Doling out the brutal truth that no matter where you choose to get your news there will always be inaccuracies, so having a constant skeptical eye is a requirement.
I rant about Best Buy’s price-matching strategy for combatting showrooming, how it’s laughable they’re investing in training their employees about Windows 8, and ultimately why their customers are choosing to do business with Amazon instead (it’s not all about price!).
In addition, I jump on the bandwagon to discuss the Republican’s Election Day failures yet admit their IT troubles are actually commonplace in every company’s IT department across the world. Finally, I stand up for Twitter in the debate on whether or not news that breaks on the platform has any journalistic integrity.
