Great customer services experience with Microsoft & give them props for taking care of their customer

I am frequently critical of Microsoft and every other out-of-touch monolithic corporation.

However, yesterday I had one of the best customer services experience and wanted to give them due credit for taking care of their customer. This very positive customer service event came right after a very poor experience with Lenovo, so I got to compare them in a true side-to-side comparison.

The school…

Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain buck the state wide trends (again)

One of the interesting developments out of the Utah Republican Caucuses was the high turnover of delegates from the previous delegates that were elected in 2010.  There were 2 articles that I read that put the delegate retention rates at between 13% and 20%based on how the Tribune and Utah Policy Daily (as reported by David Hansen of the Hatch…
