Remember my camera issues?. After the second time of having to send my camera back (through Best Buy) for repairs, I said:
I still love Best Buy because they send my camera off and deal with the repair company for me, they yell at them for me, they send mean notes for me, and they listen to me cry and don’t judge me. The repair company that has my camera is in Conneticut and they seem to be the ones with issues. Now, I’ve looked them up and they come highly recommended so I’m not mentioning them here because my bad experience may be a one time dealio.
I refused to say the name of the repair company because I didn’t want someone to avoid them based on my BAD experience. I was hoping it was just a one-time thing. Even though they sent my camera back with one of the problems still there (after TWO visits, but we’re not sending it back for a third try until after summer…maybe never now). Tommy just sent me an email that said:
TMZ has uncovered the story behind the stolen Brangelina baby shower photos!
Here’s how the photos were probably stolen… James Haven, Angelina’s brother, was the original photographer. His camera broke upon his return home,so he brought it into Best Buy, where it had been purchased, and asked for it to be repaired per its warranty. Best Buy then sent the camera to Precision Camera and Video Repair in Enfield, CT. According to sources who spoke with TMZ, Bill Keyes and Adam Beckwith, two of the repair shop employees downloaded the photos from the camera and showed them around and allegedly offered them for sale.

Here is the article on TMZ if you want to see the original source. So, there you go! Precision Camera and Video Repair is now officially out of the Sucky Service closet so I can openly bash them and not feel bad.
Did I mention that even though my camera has been back for awhile, it’s still not fixed? One of the orignal problems was an issue with the USB port on the actual camera. Now, that was a low-priority issue since it doesn’t keep the camera from working and I just use my card-reader to get pictures off, but still. After the summer we’re going to have to send it back for the THIRD TIME. Maybe Best Buy will just send my camera to the manufacturer this time.
So, not only do they suck at fixing cameras? They also like to invade the privacy of celebrities. My favorite celebrities, to be exact. DAMN THEM!
