Bethesda can't seem to get out of its own way these days. The company has been beset with complaints about Fallout 76, a game that was highly anticipated and launched to terrible reviews. The unstable and bug laden game pushed some to ask for a refund on the title, which Bethesda agreed to for some gamers early on before reneging on that refund promise. A serious error on the Bethesda support website resulted in support tickets being viewable by anyone who went to the support page. Details on those support tickets that could be seen by anyone included the customer name, email address, and other... Read more...
When a mistake is made at a giant technology company like Microsoft, Apple, or Amazon, customers expect them to disclose not only how the breach happened, but what they did to fix it.

The email received by one Amazon UK customer, which can be seen below, starts off stating that "our website inadvertently disclosed your name and email address due to a technical error." The email doesn't explain what exactly the technical error was but does note that the error has been fixed. Amazon... Read more...

If you sign those agreements, and then turn around and break them, bad things can happen. An Xbox One gamer who was participating in the beta for Bethesda's Fallout 76 learned this lesson the hard way. To gain access to the beta, all payers had to click to agree to an NDA that prevented them from taking photos, video, or allowing someone else to watch them play the game. The player participated in the beta last Saturday and tried to become famous... Read more...

Best Buy isn’t exactly careful when it comes to putting out products or advertisements for new gear before it's time for an official release.

A Redditor user named GroveStreetHomie went into a Best Buy store to pick up a Chromecast device for a new TV. However, the Redditor noticed that the device's packaging was different. Assuming...
