    Maybe he could start a PC Tech Support business. How 'bout terminateyourpc.com, with the slogan "The last resort for unsatisfied PC users."

    For a fee, he'd shoot, stab, smash, burn, toss off a bridge, run over, or otherwise do away with your computer for you, while you avoid the risk of doing it yourself. He could give you the smashed dead laptop, a video of its demise, and a signed death certificate, all to make you feel better that you had finally gotten revenge on your frustrating PC laptop.

    This news story would provide his credentials for the job.

    how mad could he have been to have had the restraint to walk next door and ANNOUNCE he would be shooting his computer so please cover your ears? sounds like the guy was either looking for attention or just really bored. i know when i'm angry enough to shoot something, i'm hardly capable of explaining myself in a calm manner :p.

    That must have been funny. I can just imagine half the people at my school doing that.

    Are you often angry enough to shoot something?

    LMFAO. This is further proof that the average human being should never own a computer. Right now im a poor sucker doing tech support for HP and Compaq products. While this article was funny it happens a lot more than you think.

    We actually have an accidental coverage pollicy you can buy for the really frustrated PC users who want to take their anger out on the PC. I wonder how they would treat this situation?

    I disagree

    Hell, I've gotten close to throwing my iBook out of my window, especially after talking to Apple's tech support. ;)
