When Dropping Your Prices is Bad
Even most fans of Apple products will admit that these are often higher priced than competitive products. I could be wrong but I can’t recall a single time when Apple reduce prices on any of their products. Thus, in the eyes of some, they’ve maintained the persona of a company for elitist consumers.

Well whether or not they took to heart these sentiments, they dropped the price of the iPhone by $200 not long after many loyal fans had already paid big money – even bidding online. That made some customers happy and others quite unhappy. And their decision to offer a $100 credit on additional Apple products to previous customers wasn’t that well received either.

Read Delighting Your Customers, which reflects upon what Seth Godin suggested that Apple should have done.

Treedolist: A Structured To-Do List Tool
Treedolist is a To-Do list tool that allows for hierarchical, tree-format notes and subnotes. There’s not much for me to say other than that the response time seems fairly quick. However, for whatever reason they felt it necessary, it’s a tool that you can only use if you have an OpenID – something I don’t use and don’t plan to. But if you want to check it out, keep in mind that it’s in beta testing.
