Hi all....Tale of Woe: I bought my wife a Thrive at Best Buy to take with her Back East instead of her Laptop. We thought it would be easier for her to carry around. She wanted the Thrive because of the ports and removable battery. Ah yes, the battery. I got an extra battery for backup so she didn't need to worry about the battery running out on the plane. So as I'm tryint to remove the back of the Thrive, guess what? The screen cracks! Now that's weird I say to myself. No problem I say, I'll just bring it back to Best Buy, explain the situation, and they will gladly replace it. I must have been drinking to much antioxidant liquid and been in a dream state. I go back to Best Buy(Medford, OR) and explain the situation to the store manager in an even tone(of course I was livid), and guess what? He looks at the Thrive and says to me: TOO BAD!!! We don't cover things like that, and you have to sent it to the manufacturer to get it fixed. So of course I say to himmy voice rising of course), What in the hell good are you guys? You don't stand behind what you sell, and you don't fix anything? Of couse I said a lot more, but I would be on this forum forever(hope you all haven't fallen asleep yet)' But I think I left the store manager on a good note. I told him he has seen the last of me, and anybody else I can talk too, into never buying anything at Best Buy ever. What's the point? We all may as well buy any hardware online if we have to senfd it back to a manufacturer to be fixed. Their worthless. OK, enough of my Tale of Woe.
Questions: (1) Is there a comphrehensive step by step(with pictures hopefully) instruction manual on how to get that damn back of the Thrive removed? (2) My wife would like an icon on the screen to go directly to a home page(Yahoo,Google). We just can't figure out how to do it. As you all can well guess by now, we are not the brightest bulbs in the universe.
Any and help would be appreciated, And I would be remiss if I didn't say what a great site this is. Kudos to all.
