Tech Talk / Contacts Not Showing On Incoming Call - Help
« on: November 08, 2017, 02:39:09 PM »
My contacts are all stored with the country code like 1-718-123-4567 and when I get incoming calls they come up without the country code like 718-123-4567.  My phone as a result does not recognise the contact. What could I do?

General Discussion / Amazon Product Reviews - A Lot Of Fake Reviews
« on: October 24, 2017, 09:42:38 AM »
I always thought that Amazon is very strict with paying for reviews etc and I always thought I can comfortably buy something which had 4+ star reviews.

Recently I've been extremely disappointed, not only Amazon lets it, they do it on products which they sell on their own.

The way I spot it is very simple on every review you can see the reviewers profile with his recent reviews, almost each and every reviewer of these kind of products reviews 50 other items every single day!!! It seems like Amazon has a full operation of people who they send tons of stuff every day in exchange for 5 star reviews. For example the product below, each and every five star review is from people who review every day 50 other items. And usually those 50 items are the same by each person since they probably use the same people over and over...

Am I missing something?

I have found the same people coincidentally review these two questionable products..

Just Shmooze / Everyday Secret Restaurant Recipes Master Thread
« on: October 03, 2017, 05:48:48 PM »
Do people here have any experience with these fancy recipes?  Are they indeed as good as when they are served in the restaurants?...

My wife is making the Short Rib sliders from Tierra Sur and the sauce calls for 1 and a half cups of apple cider vinegar. Anyone actually made it? Sounds wayyy too much apple cider vinegar. Its baking now and has a very strong smell....

« on: February 22, 2017, 12:55:15 PM »
Can anyone recommend a comfy office chair?

Preferable if I can buy it on Amazon so I get the $8 off   :)

I see chairs ranging from $100-$400, is the $400 so much better?

Tech Talk / How Can I Get My Cell Phone To Work Inside My House?
« on: June 03, 2016, 11:14:41 AM »
I am not sure what the issue is but in some places in my house there is no cell coverage at all! I have Verizon and now that I got the Priv it is even worse. The second I am out by the door it works.

So, we were all used to that disputing a charge with Amex was easy as 123....

Lately I've had 2 valid disputes and it seems that agents from India handle it and I get no where.

One dispute I have with Norwegian Air, I had to cancel my trip which I had originally bought trip cancellation protection and they are simply refusing to honor it! So I disputed with AMEX AND PROVIDED THEM THE TRIP INSURANCE INFO and they got back to me that the ticket was non refundable! Dude! That is why I had Insurance! I keep on opening the case again and again, telling them that they should not let Norwegian take Amex for a ride and respond to the claim that I had Insurance but all I keep getting back is that the ticket is non refundable! when I call in Amex they totally understand me but they say they have no way of getting through to the dispute Dept! Anything to do at this point?

I have lots from the past and I am sure others do as well but now I am upset so I'll start with this one.

My brother bought a suit in G&G clothing, last week when he put it on for the first time the pants tore while he was bending to pick up something..... Well well he went to G&G to ask them to fix it, they give him such big eyes and tell him you don't see we're having a sale right now, we have no time to fix your pants go to a tailor or you have to wait 3 weeks for us to finish the sale!!! He figured he can use another suit so he will buy another one on sale so at least he will have what to wear. He takes a suit and tried it on and gives it in for some alteration and the guy tells him it will be ready in 4 weeks since its a sale  ??? He was like can you put a rush on it since I literally don't have what to wear because the first suit I got here was no good? The answer: We can put it in as a rush but you will have to pay full price. He is like "Ummm, I just paid full price for a suit that tore on me on my first time wearing it, you can't fix it for me, fine, you can't even make rush for a new suit unless I pay full price?   :o

And so on and so on with the return policy's etc.. Ever saw the eyes the local store owners give you for taking out an Amex  ::) ::)

Up In The Air / JFK Airport VIP Service
« on: January 17, 2016, 10:27:15 PM »
When the Satmar Rabbi from Williamsburg went to Israel about two years ago his car was driving him up right next to the plane where he got on the plane through a remote stand.

How do these people pull this off?

Here is the Rabbis escort to the Airport..
