    Samsung technician damages a customer's tv to weasel out of repairing it (skip to 25 seconds in)



    Reddit thread

    Looks like they sent him a new TV, and fired the guy

    Yeah, that's pretty mental.

    Reading the thread, one thing that I thought of was why the tech did this.

    Sure, Samsung fired the guy, because damaging the customer's stuff is terrible PR.

    But, at the same time, it's likely that they have performance targets, quotas, metrics, etc in place to try and minimize costs, and these actually created a "perverse incentive" to actually try and pull shit like this.

    So they got rid of the guy they caught doing this, but that doesn't mean they got rid of the incentive system that rewards such behavior.

    Samsung also finally has OLED tv's now instead of inferior QLED screens. They use LG's panels but apparently, at least for Dutch consumers, it's a coin toss which panel they put in the same model numbers, you might end up with a superior or an inferior panel and there's no way to know when you're buying the tv.

    Dutch link that you can run through Google Translate.

    i wonder what the noise level of this engine will be like

    as a bit of tangent , i like the jt8d engine sound and the thrust reverser of 737 200, the sexy sound of jt-3d engine on 707, the 'whale sound' of pw1000g engine and the distinctive roar sound of iae v2500 & CFM56 at take off.

    these days the in flight entertainment screens are thin and flat. If my memory serves, the old ife screen was a thick crt screen hung overhead along the plane hallway. Kinda annoying!
