Comment Verizon! (Score 2, Interesting) 395

I've been with Verizon for just a little over a year - which means my LG Dare's warranty just expired. Well it died. Speaking with Verizon, they ran me through some encantations, and gave me the bad news. Then they asked me if I wanted to upgrade - No. Then they asked if I would pay $50 for a refurbished (same unit) - No. Then they just sent me a refurb for free. I don't pay for their insurance, BTW
Another story is the time I was about to go over my minutes. They called me and offered to move me up to the next plan for $20, instead of sending me a bill with $100 of overage charges. I'm sticking with Verizon.

Submission + - Are you responsible for Inventory? 1

djdbass writes: I've just started a new position as a Network Administrator. It's a smaller company, so we don't have clear lines in our job definitions. For the most part I don't mind helping out where it's needed, but I wonder how many of my fellow Slashdot-reading network administrators are responsible for inventory. I mean maintaining a spreadsheet with all the company's assets on it — serial numbers, asset tag numbers, purchase date, cost, the works. Is this part of my job or should I tell the bean counter to count the beans herself?

So there is an 87% chance that the person can be uniquely identified.
Though taking your point into account means there's only a 50% chance of that.

And then looking at that 50% chance, there's a 50% chance that that is right.
So the overall chance approaches zero. Amirite?
