    It amuses me when a classic Windows dialog pops up in my browser with these warnings; but it allso saddens me because I know too many people who fall for this trick.

    The Catholic nuns got me being over colored in the 1960's. I needed the guidance.

    My gears get grinded by a lack of a landscape homescreen on anything but a tablet.

    The next call will be to sell you a warranty for your Yugo. Which has to be a scam as that's most definitely a losing proposition and nobody would actually sell warranties for those. ;)

    I literally just got one of those. If i see a local call whose number is not in my address book, it gets sent to voicemail. 99.44% of the time they don't leave a message.

    I don't know anyone with a local # who would call me so I know those are fake and don't pick up.
    Actually since I've activated the Metro/T-Mo Scam Block service I've had very few scam calls.

    I got a scam call about an extended warranty for my 20+yo Honda, and somehow the MoFo's even knew how many miles were on the speedometer! I was so surprised, I hung up. Then went to call and raise some Cain, bit the number was a spoof and couldn't connect..

    mostiquo's bitting left and right and not even evening time, what they forgot their coffee? At least ran and got some Sonic Drive Thru ice cream.

    Right now not having a monitor really grinds my gears, I cannot import my photos to my ps3 via USB, and really getting just so used to this tablet. I really need to import the photos so I can select for album artwork, also need to do a ton of stuff I accidently keep pushing off my p.c. - dispite it is the same stuff I do on here, except for drawing on it though.
