I Have Canceled My MySpace Account

Yes, I figured it was about that time. When asked in the “exit poll” why I was canceling, I cited “Privacy Issues”. As in, I don’t want anyone who willingly decides to spend their free time browsing MySpace to know anything about me.
Props to MySpace however for creating a very easy account cancellation process. Click on Account Settings > Cancel My Account > Cancel. You get a confirmation email to click on, and it’s done. Many companies, including all credit card subscription services, have a lot to learn from MySpace about how allowing easy account closing creates a positive customer experience. See this post on EFax for an example.

Horrific Customer Service at The Apple Store

I just went to the Apple store on 5th Ave to attempt to exchange my non working iPhone headphones for working ones. I was told that I needed to make an appointment at the genius bar in order to do so. The first available appointment was 7 hours from now. Upon explaining how rediculous this was, they brought another employee over to exlain the policy to me. So instead of taking the 30 seconds to just exchange my headphones they had 2 employees spend 5 minutes each telling me I’d have to come back another time to do it. I find this to be absurd. And yes, I’m bitter.
