Pfizer Faux Pas

Posted by & filed under , , , .

So how many of you ladies (and gentlemen) freaked out when you heard about the Pfizer recall on Lo Ovral 28 (ethinyl estradiol and norgestrel) with a certain lot number? Like the millions of other people who apparently used these bad pills, I sure did. So did my husband. We would like children some day, […]

Surprise Savings From Southwest Airlines Screw-Up

Posted by & filed under , , .

In today’s volume-driven business climate, it’s rare to be surprised by a random act of kindness or even just a company accepting responsibility for its glaring fault. This past week we were pleasantly shocked by an airline which is even more uncommon. We’ve all watched the 9/11 security fees, body scanner charges, lost change tally, luggage […]

To Android or not to Android

Businesses treat us like crap. AND WE PAY THEM FOR IT! Why?

Maybe I should just get an iPhone. Or a Zack Morris Brick Phone.

After 8 months of up-and-down GPS hell with Sprint and a Samsung Moment, I was finally convinced to “upgrade” to the Samsung Transform. Well now this one has an interesting “quirk”. And it’s really special considering the name of the device.

Screen orientation won’t transform on the home screens. No, it has nothing to do with the change orientation setting, and neither a soft reset nor hard reset will fix the problem. Orientation will change depending on how you hold the phone when you’re using most any program, but return to a home screen and bam–you’re locked into portrait view. No landscape for you. (said in the Soup Nazi voice)

I’m told that it’s just another one of those great “known issues” that I’ll have to deal with until/if Samsung releases an update. To help hasten any sign of a fix, Sprint actually has advised me to “post on Google and the forums” in order to get the attention of the responsible software developers.

Nice.
