  • WHO’S DOING THIS STUFF? (OUTSIDE OF EDUCATION)
  • WHO’S NOT: DELL HELL June 21, 2005: Dell lies. Dell sucks. I just got a new Dell laptop and paid a fortune for the four-year, in-home service. The machine is a lemon and the service is a lie. I'm having all kinds of trouble with the hardware: overheats, network doesn't work, maxes out on CPU usage. It's a lemon. But what really irks me is that they say if they sent someone to my home -- which I paid for -- he wouldn't have the parts, so I might as well just send the machine in and lose it for 7-10 days -- plus the time going through this crap. So I have this new machine and paid for them to FIX IT IN MY HOUSE and they don't and I lose it for two weeks. DELL SUCKS. DELL LIES. Put that in your Google and smoke it, Dell http://www.buzzmachine.com/archives/cat_dell.html
  • Dell had a “hands off ” policy regarding bloggers Can you afford to have a “hands off ” policy?
  • Customers are your best customer support agents and marketers if only you allow them... and respect them enough to listen to them.
