Now Playing: Sly and the Family Stone
Car companies in California and Brazil are teaming up to bring vehicles that are even smaller and lighter than the Mini-Cooper to the United States. Zap (Santa Rosa) and Obvio (Rio de Janeiro) say they will deliver teeny two and three passenger vehicles by 2007."

Mr. Big Government: "This morning, Carl Hulse writes in the New York Times: 'The drive to pour tens of billions of federal dollars into rebuilding the hurricane-battered Gulf Coast is widening a fissure among Republicans over fiscal policy, with more of them expressing worry about unbridled spending"

this comes to show you that after all the american culture is one of "Costs" whereas in the past there was a vision for the future now only "Sacrifices" are going to be made by the poor

I was pretty amazed when I read this from Daniel Gross in Slate on DellÂ’s many problems, including the ones I caused them:

Dell had the bad luck to tick off a very powerful blogger. The company is justly known for its fantastic customer service. But any time you engage in tens of millions of customer contacts, there are bound to be errors. It was Dell’s misfortune that one of those errors affected a person with a huge megaphone, blogger Jeff Jarvis. JarvisÂ’ blow-by-blow account of his Dell hell has become an Internet phenomenon.

I was going to reply but Scott Rosenberg at Salon said it best:

Sorry, I donÂ’t buy it. Set aside the idea that Dell is “justly known” for great service. Known to whom? This sounds like boilerplate from an analystÂ’s report or the companyÂ’s own marketing literature. I'’ve never bought a Dell computer. But in my circles and reading — "an admittedly totally subjective smattering of hearsay", but what else does "“known for" mean? Dell is known for being a giant corporation that hands over its customer service to bored, ill-treated, underpaid people desperate to move on to better jobs.
