Spotted this one at en-gadget, good read. You know who Microsoft hates? No, not Apple. It really hates DHL.
Apparently, the delivery service has hit the folks in Redmond where it hurts: in the Xbox. It seems that 21,600 consoles were totally messed over by "impact damage, wetting, pilfering and shortage" when one of the company's freight trains derailed en route to Long Beach, California.
The big M claims that DHL refuses to compensate for the lost goods, and has filed a complaint at a US District Court in Seattle, calling for $2 million in damages and stating that the shipper "negligently breached its duties as a common carrier, handler, bailee, warehouseman, agent, or in other capabilities."
Harsh words, but really, who's to blame for this mess?
* random image of a broken xbox 360- it paints the picture well though.
