I'm one of those crazy gadget freaks that actually checks out the Craigslist electronics listings every other day. Because you never know when you can get a great deal on a perfectly good device that's maybe just a few months old (for example, the week the iPod nano was released, iPod minis were being sold left and right at incredibly affordable prices). Every once in awhile you'll also get some random rumors on gadgets or crazy kooks ranting about crap. It's good stuff.
Anyway, apparently there have been some rumors going around that T-Mobile could be releasing the Sidekick 3 before Christmas this year. Some people are skeptical about this, and have gone ahead and tried to debunk that rumor, saying that the rumor is probably referring to T-Mobile Europe's MDA IV, and not the Sidekick. Well, apparently someone at T-Mobile got super-duper upset about this, and posted this wonderfully explosive rant on Craigslist (Get the full-on rampage after the jump):
I WORK FOR T-MOBILE, AND I AIN'T STUPID!! I DON'T CONFUSE OTHER NOKIAS, SEIMENS, OR ANY OTHER LOOKING PDA'S AND SIDEKICK LOOKALIKE DEVICES. GO AHEAD AND WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR. BUT LEAVE MY DAM AD ALONE BECAUSE I WORK FOR T-MOBILE AND WE GOT THE OFFICAL WORD THAT THE SIDEKICK III IS COMING OUT BEFORE X-MAS. WE DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH THE NEW SIDEKICK WILL BE OR HOW IT LOOKS LIKE, BUT IT IS COMING OUT. OKAY. SO KEEP YOUR WANNABE TECHNICAL "I KNOW ALL CELL PHONES SH!T" TO YOURSELF AND WRITE ME DIRECTLY INSTEAD OF PUTTING OUT THAT MY AD IS FALSE AND A RUMOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well okay then, Mr. T-Mobile Worker! We believe you! Really! So much so, we've posted your rum.. er.. I mean, FACTUAL INFO, on this site! Besides, you know we're the kind to believe anything. Or post anything, as is evident with this entry.
