Topic: Fixwhatsbroken's Mission
Welcome to Fixwhatsbroken!
Reviews of things, products and service that don't work!
What do you do when the costs of repair are even higher than the products themselves? You dump those products and buy a new one. How come companies don't want to fix their own broken products? Have you ever had to deal with a company over its broken, defaultive and/or just bad product design? Have you ever had to make expensive repairs in a brand car or other tool? What has been your experience with companies? Have you ever had to deal with a company's poor customer service? Have you ever had to deal with a home builder/developer's indifference or lack of care after you bought a home? How about a real estate agent who did a shoddy job? If you know a few of them you are pleased with, go ahead and put the word out. We, consumers, need to sift the good from the bad!
In order to make informed decision, we need to have information about their business practices. Any complaints you may have about web service, online shopping and shipping with the big names such as Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, eBay, eBay shops etc can be featured in an article here. Fixwhatsbroken is about the consumers' experience, your own experience. Nobody can deny it to you. How about the big click and mortar shops such as Costco, Best Buy, Circuit City, Wall-Mart, Target, Sephora, Gottschalks or G, City hall, Dell, HP, etc? Share your shopping experience at these stores too!
Here is your chance to dish out and vent your anger or just air things out. If you have dealt with broken digital cameras, cars, iPods, PDAs, computers, laptops, you will want to read about and share your personal stories. If you have called city officials about some service only to find the voicemail, then you have something to share here. If there is a recall on a piece of equipment you have been using, a car's exhaust pipe, your pet's food or anything, then you will be glad to have come to this place.
Our hope is that companies are going to pay attention to what you want and try to accommodate you. How else will they know whether they are doing a good or poor job if you keep your mouth shut? Company owners and shareholders are in business to make money. If something is not going well in their firm, they want to correct it. So it is in their interest to listen to the consumer's experience. This is what Fixwhatsbroken is all about.
For sure, you are going to have a lot to say about the state of the healthcare system in this country. You will want to give your two cents about Medi-Cal Part D mess, exorbitant prices of medications and treatment within our modern medicine, price tag of education or getting a college degree etc.
