eBay has gotten worse and some tech wrapups…

First of all, in fairness, rant on:

I have been selling things on eBay for more than ten years now. They, eBay have gone downhill in their customer service. But now, their new return policy is set up in such a way that it makes it impossible for me to continue my relationship. I am advertising a few things right now when they sell I am shutting down my eBay account and looking for other places to sell things online.

Rant off

I know letting silly things like that shouldn’t get to me. Water off the ducks back as my father used to say. I won’t go into my decline and fall of customer service rant again either.

I got my second 5g experience yesterday. I was connected to my MiFi via Wireless (WiFI) and the MiFi was connected to the Verizon network via 5g. I was able to download a document and a slide show I needed in less than 2 seconds. (over 49 meg of data). That was amazing, since, I needed the slide show for the meeting and I had left it on the website where we store customer stuff. It was an incredible experience! I had four devices connect (two tables, two phones) and had no performance issue. I updated 23 applications on one of my tablets because I forgot to do it while connected at home. The reality of that was impressive. Next time I am going to also include a meeting (Webex, Teams or GoToMeeting) so I can test that as well.

On the humor side, I was going through cables in my office yesterday at lunch. I realized that I officially have more cables that I need. I probably have had more cables than I needed for many years, but in particular, I realized yesterday that I had more cables than devices. Some of that is having multiple cables to charge phones and tablets. Some of that is that I haven’t thrown cables away.

One of the things I am going to do over the next few days Is get a Goodwill cable box together!

  • Do you have more than one cable to charge your phone?

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?

  1. I have heard of but never used eBay. Only Trade Me and that is not much.
    I looked at eBay and they are not much better at selling art work than our trade me.
    Trade me sells good art work hand done, top price for most $10.00 if you are lucky, so I gave up trying to sell art work on line and for that matter, our NZ art galleries charge 50% commission or even 60% on what you sell plus you have to pay up to $1,000.00 to exhibit your work.

    Art does not profit most artists and that is that.

  2. Customer service rants don’t bother me. I’m glad it’s not just me.
    Cables, phones, … you know me – I don’t really have that problem so much.
    Side note: We always used to refer to many cables and wires as ‘spaghetti’ in the lighting biz.
