Phablet Reviews: Before and After the iPhone 6

master_kaos Re:Very sad (277 comments)

My views have changed as well (not just because of apples device). I used to think 3.5" screen was perfect.. well now I don't, it is too small. However I still find any 5"+screen way too big. I have found the 4.3-4.7" screens are perfect for me, which is why I picked the regular iphone 6.
However this is for my needs -- occasional browsing web while on the road, emails, light gaming, and *gasp* phone calls.
If I was a heavy user for movies, gaming, browsing, and didn't make much phone calls I can understand the appeal to the larger screens.

I made cardboard cutouts of the dimensions of the two phones and stacked a few togther to get approx thickness and size of the two iphones... iPhone 6 fit perfectly fine in my pocket, 6+ was incredibly uncomfortable and I would be afraid of it falling out or getting pick pocketed. My mom tried in her pocket (shallow pocket) and the 6+ was sticking out by about a 1/3rd

well maybe not "completely" unaffected, but the data they got would probably be pretty much useless.

Early iPhone 6 Benchmark Results Show Only Modest Gains For A8

master_kaos Re:Can't wait to hate... (208 comments)

Exactly, same here. I original did have an Android for OPs reasons, but then after I got one, I was like you know what I don't give a shit, give me something that works well that I don't need to tinker with and that also has a decent interface.
And even though on paper my android phone specs blew the iPhone out of the water, it didn't matter android 2.x was laggy as shit and the UI was fucking horrible.
You can also do a lot with jailbreaking, but I don't even bother doing that. The iPhone just works. Now the new Androids with 3.x+ release looks a lot better, but meh.

iPhone 6 Sales Crush Means Late-Night Waits For Some Early Adopters

master_kaos Re: I just want the new Nexus. (222 comments)

Canada too. Very few places don't have a chip machine, and still use mag stripe. Quite a few of the machines don't even let you mag stipe anymore unless chip fails after 3 attempts.

California Tells Businesses: Stop Trying To Ban Consumer Reviews

master_kaos Re: Mecial Cannabis companies (275 comments)

Cool, then if you want to insulate your walls with tampoons go to costco, not a small town independent grocer who doesnt have 100,000+ sqft of retail space like costco. Do you honestly think the stock room is like a door to narnia that has infinite space? And you realize we also have to keep stock for the other thousands of products in the store? Sometimes the stock is meat, or other produce/dairy that needs to be kept cool. This requires refrigerators or freezers. Again enough room for individuals, not enough for extreme bulk purchasers.

We usually didn't run out, most of the time we ran out was because of this lady. Clearly you never had to manage stock at a grocery store before.. i'll give you a hint it is hard enough as it is. You actually think we DIDN'T have larger stock? of course we did.

California Tells Businesses: Stop Trying To Ban Consumer Reviews

master_kaos Re:Lost opportunity. (275 comments)

no it was pretty much at wholesale price.. a bit more but not enough to make any significant profit from even with bullk sales. also generally the loss leaders were overstock from our suppliers which means we got it for cheaper. But since they aren't always overstocked we could not be an actual supplier at that price.

California Tells Businesses: Stop Trying To Ban Consumer Reviews

master_kaos Re: Mecial Cannabis companies (275 comments)

Your getting confused. It was 2 separate stories. 1st paragraph was about my dad. 2nd paragraph was a completely different story about me working at a local independent grocery store (I could have made it more clear I guess).

How is it bait and switch? Sounds like you don't know what bait and switch actually is.. considering all customers got the product at listed price (and if we ran out got a rain check), except of course for this one lady.

master_kaos Re: Mecial Cannabis companies (275 comments)

Like i said TWICE SMALL independent grocer not a costco who likes the bulk purchasers. We dont have 100,000 sqft of space to store a ton of product just in case we sell out. We pretty much always had enough stock unless this lady came in.

California Tells Businesses: Stop Trying To Ban Consumer Reviews

master_kaos Re: Mecial Cannabis companies (275 comments)

Well it wasn't me, I was just a kid working there. And what are you talking about? We sold to everyone at that price. We had a LIMIT sign on it and she STILL had a cart load of product. Remember this wasn't walmart with 50 skids of product in the back, we were a small independent grocer. We let her take it a few times, but enough is enough. When she literally takes 1/'2 the product not leaving much for anybody else that's bullshit.

Let me guess you are one of those asshats who is selfish and takes everything for yourself and screw everyone else.

California Tells Businesses: Stop Trying To Ban Consumer Reviews

master_kaos Re: Mecial Cannabis companies (275 comments)

My dad pretty much does this. He says sometimes there are customers not worth having. They bitch and moan, saying everything is wrong even though the product is 100% fine. He would not have been in business 40 years if it wasn't, with almost all of his customers being repeat clients. These people just trying to get a massive discount on a product . So my dad just tells them to go to his competitor because he no longer wants their business.
It's like the people in a restaurant who eat 80% of their food then say they don't like it and ask for refund.

I worked at a small independent grocery store where sometimes we had loss leaders. Well there was this one lady who owned a local restaurant and would come in and load up her cart full of the sale item. We told her she couldn't do that and was meant for families. So we started putting limit signs. She would then start sending in her kids to get more. After so much hassle and constantly running out of product annoying others customers, the owner banned her and her family from the store
