Come one, Come all to Facebook… except you… and you… and…

Yeah, I know this is old news, but when Facebook puts up a tool asking you to import your Gmail contacts, and then BANS YOU for doing exactly that… something’s gotta be said. Harry Joiner, the Marketing Headhunter, was banned for doing just what Facebook said. Maybe it’s because he’s a “recruiter” (boo, hiss) and [...]

Asking people to join your network may be hazardous to your (network’s) health. Recently, LinkedIn, the granddaddy of all business social networkins sites, added some good features, trying to help people get and keep connected.  I am strongly in favor of LinkedIn, and I am glad they made some changes to keep up with the [...]

Of course, I am not the only person who feels that Comcast Sucks, but I am fired up about them starting up the Tiered Internet whether we like it or not (DIGG article here). There are a lot of arguments from the MBAs about why companies like Comcast need to charge different amounts for people [...]

The TwelveHorses blog has a way cool video touting more genuine advertising and the disconnect between traditional methods and the consumer’s current appetites. For me, I am constantly amazed at how employees at companies I “hire” to provide services to me (uh, that means I spend money there) constantly like giving me “advice” on how [...]

Dave Slusher of Evil Genius Chronicles has had enough with the newest, shiniest social networks clamoring for his attention: People invite me to services all the time. They want to connect to me on LinkedIn, Twitter, FaceBook. I appreciate that anyone cares and I get a little warmth from the sentiment. I’m not joining anything [...]

“No matter how cheery your customer service and sales associates are, when you don’t deliver basic services, you’re doomed to failure.” Working with iProvo was great until they actually needed to deliver on something promised. Yes, this is a rant, and I am hopping mad. If you are a blogger, your linkback is appreciated to [...]

Seth Godin caused quite a ruckus, apparently, when he suggested that (GASP!) retailers might actually become interested in serving their customers: “The most fascinating takeaway for me is this: many retailers believe that they still have the power to inconvenience shoppers as a way of increasing revenue. ‘Too many stores in that mall,’ in my [...]

UPDATE: Please leave comments about BOZO things you have experienced at your or other companies! Anonymous submissions OK I hate to say it, but I am seeing some of the most foolish and downright stupid things coming from Utah companies these days.

I walked into the Salt Lake City Best Buy today at 5000-ish South State Street in SLC, hopeful. I am looking for the needed stuff to hook up my iPod to my VW Passat’s factory stereo. I am expecting to spend about $500 on these adapters and wires and stuff, when I can finally find [...]

Four Ways to Spoil A Relationship

I am a little steamed about this, so be forewarned There’s no question that our candidates are dealing with multiple offers from multiple companies. With unemployment this low, they’re smart to try and play their cards, deal their hands, and get the best offer at the best price. Ok, no problem… But there are several [...]
