No bid deal, they simply may want to push everything through they sales partners such as Amazon or Dell and others as the partners can offer discounts but usually companies themselves dont.

I think they simply want to outsource any issues related to support/returning of devices to the operators. That way they share the liabilities.

That's because he mis-spoke the expression, "I couldn't care less" (implying that you care so little that there is no room to care any less).

I'm in the US and I can tell you that it's not a translation problem related to coming into the US. It's still being incorrectly used and, as you pointed out, a corruption of the phrase. My guess is that people who didn't understand the phrase to start with mis-spoke it repeatedly enough to make it "sound" right amongst themselves and their friends despite the lost meaning.

I do miss the brick and mortar Nokia store on 5th Ave in NY. It didn't do much commerce but I bought my N800 there and you could try out a lot of devices. I tried an N900 there pre release. One distinct thing I remember about it was there was never any American customers in it always foreigners lol.

I liked being able to walk into CompUSA to get mine and knowing I could return it to that same store if I had to. What a damned shame. The only two places you could get an N800 and they're BOTH gone-gone-gone. If you see any CompUSA stores anymore, they were bought by Tigerdirect and they're now their outlet stores--gone is the actual CompUSA that we knew (maybe liked, maybe hated... but either way, gone).

Coincidence? I'm joking of course. Kidding. Kidding.
