Just how fucking stupid... oh, never mind.

Something about "A fool and his money..." and "There's a sucker born..." seem to ring a bell.


Clueless customers pay for iPod lessons

Only at Selfridges

By Nick Farrell: Monday 16 January 2006, 06:18

OXFORD Street department store Selfridges is onto a winner with clueless punters who are after an iPod as a fashion accessory.

It is charging them £100 for a 40 minute lesson on how to use their new iPods, when Apple will do it, round the corner for free.

A Selfridges spokeswoman said the courses were one-to-one "iPod Survival" sessions and follow questions from its dimwitted customers on how to use iTunes, installing and deleting videos, creating playlists and downloading Podcasts. The courses are given either in-store or on a home visit.

Selfridges knows its customers, well. Last year it set up a SpeedPod service in which CDs are loaded on to the music players for a fee. Apparently it was kids and old people who took them up on that service.

what do you expect. their absurd government policies have created a culture where people are constatnly told they cant possibly take care of themselves. and since there is no government ipod program, they need to find some handholding before their heads explode.
