well, i have seen some stupid marketing decisions before, but this one really takes the cake. we keep hearing of how the "economic climate" is tough and how everyone is scrambling for business. odd, then, that a company would willingly make it impossible to do business with them, no?
i tried to log on to kalahari at verk today and got this annoying screen :
how stupid can you get? i have heard of some websites being incompatible with newer browsers, but not once have i seen any website say "sorry, your browser is too old, you cannot give us any money".
when i called them and asked about this and why they took such a stupid decision all they could say was that they were unaware of this being the case. brilliant.
this is no doubt the work of some complete and utter tool who think it's "cool" to have the very latest of everything on the go and does not appreciate that some, if not many, people cannot change their browser or simply do not wish to do so. those brilliant people at the Post Office had a similar problem a couple of years ago, where some genius changed the website so that you had to be one of about 3 people with a specific browser to access it.
and just what sort of idiot uses MC Hammer with a nonsensical message to say there is a problem with a webpage?
there are many other online stores, i am sure they will appreciate my business.
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
