    Spoke to the recruiter and he said they don't have a website. Come on, it is 2017, and it is an interview for an MSP.
    He hold me to just go talk to him. Yeah, but I will be wasting their time and mine, and my gas money. This is all too strange.

    An MSP without a website? Um, no.

    Yeah, and they are a small shop with about 10 employees, and only a few customers. It is 2017, you need a website for marketing and to get more business.

    And just for people to verify who you are.

    This is the reason I do not give out my social for the first stage of interviews, or DOB, or my real address. I will give that info to HR once I have an offer letter.
    Oh, and there is a Joe in the mix too, but who is Joe? You didn't give me his info.

    Sounds like they are in the identity theft business not IT support

    That's very much what Robert Half is.

    Hmm, can't seem to attach a file, only images. Let me see if I can find a link to it. I'll edit this when I do.

    There is no file attach option. That's disabled.

    SSN & DOB before the first interview? Major red flags. I would run the opposite direction as fast as I could.

    Business as normal for Robert Half.

    You are talking to RH?

  • RE: Remix OS Singularity

    @JaredBusch said in Remix OS Singularity:

    To @scottalanmiller's point of laptops being more usable. They are only in so much that they have the keyboard and screen included. but you pay the price of carrying around that weight. So more usable is a relative term based on perception and use case. With a device and a KVM at home you only have to carry the device and adapter back and forth, instead of the entire laptop.

    I totally get that, but once you are "two points" rather than "generally mobile" it seems like two desktops is cheaper than one phone. A desktop is cheaper to acquire and lasts much longer. I'm not saying that there is no exception, but the idea of it being a tiny desktop that you carry from work to home but can't use anywhere else means it isn't competing with existing mobile solutions, but only existing stationary ones.

    If a phone is $700 and good for two to three years, and a desktop is $600 but good for five and I need two desktops, that's $1200 over five years instead of $1,750 and I get two devices instead of one. Now there is a good point about maybe the company is buying phones anyway, and then that changes a lot of things. But for just the desktop piece, I don't think that it competes well at all. If we are looking at "enhancing the phone" there is some argument. If we are looking at "replacing a desktop" I think it looks poor. If we are looking at "replacing a laptop" I think it's no contest.

    Not going to go back an quote things.

    The point that the company has to provide two of everything is flawed. If they provide the phone and adapter they can leave the home side on the user. Obviously if they require working from home, they are likely more obligated to provide the environment. Most home based sales people I know have a KVM setup for their laptop at home that they supplied because they like it better than their company laptop alone.

    The company can easily handle providing the KVM at the office because they would have it anyway for a desktop.

    To another point, of course it is not supposed to be a laptop replacement. It is supposed to be a replacement for a docked laptop (docked being loosed used in this case to refer to one sitting on a desk for long periods or actually docked).

    To @Dashrender's point of the documents being with them, well duh, that has nothing to do with the actual hardware and is a solution that would have to be decided with a desktop or laptop at home anyway.

    To @scottalanmiller's point of laptops being more usable. They are only in so much that they have the keyboard and screen included. but you pay the price of carrying around that weight. So more usable is a relative term based on perception and use case. With a device and a KVM at home you only have to carry the device and adapter back and forth, instead of the entire laptop.

    @DustinB3403 said something about double everything. Well as I think you see, double is the user's choice. Full system at work, work from device on the road and at home unless they choose to enhance the home experience.

    tl;dr: I think this is honestly a solid solution once the mobile OS get fully up to speed. People will adapt.
