If you replaced Audi with BMW then you'd have one of my old bosses pegged.

Locking lug nuts on a Miata. A nice set cost under $25.

the real CEO insisted this guy go off to a luxury rehab for 2 weeks over christmas. hes no longer darting around the office, constantly sniffling. he also shaved his velcro stash

one of my colleagues caught him blowing bloody boogers in the bathroom once. took a pic for proof. O.o!

That's sort of what they say about wal-mart - That walmart never ran anybody out of business, it was the customers voting with their wallets that did them in. Same thing is sort of true for Amazon.

And Apple is the only company in the world able to sell things at high price and high volume. They even have a special section in one of my business textbooks explaining how much of an oddity that is. Every other business is either low price high volume, or high price low volume like Lamborghini or Tiffany's.

the fact i can mindless peck stuff off on amazon that shows up tomorrow, sunday, means they still win.

no one's even trying to compete with it.

today -

new crimpers
new strippers (small gauges)
100 pack of random size clear sticky rubber pads
fresh undershirts, boxers, n not-work socks.


same thing happens at work. we have a board all "things" go on. if it lasts the week on the board as needed, it gets ordered, but we do "emergency" orders eVERY flipping day.

Aye, I can't count the number of times Amazon's quick shipping has saved me from headaches. When I was fleet manager at a company way out in the boonies I used to have to place an order with Napa or Rockauto and wait who knows how long before the parts to get a truck back up and running showed up. With Amazon the parts would be on our front door in two days or less and I wouldn't have to make the drive to Napa to pick them up. Huge gains in productivity there.

Apple are the most successful advertising company in the world, their greatest achievement is to make people believe they pioneered the mobile phone and thus deserve all the credit.

Correction, second most successful advertising company.

General Motors is the single largest and most successful advertising company on earth. They have also convinced people to spend top dollar for mediocre at best products. Funny how that type of business makes them so much moolah whether they're selling cars or computers.

They haven't really offered that since the Powermac G4 tower.
