Do NOT believe everything you read in ADs

Image
Yes, it's that time again folks. Time for me to share with you a little bit of wisdom in advertising.Bait & Switch is illegal in the USA. Hello OvernightPrints.com I was so looking forward to taking advantage of your "www.OvernightPrints.com/HugeSale -500 4X6 Postcards for $19.95.Use Code 500PC. Limited Time Offer!" But you left two very important words out of your Ad; "SINGLE-SIDED" See when someone like me wants to print postcards for a really great business we want a nice color image on the front and a little bit of black and white text on the back and then we proceed to tell everyone how awesome you are. But when we get to the shopping cart and find out what's below, we call in and we sound as surprised as your agent does when they say "Oh! no, that's for the Single Sided cards, didn't the ad say that?" The answer is...NOPE it sure didn't. So now we take our money and our business back to VISTAPRINT because even though the do a ton o…

Thanks AT&T...

For at least offering to help on Twitter that is. Hope this guy Jason did not lose his job after stepping up and asking what he could do to help with the iPhone situation.I told him what he could do, but so far only hear the sound of crickets chirping in the form of a response. Personally not surprised. I'll keep fielding the questions of those writing in claiming to be from newspapers and we'll see which one has the stones to print things. Someone out there will and will probably win a PutzPuller for it...Or was that Pulitzer...either way. Happy Friday by the time you read this!!

The Customer Service Difference between AT&T Small Business & Apple Computer is...

When you walk into an Apple Store and say you run a small business, they bend over backwards to get you out the door with a smile on your face. AT&T on the other hand...Not the same story. Thanks Apple Computer for helping me this morning. The new Magic Mouse is working fine. And the matter we discussed about the website has been detailed and sent up the line to the right person as I promised it would be. You folks in Scottsdale Quarter Apple Retail ROCK! Now, with regards to AT&T...first the retail side of things. Let's take a walk back a couple of years to the first iPhone shall we. Had a few problems with it, did not get serviced by AT&T, was told to take it to the Apple Store and they'd help me out. At the Biltmore in Phoenix...walked in, explained the issue, in less than 5 minutes had a brand new iPhone in my hand ready to go. Biltmore Apple Store...you ROCK! Come forward to a year ago, my wife decides she wants an iPhone. We try to sign her up on my reta…

So all the fuss about Android 2.1 is???

I mean come on people! Let's get real! So I did. I got real. I went down to my local AT&T store to try out a phone on the same network as the iPhone 4 which of course has all these problems to see what I was really missing about Android. Okay, so the screen is BIGGER on the Samsung...what was that phone model number, give me a minute, the Samsung Captivate...which has a 1ghz processor, 16gb of storage, a larger screen than the iPhone4, and it runs ANDROID Mike!!!! OH MY, get out my boots.And then there's the iPhone 4. Let's look at that one shall we Johnny!
Here we are Mike, the iPhone 4 from Apple. First exposed by that group of incompetent losers at Gizmodo is some of the worst photographed images in the history of planet earth, sports a 1GHZ processor, 16gb of storage and it runs iOS 4.0.1 from Apple Computer!!!!So what was the test I chose to do? Simple. Google Earth! Both phones have a GPS in them, of course launching the app should not take that long, and I am s…
