Communication Breakdown
Posted January 22, 2010

Let's face it - we are more dialed in than ever.  We carry around our Smart Phones, we have wireless internet on our Netbooks etc.  We are almost NEVER unreachable.  But wait a minute.  Is that true?  How many times do you call someone on their cell and they don't answer?  Seems to me that before everyone and their cat had a cell phone, people actually answered their phones on a much higher percentage than they do in our current 'ultra-connected' society.

Posted June 13, 2009

Walmart has holiday hours where they open at 7am.  Great!  But guess what?  It's not so great.  Some of the departments have no service.  WHAT?  It's like the grocery store opening at 6 but you can't buy meat or produce until 10.
