It's true.

We once hired a field tech who wasn't very good at anything. He would go to the client's office, look at their PC, declare nothing could be done and then go outside and shoot the shit and have a smoke with the client and leave without fixing anything. The clients fucking loved that guy.

We hired another guy. Aspergers, neck-beard, super-tech type. This guy could fix any problem he was sent to deal with. Clients phoned up and said although he fixed their problem, they'd prefer that we send the first guy instead because they felt he was a better technician.

Submission + - Microsoft's Xbox One Is Failing 1

Monkey writes: Even with the price cut after Microsoft un-bundled the Kinect from the Xbox One, the console is still struggling to gain market share from Sony's Playstation 4. From the article:
"Prior to the Kinect-less version of the Xbox One, the console was averaging around 40,000 units per week. This rose about 50% to 60,000 per week after the lower price was introduced, but that's still roughly half of the weekly sales of Sony's PlayStation 4."
