Today I found this great infographic outlining several of the psychological tricks companies use to manipulate your spending. The best defense against this kind of thing is awareness. Make sure you know the basics and don't fall for their lies..... [Click here to read the rest of this post]Tags: Customer Abuse, Manipulation, Market Lies
For full disclosure, FFX and 7 were my favorites, 9 and 12 were decent, 13 was barely playable, and 8 was my least favorite. If that lineup doesn't match yours, my review may not mean much to you. Fair warning
When I had some extra cash for the first time in basically ever, I splurged and bought myself a big, honking gaming laptop (whee!). The main problem with it was finding something to carry it in, but at the time there was a pretty ....

If I were to describe my history with vacuum cleaners, it would be "struggle". We have no long-haired pets (unless you count children) and we don't have a ton of carpets. If I'm being honest, we don't use the vacuum near as often as we probably should. What I mean to say is that we're not ....

Given how bad Pizza Hut has become, Dominos has been my go-to. I like the pizza and breadsticks, but what I don't like is getting ripped off.
One of my kids prefers pasta so we order with every pizza night, but when we do, we get this. every. time:
Dominos can put as much pasta in .... [Click here to read the rest of this post]Tags: Domino's, Expectation vs. Reality, Pizza, Scams - Ripoffs - Dirty Tricks
I saw a flight attendant do it and had to know the secret. It turns out there’s a button hiding in the “armpit” of the armrest that let’s you life the thing out of the way making boarding and departing far easier (and less snaggy). It seems like this would be more common knowledge, but since it isn’t I wanted to spread the word.
Rather than post pictures, here’s a .... [Click here to read the rest of this post]
It seems that the Airlines haven't managed to hire enough problem-solvers to handle the various issues they face on a daily basis. They suffer from slow boarding, irritable customers and employees, and, of course, reduced profits due to the above. Since I have about 20 minutes of time available, I thought I'd lend a hand ....

As usual with any airline that's not Southwest, boarding is a pain. People rush the line, desperate not to be the last on the plane and have to search for overhead space that might not be near their seat. That is, that's how it used to be.

Several years back, we noticed that my son was having an adverse reaction to Pizza Hut pizza (he puked every night after eating their food) so we stopped buying it. Since then we've been primarily a Domino's family and it's been fine, but I remember really liking Pizza Hut once and when a new store moved into ....

Sony will let you Play the EU version of a game, but won’t tell you it’s incompatible until it’s too late
I first became interested in this game when I heard of the concept: bows and spears versus big robot dinosaurs. There's clearly much more to it than that, but I never regretted it playing it. Besides beautiful graphics, and exceptional gameplay, it has one of the best stories I've ever seen. ....
