The Airwalk site is pretty cool. I couldn’t find my new pair there (heh heh, “pair there”). This is the part I don’t get: WHY CAN I NOT BUY SHOES THERE?!? Damn, there are so many things I would BUY if some corporate fcuks would GET A CLUE and SELL ON-LINE!

Why can I not buy shoes there?!

Am I the only one that gets aggravated when I find something that I want to buy and the company thinks it is very helpful by telling me what STORE I can visit to buy it?! What the hell?! Look, if I go to your website it’s for one of two reasons:

  1. your product is broken or I can’t get it to work (and for the love of beer you better have a faq or something that tells me how to fix it) or

Do you really think I am cruising the ‘net looking for a picture of how cool your product is? Duh! I know it’s cool and I WANT ONE or else I wouldn’t be going to your site in the first place! Aaaarrrggghhhh!
Although, to be fair, sometimes I go to your site because I am considering buying your product. But if that’s the case then don’t you want to LET ME BUY IT while I’m there?! That would be a huge checkmark in the “Yes, I think I will buy this” column, dontcha think?!?!

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
