What’s wrong with Wal-Mart? Low prices, friendly old people greeting you as you enter. It’s this close to Heaven.

NOT TO SOME PEOPLE.

Channel Web, for instance. They have come up with five reasons why Wal-Mart selling the G1 at a discount is evil, evil, evil. You can read the list for yourself—it’s hilarious!—but I wanted to point this one out:

It’s Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart isn’t the first place that comes to mind when smart phone shoppers are seeking out a new device…

Oh, that makes sense. This guy is upset because he paid full price for the G1, then Wal-Mart turns around and offers it for less. So be he missed out on the discount, let’s crucify the store.

It’s pretty silly, I think. It’s a $30 discount that many people will appreciate. Why hate?
