Pipe down, for goodness sake!! This subject has been well exhausted and
there are some of us on this list that are interested in technical items and
not politics. This is an internationally subscribed list and we are already
aware of the differing tax rates, etc, etc so belt up unless you've got
something interesting to talk about!!!

I don't know what type of discount resellers get for purchasing multiple
units, but since the cheapest squeezebox model retails at $199, I'd say you
got a heck of a deal.

How long ago did the reseller purchase this unit? Should I get a free
upgrade if I bought mine six months ago, but only unpacked it yesterday and
now its the "old" model?? Whats the difference if I bought 10 units at
discount six months ago and sold them all yesterday. Should my customers
take it up with Slim?

Like they said, take it up with your reseller. Even an ebay auction has a
seller. If they said "Warranty against DOA only", then you get what you pay
for. Be glad they are as affordable as they are. Many people on this list
are among the $279 (was it $299) buyers of the original SLiMP3.

Here here, I have four Slimp3s and value them for what they are. Would love
the latest gizmo(Squeezbox) and at one time I did have. The guys at Slim
Devices have always been open with customers is my view, but at some point in
time you have to announce a new product or upgrade. It is always the case,
unless they were to stagnate.

As was said earlier its not Slim Devices thats shafting us, if anyone is, its
the CEO of UK Tax Gatherers inc, oh and the Fedexs' of this world who slip
another 10 admin on despite somebody at the other end already having paid
shipping charges.
