Technology is murdering customer service - legally

cupid stunts

I've tended to find that the quality (is that the right term here?) of customer service tends to be inversely proportional to the size of the company.

I can understand that to some degree. Given the humongous user base that microsoft has, for example, it would be impossible for them to provide support for every conceivable issue and use case.

Maybe some kind of customer service SLA could be in order when you sign up for things.

Organic food: Pricey, not particularly healthy, won't save you from cancer

cupid stunts

Hence uncomfortable headlines from the likes of the Daily Mail: Eating organic foods does NOTHING to reduce the cancer risk among women, says new study.

That bastion of high quality and truthful reporting said THAT? I'll never eat anything organic ever again.

Re: iPhone 4S

'Apple replaced mine for about £45. Not bad to keep a two and a half year old phone going.'

Not taking the mickey here, but considering, for example, that you can get an HTC cell for about 6 quid and replace it yourself, it's not particularly good either.

Re: Do it when your users are away on holiday

Flip-side of that is there's no-one around to test for bugs/do training. You may end up adding to the sh1tstorm you always get when people come back in September.

Microsoft buries Sinofsky Era... then jumps on the coffin lid

cupid stunts

Re: Back in the real world

To some extent. But there is still a need for PCs for a large number of jobs. For example CAD, mathematical analysis, design and photography as well as many others.

I'm an IT technician, for my sins, and I'd much rather work with a full size keyboard and screen.

I think apple configurator is supposed to be helpful for apple MDM, but as i understand it, you need OSX server for it to work, which is obviously an additional cost.

So what happens to the people who own Fujitsu shares listed on the LSE? Can they still trade them somewhere else? Or do the shares just lose their value. Genuinely interested to know.

Professional Qualifications

Professional Qualifications

HI

If this has been covered somewhere else, please correct me.

Quick bit of background, I have an IT degree, and I'm doing a CCNA currently, but no other 'professional' qualifications.

Interested to know what people would recommend as a next step from a CCNA.

Also interested to know if anyone has a done a LINX qualification and whether they'd recommend it in place of/in addition to a CCNP.
