Good blog post about Live Video Streaming using your mobile device.
Live Video Streaming From Your Mobile Device a Hot Trend
I had a saying back in early 2000. We were streaming live video when streaming was not cool. Maybe I should be honest we were attempting to stream live video.  Pulling your hair and cussing was common in those days. Fast forward.. High end processors, cheap...

I had requested an estimate for a small leak on the roof. Ryan Poe came out and then sent me a proposal for other unrelated repairs lumped into one price near $1000 bucks. My wife and I were taken back by the cost.. So again, I asked to itemize. Came back and the small leak was half of the estimate. Only a couple of inches of rotten wood at bottom behind the gutter, yet he wants to replace the whole 8 ft. Then Ryan's tone changed in the conversation as I continued to ask more questions. Then Ryan said he's backing out of the proposal. It's amazing to me how they treat the customer, and how they want to lump all work, unrelated repairs and costs together to disguise the true costs. Then Ryan gets mad when you start asking questions. Sad part was I asked for a separate proposal to replace the roof in the spring or summer. Time to find another roofer.

I've been a loyal Dryve Cleaners customer for 10 yrs.Helen the mgr. has a habit of not returning phone calls on past problems. This time, I had two shirts that weren't cleaned and one had stains all over the pocket. After three trips, I finally got a direct number from the employee. My ear is still ringing from Helen yelling at me the customer. She ruined a Tommy Hilfiger shirt. Hung up on me twice, third time she wouldn't answer. I've never been so rudely treated as a customer ever. Unbelievable! Someone needs to call Helen and give her some Customer Service training. As for Dryve Cleaners, in Germantown/Collierville, that was the final straw!

Customer Service Oriented, Friendly, Fast, Quality Work and Pricing very reasonable! Needed my garage door rollers replaced. Had called two other companies, and then I called Robert. Had to leave a message, to my surprise within a few minutes, Robert called back. He was professional, and wanted my business, and got it done that afternoon. Not like the other companies who weren't as responsive, and didn't see to care. I highly recommend Robert at Manna Garage Doors.
