This will be short, but I need to address it. If you haven’t already heard about this, I’d be surprised. But just in case, here’s the gist: Kevin Smith, yes, THAT Kevin Smith, who is the director of the new Bruce Willis movie “Cop Out,” and previously directed the films “Clerks” and “Chasing Amy,” got kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight Saturday for being too fat. Southwest instituted its “Customer of Size” policy over 25 years ago, and the pilot enforced it by deeming Kevin a safety risk to the entire flight and demanded he be removed from the flight. Knowing that he’s a celebrity, he took advantage of the groundswell and used his Twitter account, @ThatKevinSmith, to turn his massive following against the company.
I remember back in 2007 when iPhone was first launched. I bought one the day after launch. It was the “must-have” device that was unfortunately out of a lot of people’s price range. This made it a luxury item. For a few months, if you had an iPhone, you were the man. Everyone wanted to see it, and everyone wanted to play with it. ”Oooh, ahhh” they’d say as they swiped through photos. Or “Whoa” as they felt the benefits of a multi-touch capacitive touch screen display. Or “holy shi-” as they felt the industrial design of the phone. An aluminium-like back, smooth curves, etc. Now, it’s “Oh, you have an iPhone? Me too! Cool! What’s your favorite app?” (more…)
A snippet from my comment I posted here.
I’ve been using Cha-Ching since the initial beta giveaway through MacHeist 1.0 years ago. I love the app, both on the iPhone and the Mac, but unfortunately, I have to say I agree with you. I’ve never been impressed with this “company” in terms of release dates or customer support. They never communicate with their customers, ever. That blog post almost caused me to have a heart attack. Cha-Ching 2.0 golden master was supposed to be ready months ago. Yet, we’re still stuck with a beta that won’t even open. I did exactly what you did – I rolled back my clock, added yesterday’s transactions, and exported the file. I’m off to a company who actually cares about its customers and doesn’t give lame ass excused out all the time about how this or that happened. Midnight Apps has been, and continues to be, a shit magnet. Sorry, Juan. I love your app, but you have some serious work to do as a company. Maybe I’ll come back someday, but for now, see you later!
About two weeks ago, my Econ professor was talking about credit scores, the credit industry, etc., and he suggested that we all start trying to build some credit for ourselves so that by the time we’re out of college, we will have established ourselves and we’ll be ready for the “real world.” So, what did I try and do? Go out and get a credit card, of course!
