I Heart Zappos

This is the definition of amazing customer service. I’ve been a customer of Zappos for years and think this is just indicative of their quality.

Andrew Baisley: Mac vs. PC on Web 2.0 Websites

October 18, 2007 Leave a comment

It’s interesting that he brought up this topic. My company is working on a very Web 2.0 website and we are optimizing for Safari LAST. It’s Firefox, then Internet Explorer, then Safari. I’m not sure exactly how we’ll optimize for Mac because no one owns a Mac. We’ll either have to purchase one or use one of the screen capture services out there (BrowserCam, etc.) to do it for us.

Getting Old

October 18, 2007 Leave a comment

It dawned on me today that it’s hell getting old. My buddy Andrew sent me an IM today about a great deal on jeans.

polydeuces: http://www.aeropostale.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2644619
polydeuces: $6 pants. nice
patrickv: Maybe they were too aggressive with the washing?
polydeuces: haha i dunno,, but i bought them
patrickv: i’m too old for them. need some golf pants
polydeuces: lol some dad pants
patrickv: yep. exactly. legal requirement after you > 30
polydeuces: whew – you are old
patrickv: yep. already picked out the casket and everything

Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised. The jeans are nice, but there is no way I would wear them. Hell, I can’t step foot in an Aeropostale or Abercrombie & Fitch without wishing they’d just turn down the damn music.

Man, I’m old.

(I do have to appreciate Andrew just getting down to business in the IM. Paste the link and go. He’s been crazy busy lately doing some great stuff over at Roo so I can understand his brevity.)
