Technology & Fanboys @TMobile @Sprint @Windowsphone @BlackBerry @MobileNations

Dear T-Mobile. I walked into one of your stores today to discuss switching to T-Mobile from one of your competitors. When asked why I wanted to switch (an odd question – why does the clerk care why I’m switching? He should simply be willing to take my money), I told the clerk that it was because of my interest in the Nokia 925. He sneered and said, “Oh, Windows Phone? Why are you interested in that? You know, the GS4 just came out.” (Again, a stupid question. He shouldn’t care why I want a WP8 device, he should just care that I’m there to give your company money!)

I responded kindly regarding my interest in the WP platform, that I currently have an Android device, and that if I didn’t switch to WP8 I’d likely switch to the new Blackberry Z10. He responded, “Oh, we have Blackberry in stock” and escorted me over to it. “Good luck making it work. The UI isn’t very intuitive.” He was kind enough to even give me a small instructional flier. I picked up the device and zipped right through it. He was shocked! (You know, because, how could someone possibly know how to use something that isn’t Android? Oh wait, you mean, some people actually follow websites like Mobile Nations and learn about the latest and greatest in the mobile tech world?) Seriously, he was stupefied. “You see what I mean? It’s not very intuitive.” “I seem to be managing it just fine,” I replied. He continued to argue with me and say that Android this and Android that and blah blah blah blah blah….

I thanked him kindly and left. You could have gained a customer today. Instead, your Android Fanboy clerk blew it.

Quote of the Day – Robb Allen

Discussing public schools forcing children to accept morals that are not their own:

Teaching middle schoolers the proper method for fisting or how to act like lesbians is beyond the schools’ authority.

 
 

Too Hell With Your Rights

Pay attention to the words of the petty tyrant currently ruling NYC:

“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry, but we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”

Because you cannot protect yourself, only the government can do that for you! Bloomberg is pushing for this and pushing hard. If you can’t see it, wake up. Pay attention, get involved. The methods of tyrants and dictators do not change. Do you know enough history to see the signs, to know what is coming?

 

Jay asks…

I wonder what kind of ties to the Obama administration we’d find if we actually had a free – or at least curious – press?

Indeed. I guess they can’t be eeeeeeevil 1%ers if they’re Green 1%ers?

I’m the only one professional enough…

TSA Agent sends himself and five coworkers to the hospital after thinking a can of pepper spray is a laser pointer. Jay G. laments, “Remember, these are the folks that former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle insisted would not be professionals unless they were Feds…”

Same Question, Same Answer

Jay takes the question “Why Do You Need a Gun? You Can Just Call 911…” and answers in a way that must make the antis smile. Why do I think it makes them smile? Because this is what they want.

They’ll deny it, of course. “We don’t want people to die!” they’ll emphatically scream. Unfortunately, they do. Understand, they don’t want you to take care of yourself  because your dependence on them is their sole reason for living. It makes them feel important.

Unfortunately, it also makes you dead.

 

Economics for Dummies

Tam lays it out plain and simple, this time with more facepalm!

When gas is up, it’s inflation. When bread and milk is up, it’s inflation. When gold is up, it’s inflation. When the average price of anything goes up, it’s a sign of inflation…

Except stocks. When the average price of stocks goes up, it’s because the economy is strong.
