@Antedeluvian: I wonder if the guarantee covers sock puppets?

 What other company do you know that boasts a hundred-year warranty?

I may have mentioned a program on CBC (Canada's version of the BBC) called "Under The Influence" which is all about marketing. It is available as podcasts and streaming audio and also in text. Coincidnetally I was listening to the podcast this morning on this very topic called "Satisfaction Guaranteed". I hope that you can listen to it from outside of Canada, but if not I hope you can read it.

 

Let me summarise to answer your question:

L.L. Bean, Lands' End (he provides an explanation for the misplaced apostrophe), Fuller Brush, and Darn Tough Vermont (socks).

Also, wines have to be quite spoiled before they become malodorous... very unlike many of the best cheeses!

@antedeluvian: "I found that a fanny pack was very conveneient until I got pickpocketed on the subway in Barcelona."


Aubrey, I'm afraid that AFAIK this is a huge problem in Barcelona's subway, but also in some touristic streets such as "La Rambla".

I've only visited Barcelona for work -- too bad, because I'm Spanish ;-) --, and I really enjoyed the free evening I spent in the city. I visited the Maremagnum and some of the beautiful Antonio Gaudi's buildings, but I recognize I was continously looking after my stuff because I got prevented about this issue by my friends.

Too bad for such a beautiful city!

@Max: "I like to think that I'm aging like a fine cheese :-)"

I'd rather be a wine.  It can go downhill quite a bit before someone says "Naaaah!" and chucks it out... :-)

David, unfortunately my employer has BANNED Chrome completely.  Our "official" browser is IE (an old version at that), but we CAN use Firefox as long as we don't try to get any support from our IT department for it!  The IT department actually controls our default program settings!  Thus, if I click on a link in the daily e-mails from EET or in the "someone has replied..." e-mail, it opens an IE session.  For all you Dilbert fans, I think the name of our CIO is Mordac....

@Antedeluvian... "I have just switched to a back with wheels".   I researched a bit after I posted and Karrimor has been boiught out and moved to UK.  Doesn't say where they actualy manufacture but I'd put money that it's in the east :-)  But they still do something similar to what I had.  But (age related concerns becoming greater) wheels sound like a good idea.

> "the restriced space in cattle class aggrievates my back."  Don'tcha hate that?  But on a recent South African Airways  trip from Perth to Johannesburg they could not get the aisle wheelchair and my wife through the smaller space between the business class seats.  After some trying the SAA lady said "Well you'll just have to stay here!"  SAA business class seats are better than some first class seats I have been in.  The control panel for the seat had 14 buttons and it reclined into a full bed.  That is not likely to happen again but I tell you what, if I'm ever in the position to afford business class again I'll do it.  It's about 2.5 times the cheap economy fare I usually try and get.  And probably worth it....

@mhrackin....I have not had exactly that problem but get similarly mystifying things happening.  It sometimes helps to restart your browser, and / or to delete the cache.  In Internet explorer this is in Tools / Internet Options / general / delete browsing history.  But if you're using IE, get something else...I use Google Chrome whihc is rock solid and works well with EET.  The EET programmers don't like IE I think, pages frequently don't display properly in IE.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
