Refunds for Some Korean Diablo III Owners

WSJ has word that Blizzard will be offering some Diablo III owners in South Korea refunds over complaints about connectivity issues impeding play that prompted the Korean FTC to raid Blizzard's Seoul offices (thanks VG247). Here's word:

In a message posted on its website, the company said Diablo III players who are less than Level 40, about two-thirds of the way through the program can apply for a refund from June 25 to July 3.

Blizzard will also accept returns from any players less than Level 20, around a third of the way through the program within 14 days of purchase from now on.

In early June, the company set up more servers in Korea to cope with connectivity issues. To compensate users further, Blizzard said it would offer Diablo III users a 30 day free trial of another hot online game, Star Craft: Wings of Liberty.

I wish we had that kind of vision here in America. However, here innovation means "figure out new ways to charge you more for less service or product!"

WITH the FCC's blessing!

America's biggest innovations these days are accounting tricks. Sub-prime mortgages, mortgage backed securities & credit default swaps. Tiered, metered, per-nanosecond billing (sort of a throwback to when mainframe operators charged by the CPU cycle), altered packaging to trim 10-15% of a product out without altering the appearance. Leveraged buyouts where the company you buy bears the debt of the purchase, accounting tricks to make debt look like assets and thus drive stock up, computers who buy and sell millions of stock shares in less than a second to take advantage of micro-fluxuations in the stock market (ever notice how they don't tell you how heavy trading was on a given day any more?)... I could go on.

We don't create things, we create new ways of short-sheeting the market.
