* Everything eBay / eBay Strikes Again
« on: October 31, 2013, 01:48:22 PM »
This morning at 8:00am there were approximately 65 items on my Watch List, at 10:30am there were 0 (ZERO) items on my Watch List. All active listings with end times of 1 hour to 5 days. Neither Deb nor I was home during that period of time.

Signed in signed out, played the "dust off the browser" game. Tried IE instead of Chrome, tried Firefox as well. All the same, ZERO items watched.

Setup a Call Me Back session with eBay CSR. Went through the entire mess with them. Came down to Nothing wrong with our system, must be you deleted them accidentally. After slowly counting to 10, I informed the estimable young lady from the Indian subcontinent that I had not done that, and I would like to speak with Tech Support. She had the audacity to inform me that Tech Support did not have a telephone extension. Now the steam was rolling big time, but kept in check.  :( :( :( :( Asked to have Tech Support, or Supervisor, call me back. That was 2 1/2 hours ago, and I have yet to hear from Karen's Supervisor, Tony, or eBay Tech Support yet. Of course since Tech Support don't have telephones.  ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

* General Discussions / RIP Tony Soprano
« on: June 19, 2013, 08:10:47 PM »
James Gandolfini, the New Jersey-bred actor who delighted audiences as mob boss Tony Soprano in “The Sopranos” has died following a massive heart attack in Italy, a source told the Daily News.

 Despite the reputation of online marketplaces being distant and impersonal, through social technologies such as instant messaging, they can create the sense of personal and social relationships between buyers and sellers, termed "swift guanxi" in China, to facilitate loyalty, interactivity and repeat transactions, according to new research by Temple University Fox School of Business Professor Paul A. Pavlou.

Much has been said recently of the opportunities that lie in emerging retail markets, especially in countries or regions that have been less affected by recession or economic slowdown. For many Western companies, however, a lack of confidence and basic local knowledge is stifling opportunity for international expansion.

There are two key markets that I consider to be low-hanging fruit for U.S. merchants: Russia and China.

In Russia, for instance, e-commerce will triple in volume over the next three years from US$12 billion in 2012 to $36 billion by 2015, according to Morgan Stanley in its Russian e-commerce market overview from January 2013.

This year will actually be a turning point for Russian e-commerce, which has been rapidly growing in recent years, the firm says. In 2012, online retail in Russia made up $12 billion and accounted for 1.9 percent of the total $670 billion retail trade in the country.

Almost overnight, thanks to posts finally resembling "news," the iOSphere has become an expert in industrial design, contemplating an iPhone 6 or 5S or something with a flatter, sleeker, cooler, starker, smoother, de-glitzed and overall just better-looking iOS 7.

Also this week, the continuing push to abolish straight lines in the Next iPhone; June looms large ... in 2014; and a new silicon fabrication plant in southern Taiwan signals nanometer magic.

* Computer Lab / Don't install that Microsoft update!
« on: April 12, 2013, 03:56:01 PM »
Earlier this week, I told you about Microsoft's Patch Tuesday for April 2013. These routine updates are necessary to keep your computer safe from hackers. Usually, they go off without a hitch and are really easy to install.

This month's patch was a little different, though. Microsoft believes one of the nine patches is responsible for crashing people's computers and preventing them from turning on. While Microsoft hashes out a fix, I advise you to uninstall this patch.

Not content with merely repeating unsubstantiated iPhone 6 rumors, the iOSphere this week turned to original research and to reading entrails, otherwise known as job postings. The results were, uh, mixed.

Google data showed that regular folks are more interested in "iPhone 6" than in "iPhone 5S." What's up with that? And what about those names anyway? Doesn't Apple realize what "S" actually says to buyers?

Also this week: flexible displays and fingerprint sensors, both of which miss the point and probably Apple's priorities; ranting on T-Mobile for delaying the Next iPhone, but what can you expect from a carrier that glorifies the color pink?

* General Discussions / Google Death - aka Inactive Account Manager
« on: April 12, 2013, 08:17:52 AM »
Network World - Google provided a somewhat morbid reminder of the increasing primacy of digital data in our lives with the release today of the euphemistically named Inactive Account Manager feature.

The service allows users to customize what will happen to their account data -- everything from Gmail messages to Drive content to Google+ posts -- if their account goes inactive for whatever reason. Options range from simply deleting everything to carefully arranged disbursement of personal information to selected contacts.

* E-commerce In The News / Now it's Listed
« on: March 21, 2013, 08:29:50 AM »
Oops now it's not.

eBay acknowledged a glitch on Wednesday that caused it to remove sellers' listings in error. The exact number of sellers impacted is uncertain, but the problem is widespread, and many of the sellers who were impacted said most of their listing were pulled from the site. Sellers trying to reach eBay customer service were greeted with a message, "High phone volume leading to extended wait times." Clicking on a link for more information revealed the following message:

Status: We are aware that some listings have been removed in error. We are working urgently to fix this. Thank you for your patience.

Those sellers who were able to reach a customer service rep who knew of the problem were told it could take eBay 24 hours to fix the problem, but there's no reason to believe that's an official estimate.

* General Discussions / Michael Dell takes Dell Private
« on: February 05, 2013, 04:54:20 PM »
 Michael Dell has teamed up with investment firm Silver Lake to buy computer maker Dell, the company he founded as a 19-year-old in 1984, in a deal valued at about US$24.4 billion.

After the transaction closes, Michael Dell will continue as CEO and chairman of the company, according to a statement.

"I believe this transaction will open an exciting new chapter for Dell, our customers and team members," Michael Dell said in the statement. "We can deliver immediate value to stockholders, while we continue the execution of our long-term strategy and focus on delivering best-in-class solutions to our customers as a private enterprise."

The iOSphere was assured this week that it now knows the details of one of the Next iPhones, though this one is said to be not the iPhone 6 or even the iPhone 5S but the "budget iPhone 5," or iPhone 5B.

Blurry photographs, later removed, of "leaked" iPhone components provided the excuse for confident declarations that the Next iPhone will be way smaller than the iPhone 5. Because, you know, the leaked components are smaller. The connection is obvious.

Finally, the Next iPhone, or one of them anyway, is going to $300 cheaper than the Next Samsung Galaxy S. Which means the Next iPhone also will have to be pretty close to $300 cheaper than the current iPhone 5. Plastic may not be enough to get us there. Could Apple be planning on introducing slave labor to the supply chain? Or becoming a nonprofit?
