Good business practice tells us what is good for our customer is good for our bottom line. Sensing the winds of change, and a growing backlash against medical professionals who take

My wife and I shop at Publix, a lot! We happen to like the store and unlike WalMart they treat you like a human not just a change purse. We have had issues with the ATM outside the store, we use it because there is no fee for my bank when we do. In the past its had a lot of issues but recently its gotten very bad. So I took time to write Publix at their website. Here is the majority of what I wrote.

I've been catching up on some of my podcast listening and was working while listning to Windows Weekly with Paul Thurrott and Leo Laporte episode #18.At a little more than 15 mins into the podcast Leo mentions a WSJ article about Linux on the desktop and it being back. Paul immediately starts to slam Linux. I cant believe the ignorance with which he goes on stating that Linux is not innovating but simply playing catch up. I understand Paul may tie his livelihood to Windows however thats a very narrow mindset.
A while back a truly innovative company came about, called Vonage. Unfortunately they use modern technology that may or may not be covered by many patents. In a recent court case a judge has decided they are indeed covered so they owe millions to the company who was squatting on them (Verizon). Now the judge has decided they cant even add new customers. So signals the end of Vonage and the end of innovative use of technology without having to either pay huge license fees.
Q100 was running a promo for DitchDay that was to encourage people to go to SixFlags today, between 6 am and 9 am for free admission to the park. Lo and behold the park was swamped before 6 am and the gates closed and the freeway offramps blockaded by police. Cumulus Media Inc. should be billed for the horrible traffic problems they caused. Not to mention the thousands who weren't able to get in for the free day and the countless people holding passes and other tickets that will not be allowed into the park today.
Hmm not too surprising and definitely worth following.
