Can you put a price on customer loyalty?

I'm mad and I don't want to take it anymore - it being abuse from companies that seem to no longer value customer loyalty. For more decades than I wish to disclose, I've been a loyal customer of The New York TImes. I began subscribing after graduate school but read it growing up and at college before that. That's a lot of years.


Today the Sunday Times, the only print paper I receive any longer, did not come. I knew they'd been on my floor because my neighbor's Boston Globe…

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment.
