I worked from home for three years and during that they never knocked on the door for parcels at all. I'd get a card saying that they tried to deliver it but nobody was home so I have to go pick it up. Bullshit, they never even tried to deliver it.
Why does Texas think cars are so special and require special laws for their sale, if they truly were looking out to protect sales jobs in Texas then they would just blanket ban the sales of ALL items direct from the manufacturer. That would mean no more Apple stores in Texas, I would be ok with that.
CWmike writes "Steven Sinofsky, the executive in charge of Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system and the driving force behind the new OS, is leaving the company effective immediately, Microsoft announced late Monday. Sinofsky was also the public face for Windows 8 and its new Metro interface, posting constant updates in a Windows 8 blog that charted its development. His last post, fittingly, was entitled 'Updating Windows 8 for General Availability.' The OS was officially launched at the end of last month. According to the All Things D blog, there was growing tension between Sinofsky and other members of the Microsoft executive team, who didn't see him as enough of a team player. But Microsoft's official position is that the decision was a mutual one. Sinofsky had only good things to say about his former employer." Link to Original Source
