Jim Schrempp Demo'd Netflix streaming. Friend said "would it have that dragon girl movie?" We hadn't seen it. I said, "sure". She was impressed. Showed her how you can skip ahead to the middle. Up came a woman standing over some guy in bondage ready to do evil. "Yikes," said I. If you've seen the movie you know what I mean. This is why in software we say, "always run through the demo once before showing the customer." Hah.

Jim Schrempp In a nice twist of fate UA flight full so the upgraded us on another flight and gave us $1000 in vouchers. UPDATE: Those vouchers suck. "Just like cash" the guy says. So to book a flight with them we have to go to the airport in person - who goes there if you're not flying out? Also, they have to be spent $250 at a time. Angela and I both flying to LA for $150 each? Have to spend $500 of the vouchers. It feels like United lied to us.

Jim Schrempp The selection committee met yesterday. They picked 600 to go to the next

January 5, 2010 at 1:25 pm
Jim SchremppNice way to look at it, but can you make the x-axis scale to represent the actual values? I think the point of their chart was that for double the spending you might expect better outcome but you don't get it. I think your graph shows that spending more than 3000 per person per year does not yield any result - there is no marginal return so why make that investment?
