Sep 16th 2012 9:16PM I've worked at a hotel for 10+ years and yes concierge's can "get a cut", but the truth is they'll still tell you best place to go.
Why would they recommend a mediocre restaurant, if instead telling you about an amazing one would get them a bigger tip and then lead to more suggestions that would lead to even more tips?
It's all about trust, and trust equals money. It's in their best financial interest to get you to the best place in town.
Sep 21st 2010 2:27PM That story makes a really good point about the books. Those new Harry Potter or Dan Brown or whatever books were $20+ a pop when you get them new. You can download some books for free and those kindle books are getting cheaper every day.
Plus, have you seen how cheap Kindle's are getting now? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002Y27P3M?ie=UTF8&tag=erzmu-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B002Y27P3M
The new ones are down to to like $139.
I'm seriously tempted to just get one. I mean, I love real books, but the price... it's hard to justify buying them much longer.
Jan 31st 2010 3:35PM The Grammy's are all about respect. The people who vote on the grammy's are the fellow members of the music community. The people who respect their elders, their influences, and all other musical styles are the ones who are nominated and win year after year. If you bitch and moan, you'll get passed over. This is why artists like John Mayer and Alicia Keys win year after year. They respect their elders, are humble and don't talk trash about their fellow musicians.
