Robert X. Cringely explains how Home Depot and GE have bundled one poor sucker's refrigerator warranty, just like subprime mortgages were bundled, and now the warranty holder is denying service. Sound familiar?
Looks like a reason to avoid LG, GE, and Home Depot, all in one.
And, if you are wondering which stranger just called your home, enter their Caller ID data at http://whocalled.us and look them up.
