RHT Study Reveals Customers’ Silly Questions

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Corporate News, Misc. Tech,

Cup HolderRobert Half Technology, provider of IT pros, conducted a survey by phone with 1,400 CIOs to find their oddest requests. Executive director Katherine Spencer Lee claims, “These unusual requests highlight the need for technical support personnel to also demonstrate patience, empathy and a sense of humor.”

We guess so, after reading the list. Here are a few of the sample questions:

  • “Can you rearrange the keyboard alphabetically?”

  • “How do I read my e-mail?”

  • “My computer is telling me to press any key to continue. Where is the ‘any’ key?”

  • “Can you reset the Internet for me?”

  • “How can I block e-mail from my manager?”

  • “Can I open the bank safe using my computer?”

  • “How long does it take to bake a potato in a microwave?”

  • “I’d like to stop receiving e-mail on Fridays.”

  • “Where can I get software to track UFOs?”

  • “How do I get my computer’s coffee-cup holder to come out again?”

  • TBS Makes a Hit…or Mistake?

    Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Games, Reality, ABC, Cable, CBS, NBC, Editorial,


    Get Smart. Indiana Jones. Re-making old classics is the latest trend on movies…so why can’t the same technique be applied to TV? I’ll admit - I’m a huge fan. Any game, any time, I play along and I usually do quite well. True TV game-players know where the best action can be found: GSN. But in this age of old-is-new, where past ideas are suddenly no longer passé, the classics come alive. In this case, it’s Match Game.

    A show with a long history that just got a little bit longer. Match Game originally hit the air in 1962 on NBC, running for seven seasons before cancellation. This is not the most famous version of the show. Match Game didn’t hit its real stride until it found a home on CBS in 1973. The episodes have resulted in some of the most popular programming GSN has ever ran, and for good reason.

    I can summon this up for you in just two words: Richard Dawson.

    FOX Tests Contestants in ‘The Moment of Truth’

    FOX logoOver the years, FOX has really pushed the limits on what can be considered acceptable television viewing – especially when it comes to the network’s reality lineup. Shows like Temptation Island became titillating, guilty pleasures, while the Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire extravaganza inspired plenty of attention-grabbing headlines. FOX became famous for reality with , and has tried re-creating that success with several similar carnations of the hit series. But now, the network is doing something a little different with . Unlike the hit , this is not the sort of game show you’re going to want to watch with your kids.

    You’ve probably seen the trailers. A single contestant sits in a chair in the middle of a huge audience. The stage is in the round, so the pressure comes from all angles. The contestants are asked questions of a highly personal nature – do you really care about starving children in Africa, are you repulsed by obese people, have you ever cheated on your wife? Here’s the twist – the contestants are hooked up to a polygraph machine, also known as a lie detector test. One contestant will even have to face his own father, a man who was not a part of his life. It’s a little sadistic, highly compelling, and just the formula FOX needs to continue the network reputation as being cutting edge.

    Kurt Cobain Story Hits the Silver Screen

    Kurt CobainDavid Benioff (Troy screenwriter) has signed an agreement to write a movie about former Nirvana singer, Kurt Cobain. A Universal project, the movie will be based on the 2001 book Heavier Than Heaven, written by Charles Cross. Details are still up in the air on the film, which may or may not contain an on-screen appearance from Cobain’s widow, . She will, however, serve as an executive producer.

    After Cobain’s 1994 death, rumors and innuendo abounded regarding the mysterious circumstances of how he died.  Whenever a celebrity is involved, gossip circles will often repeat the same question: ‘Was it murder or suicide?’  From Marilyn to , no one wants to believe their favorite stars would take their own lives (or attempt to). It’s unknown at this point which side of the story the movie will tell.  In any event, it’s a death that will continue to remain question-rich and somewhat unsolved in the minds of fans…like many other Hollywood deaths before and since.
