries of “insider trading” would be deafening
