Swiffies for...

Let's balance out every milkshake with a swiffie. Everyone else on the internet only complains.

-

So I bitched about AT&T DSL and it's only fair that I throw them a bone when deserved. In the process of transferring service to my roommate (fairly straightforward), I asked that a 411 charge be removed from my bill because we only have the landline to get DSL, and there's not even a phone hooked up. They credited my account without a question.

btw, why do all these phone trees ask for your account number before they direct you, and then when you're talking to a person, they just ask for it again? I was transferred twice, and I had to give the number 4 times.

Oh, I thought "cross-shipping" meant they sent you a new one right away, before they received the old one you sent back. Still makes intuitive sense that that would be the term but I'm glad to be corrected.

Avoid the Dyson, we have had several Dyson products all died 2-3mo out of their warranty and it would be cheaper to buy a new one then get it repaired.

Unfortunately not too many independent Dyson shops. I thought my Hoover was broken. Took it to Berkeley vacuum and $23 later it was good as new. I'm sure if I sent it to the factory it would have been much more.

Have a floor and a handheld Dyson, both Animal models. No complaints.

What a journey.
we've had dyson since they hit the market here. The extension tube cracked and the old duct tape was a poor solution. I think I got a third party part off of eBay for $15??? Seems to work.
I like most of what Dyson tried to engineer in. But some things not so much. But I nitpick any old appliance design.

This is a cool labeling move in the EU: http://www.dyson.co.uk/energy-ratings.aspx

I seem to remember reading somewhere that Dyson had developed really energy-efficient micromotors (for use in those hand dryers and stuff), but not finding it in 30 seconds. That'd be cool, if true.

Have to admit, Dyson is the only bagless vacuum I've ever had that's worked satisfactorily. Accept no substitutes.

El Jeffe, like Nature, abhors a vacuum.

JBL/Harman
My year old Soundfly Air stopped maintaining wifi connection. JBL (Easter Sunday) offered to replace this which I paid $40 with ANY up to $220 dollar items that Harman/JBL sells.

NICE

Monoprice. They forgot to include the speaker wire that was the reason I ordered 2-day. They didn't respond to my email right away, but once I got them on the phone, they sent it overnight (AM, even).

A few. They don't have a lot of product and everything they do carry is quite expensive in the store (much cheaper on their website).

The cripper. I got the medium length one and I can pick up things as thin as a credit card off the floor...

I look at that main body and think carbon fiber. Make it.

That's way better than the ones I've seen. Hell, I could use help picking up credit cards. Did you get the knife attachment? Would be cool if it was retractable.

I made a carbon fiber spoon once. It was really thin and fast.

A straw for noodles. For those of us who need to eat faster.

Nope, I'm not safe with knives...

You can just wear the knives for formal occasions, like your board meetings. Then we won't be hearing of any issues with them.

ddt, you're onto something there. http://gizmodo.com/chopstick-straws-yep-will-change-how-you-eat-ramen-fo-1278468818
