This has nothing to do with the layoffs. Of course, WITH those people
there'd be even more eyes/hands to help you out, but the fundamental
problem is that there will be ALWAYS much more demand for support than
we can ever provide - at $70/box. And the guys doing that kind of
support have to be a "little" better qualified than someone in AT&T's
callcenter, and they are therefore more expensive. Face it, i-support
will always be a compromise.
