Why I No Longer Think Verizon is Crazy

FiOS is the Future ...

I've mentioned probably at a time or two on this site and posts on other sites, when I found out what that group of Verizon workers was burying in my back yard, which was the initial fiber to my neighborhood, I was ready to offer them drinks, food, electricity, water or whatever else they needed to keep working (through the night if necessary).

Hey Verizon! I'm Not a New Customer! Stop Rubbing It In.

My experience with Verizon is if it sounds too go to be true, it is. Why do they feel they much teach that lesson over and over?

Why I Don't Like BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins

First off, I just realized it's been months since I posted anything here. It's not that hasn't been anything to blog about. I blame Valve and Steam. They had a huge sale of really good games the week between Christmas and New Years, and I went crazy. Between that sale and a couple others before and after it, I got Grand Theft Auto IV, Crysis (including Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Crysis Wars), Max Payne, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, Mirror's Edge, Psychonauts, Red Faction: Guerrilla, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition and Torchlight. Every one of them was on sale.

Why Site Surveys Annoy Me (Or Why I Don't Do Them Any More)

I used to fill out site surveys all the time. You know the ones the various e-tailers have. The survey presents a little pop-up and asks if you'd be willing to fill out a survey after you've finished shopping. I like to think that even if I had a mediocre time, I can let them know what I thought was good or bad. Very rarely is my shopping experience great or terrible - usually just good, bad or entirely unremarkable. Unremarkable is fine, by the way; even preferable. I needed to buy X. I found X in 3-4 clicks. I bought X in 2-3 more clicks. End of experience. That's why I shop online.
