On The Road / Flying with carseats
« on: December 23, 2012, 01:33:09 PM »
I am travelling to Orlando soon with 2 kids, one of which is in a booster, and one in a carseat.  Renting a car from Dollar and they want $12 per day per car seat.  If I decide to bring 2 carseats along, do I check them at the gate or do they go under the plane?  I don't need them on the plane, just once I get to Orlando.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

so most bad investments are intentionally bad ?
No, but they end up that way.  It is possible for a company to say, "if I had a chance to go back and make that investment again in those same market conditions I would make it again."  I don't think you'll ever find a company saying, "if I could make that price mistake again I would."

What about if a company made a bad investment, did not have good data security or fired the wrong guy and lost $18.6 Million? Is it fair to say that that should not happen? ??? :o
  This isn't a bad investment.  This is an honest mistake.

The author there is making a mistake by comparing the El Al deal to illegal copying of CDs, which is like comparing oranges and basketballs.
While I agree with  you that the comparison is not necessarily a good one, I think it's fair to say that a company should not lose tens of thousands of dollars based on a price mistake.

« on: May 01, 2012, 10:03:23 AM »
I purchased a Mophie Juice Pack Plus for my Iphone on ebay.  Within the month, the thing stopped charging.  I sent it back to Mophie who said that it was a fake.  Does anyone know if this would be covered under ebay buyer protection? Is there any other way to get my money back if the buyer refuses?
