One star app rating - An existential threat
As an app owner, you are wondering what just happened. You could see some harsh reviews, chatter about app crashes, some saying the new app is draining device resources or slowing down their device.

SLIDESHOW: We are taught from an early age to be careful with our money, to avoid the dangers of debt. So why is it that we, in IT, are so poor at managing our own “Technical Debt”? Like all debt, the burden of Technical Debt compounds over time, making it hard to make changes later to key systems and applications. Here are five steps to controlling personal debt that might also help us manage Technical Debt. http://cainc.to/moxOZs #DevOps #slideshare

While it is extremely likely that I would recommend Hertz (gold service is a definite plus), this rental experience was poor. Since the change to checkout, where Hertz chooses to print the contracts at the gate, I spent 45 minutes waiting to leave the Hertz garage after arriving at my car. My car also had sticky residue on the dash and on the controls on the left side of the vehicle - looked as if someone spilled a latte or some other sweet sticky coffee and it was never cleaned.
