I filled my request out in the fall of 2006 and got a check for $140 in Feb 2008.
I'll admit, didn't do anything with this as I thought it would amount to nothing. Guess I was wrong.
Same here. And while some of the unclaimed money goes back to the government, it goes back for a good cause.
Microsoft to pay $179 million in Iowa antitrust settlement
Gotta love these stupid class-action lawsuits. This one netted private "ambulance chasers" $75 million in legal fees. :no:
I shoulda growed up to be a lawyer. ISU would have a bowled in stadium (both levels), new practice facilities and locker rooms for all sports except FB, renovated Hilton and an invisible proximity fence keeping all KSU and Hawk fans out of Ames.
Exactly.......the only thing class action lawsuits do is line the pockets of lawyers. I suppose I could have applied for the settlement, then sent a check to Bill Gates, but oh well.
I have no problem taking money on this. I don't have anything against Microsoft (except the Office 2007 format), but I did buy 2 products during the time period, so might as well apply for it.
I didn't get any cash, but Bill Gates did paint my fence and mow my yard.
i have yet to see anything either .... still waiting and watching for it to come ....
I don't have a problem taking money from Microsoft. I figure that since 1994, when my company started heavily progamming with VB and VBA, we've lost $$$ programming around and many of hours of productivity working around bugs in the MS software that we use.
I remember that when we switched from Office 95 to Office 97, just about every VBA module we had (and we have lots of them) broke because of bugs or undocumented changes in the Office 97 COM objects. Fun times those were...
Submitted mine the last day possible so I'm not expecting anything for a couple more months.
I got $64 a month or 2 month ago. It was easy to apply for. I know several people that didn't bother.
I got mine a few months ago. I don't feel one bit sorry for Bill Gates.
I filed for about $90 but have not seen the check yet. Granted I did file on the very last day too.
Got my $45 check today.
Still waiting for my few hundy!
I got my huge check today of $32.
Good luck getting that much. I think I had $300 on it and got $45. But its free money to me, so I can't complain.
I thought it was set in stone how much you were getting, or is this another case of only the lawyers making $$?
It says "Your cash payment was calculated according to the terms of the Settlement Agreement" and gives a number to call with questions.
I submitted mine last year sometime for $90 and got a check for $125 about a month or so ago. Not sure why i got more but it spent just fine.
