This corporate watchdog site blows the whistle on bad customer service, poor products and corporate waste. It's a great resource for tracking local companies (through the site's search) and tracking how consumers are dissatisfied. Be careful using material on the site, as some of it may be unconfirmed material. But it serves as a good road map for finding business stories.
A cool resource for offbeat stats and facts.
