East Lansing, MI (PRWEB) March 15, 2005
Spyware is pesky, intrusive software that slows down computers, and bombards their users with irritating pop up advertising. One Michigan company has found a creative solution to the problem, and it involves a shotgun. The company, RetroDuck.com, posted a ÂLike Used Â Slightly Shotguned LaptopÂ on eBay this week, and the auction has quickly gained widespread notoriety. Their guarantee to prospective purchasers is that their laptop is 100% Spyware-Free.
ÂThis laptop may not be perfect, but it is absolutely immune to Spyware,Â said Sean Maday, CEO of RetroDuck.com.
The laptop was made by Acer, and saw rotation at RetroDuck.com for several years. It was the vintage t-shirt companyÂs latest loss in an ongoing battle against Spyware on its computers. Consequently, it was chosen to be sacrificed at the end of a 12 gauge barrel. It was shot twice, once through the screen, and once through the keyboard.
By Monday morning, March 14, the Âshotguned laptopÂ had been viewed on eBay over 72,000 times, and was being recognized as one of eBayÂs most watched items. Additionally, bidding on the laptop had surpassed $100.
ÂWe have been bombarded with fun emails from people who want to get in on the act,Â Maday said. ÂThe response to this auction has been amazing, and we appreciate everyone who has taken the time to check out the laptop, and email us their thoughts. The wining bidder will get themselves one heck of a deal.Â
The laptop auction ends on Saturday, March 19, and the winning bidder will pay $10 to have their Spyware-Free computer shipped to their door. RetroDuck.com is also recommending the winning bidder buy shipping insurance, so that the laptop is not damaged in transit.
