    Clean, LEAN and easy to read! Love the info. Interesting information that fits in properly with the title of the Blog. Loved the article on “The Key”— a great look into where one type of tech fits great in one area and the same idea of tech fails in another.

    You did indeed “strike a chord” with “someone somewhere”

    Good post, Rhidian. I assume you’re talking about Verizon because this describes their frustrating, non-customer friendly process to a T. I got so fed up with being treated like a number instead of a customer that I no longer shop there. I do all of my plan upgrades and switching by phone and I buy all of my equipment at an Apple store. Someone at Verizon really needs to rethink their approach.

    The last time I was there, I found the store manager and said, how well do you like the U.S. healthcare system? He said he didn’t. I said, well that’s exactly what Verizon has created. The #1 complaint from patients is having to tell their store over and over to multiple. Verizon retail makes you do the same. It’s maddening and disrespectful of customers’ time.
