Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

Why not push for a safer working environment?


If there were a hotel chain that was known to pay better wages to the housekeeping staff (the Costco of the [more]

Re: A dozen reasons the Apple Watch will fail

It seems to me that it would still be useful for 2 of the 3 activities you mentioned, unless you usually run and bike underwater.

Re: A dozen reasons the Apple Watch will fail

Re: MSFT not learning from its mistakes

Re: What?
