Tech Tip: Google a Recall

Tech Tip: Google a Recall

The next time a gadget or home appliance is giving you trouble, here's some sage advice: google to see if there's been a recall on the product. Why bother? Well, we don't always hear about all the recalls out there, and it worked in Wise Bread's favor....

Wise Bread had a DVD player on the fritz and before they decided to toss it, they went online to see if there had been any problems with the machine. What they found, the DVD player had been recalled and a brand new shiny machine is being shipped to them at no cost. It might be a longshot, but definitely something to look into if you're ever frustrated with a device.
