(RED) Fund

I made this comment on the Crave post but since it was mentioned on BOL I'll make it again. Is (RED) Failure really accurate. The 6.6 billion is counted up from 2002 and with 460 contributors that's 14 million each. ...11 million in five months is bad?

I see everybody in my school with Product (RED) shirts, ipods, and the like, which is good. I myself have a red nano, a hoodie, and a shirt from apple and gap product red.I think the problem is that they are only giving an uber small amount to charity. Like 10 dollars for a 250 dollar iPod..I mean...come on..thats very cheap of apple.

If they really wanted to make money, they'd quit product branding and start a service that has customer return. Everyone sports their RED gear as a fashion statement, but in reality, the little amount that is donated from those products is used rather quickly. When you build a business that depends on volume sales, it is bound to lose inertia sooner or later. I suppose they could slap their label on many different products, but they tread upon becoming 'out of style' as fashion and electronics often do.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
