Over the course of this 48-ish minute rant, we cover cold-calling companies (say that 3 times fast), hiring people from overseas and all over the US, and inevitably, we talk about *sigh* "laptop life."
I've got my own very different views of laptop life and cell phone life that I won't get into here. You should put your head into the culture for just a minute or two and gather your own opinions. Needless to say, but I'M GONNA SAY IT ANYWAY, I despise the fantasy that people portray as the...
Have you ever had your Google My Business listing taken away? Happened to me. It was very stressful, and it took a full 3 days to get it back. All be it without (spoilers) our reviews. Yep. Our wonderful, well written, glowing reviews that all of our satisfied customers have left us, gone. Blinked out of existence by an angry Google.
Oh, and an Apple (possibly, we're not 100% on this yet) employee decided that taking a dump on one of our paid advertisements was a good idea. Do you think...
Today we discuss the client/customer who's never happy, no matter what you do. And we get interrupted about half way through by a phone call from my Mom. Stay tuned! Also, happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We hope you're having a safe and wonderfully awkward family dinner with that one aunt that no one likes. You know the one.
Guys and gals, we're still trying to hash out this whole Mac Mini situation. And we detail portions of it in this episode. We also obtusely discuss the scammer situation in the after market sales arena. To sum it up for you here: It's bad. Like, real bad. To the point that I ended up just taking my listings down because I never got any legitimate offers from actual local people. So, beware scammers when trying to sell your used items.
We discussed Apple. Again. A lot. Sorry not sorry.
It's interesting when you're trying to purchase a used Apple product. People tend to have an overblown sense of what the price should be for something. A 6 year old computer, even an Apple computer, isn't worth several hundred dollars. But I digress.
We get off to a great start complaining about a review for the Mac Mini. And we made some truly insightful things about the Mac products gained through this terrible review.
There's a brief discussion about why you'll never see Mac OS X...
Well, we managed to squeeze another podcast out this week. This one is all about the Apple Keynote that dropped on Oct. 30th. They introduced a new MacBook Air, a new Mac Mini, and a new iPad Pro. All with impressive hardware spec bumps.
We get into a bit of a discussion about a YouTube reviewer who reviewed the keynote, claiming that the new iPad is for the 1%. We also discuss the futility of upgrading your Mac products.
Let's get this out of the way. I was wrong about a lot of stuff on the Palm Phone off the bat. The cameras and storage, specifically. Here's a link to a review by The Verge. If you're interested in getting this extremely small smartphone, and you're already on Verizon, and you've already got a data plan and phone service with them, here's a link to the product page for the (snicker) Palm Companion Device.
We also discussed Google's G Suite of products, specifically the email service. It's...
In our premiere episode, Robert and I talk about getting started in business together, our lives before entreprenuership, and everything in between (without going into too much detail).
Join us as we go through the trials and tribulations of being business owners in our brand new podcast, The Purple Tie Show!
