GoGo's In-Flight WiFi Goes in Fits and Starts


Why is it that in-flight WiFi is almost always problematic? Every time I take a commercial flight, I sign up for the GoGo WiFi service — and every time I am disappointed by something. My experience last week flying on Delta was no exception. After takeoff, I struggled to connect my iPhone. After spending quite a long time making unsuccessful attempts, I gave up in frustration.

I Can't Hear You, the Washing Machine Is Too Loud


Why do my GE washer and dryer sound as loud as a hurricane? As I sit here at the beach, on the balcony, on a beautiful, sunny, warm and peaceful morning watching the sun rise over the sparkling Atlantic Ocean, something is terribly wrong. What?

Are You There Corporation? It's Me, Customer


Why do so many companies keep slapping their customers in the face and expect them to stick around? Remember the good old days, when an update or an upgrade was good news? It solved problems. Today, updates often create new problems in their wake. Today, updates are two steps forward and one step back. Updates and upgrades used to be welcome news. They used to build a company’s brand.
