Just check a news site or two. They all seem formatted for handheld devices.
Even god almighty couldn't make Italian transit work, Mussolini never stood a chance.
The italians couldn't even manage to invade greece once the war started. Hitler had to send troops to help out and they ended up doing most of the work (no joke). Anecdotes say he was fuming, that with allies like Italy no one needed enemies. As WW2 goes, The Third Reich would've probably actually errm
If you want a project to fail, give it to italians, I guess.
The two times I've had in-store card referrals (high value transactions: the first time was buying a P3 laptop, which was quite high end in those days; the second was furnishing a new apartment after moving to Houston), I'm pretty sure it was the issuing bank ultimately handling the call - I can't imagine the bank would have transferred the personal information they were asking for as a security check to the merchant services provider: past unlisted contact details, previous transactions etc. I suspect the call may have been transferred to them, though, rather than called directly.
I had a similar issue this year with British Telecom working on a broadband fault. The service manager wanted to speak directly to the field engineer working on the fault (different divisions: the engineer's BT Openreach, the manager was BT Wholesale) - but the Openreach guy said he couldn't call the Wholesale one directly. So, the Wholesale one called my number and asked to speak to him
it is the retailer who is supposed to make the call to the financial institution on the retailer's own phone line
To be fair, the Apple Store staff tried phoning on their own iPhones first, but none of them could figure out how to hold it to get a signal, so they had to borrow the customer's phone instead...
My apartment has carpet save the kitchen that has tile. When i moved in, i was given a checklist to note what was not perfect. Figuring that's what they would fix, i verbally mentioned the cracks in the kitchen floor and perhaps something else, and moved on. I really had no idea what the checklist was for. Besides, it looked daunting.
Perhaps something arduino or rasberry pi based or something? Has anybody tried something like this? What are your experiences? What do you use? How would you attempt an open hardware FOSS solution to this problem? Discuss! And thanks for any input."
Lol, no i did not forget Microsoft Kin. Actually an excellent example of how Microsoft manages to mismanage anything it touches into oblivion. Microsoft kin was not that bad, just sacrificed on the Microsoft inbreed management alter.
I say "Thank you EA".
As long as your Karma is "Excellent", you're ok.
I wonder if in some future code, those with >50 karma will have rollover errors.
I think I opted out of moderation a long time ago, but no amount of digging turns up such an option in my settings now. I wonder if it was a one way road? Anyhow, I guess it saved me from some of the new UI confusion.
Same experiences here, the error rate is far to high to be used in an office setting where incorrect numbers can mean millions in losses. Even an incorrect wording can be lethal.
I am just as amazed as you are. That many of us at Slashdot could predict exactly how it would play out was a nice discovery. I also fail to grasp how it is possible to so blatantly dismantle and kill a competitor by a mole without so much as a single lawsuit. And considering this is not the first company Microsoft killed and maimed killing one as large and successful as Nokia without repercussions makes you think dirty money must have changed hands. Either the board was full of drunken Finns oblivious of what was happening or they got paid to shut up and kick the share holders in the groin.
