    Funny, I was just watching bloomberg the other day on TV, and indeed it said Americans prefer McDonald’s coffee over Starbucks. Then it went on to say McD stocks outperform Starbucks.

    They had also interviewed Starbucks CEO and he said they are trying to expand their food selections to compete with other markets.

    Starbucks seems to be losing money.

    Do you feel that Consumer Reports may have shot itself in the foot with the child car seat fiasco? I know I have been second guessing them a bit.

  3. Trent says:

    The child car seat situation is mostly related to the fact that their data was more stringent than they were claiming. Their top car seats in that survey are in fact the best available; the problem is that their methodology made good car seats seem not as good. I don’t view that as being as huge a crisis as many believe it to be.

  4. I’d buy Micky D’s coffee over starbucks anytime…

    I couldn’t agree more about airline security. This Christmas I flew home to Philly from San Diego and while my carry-on was going through security, TSA said there a reason to seach my bag. The culprit? A one liter bottle of Evian that I fogot to remove. The REAL item that should have been removed but they failed to even find it? A Buck Knife my Mom wanted me to take back to give my boyfriend for Christmas. I had it tucked into the front pocket of a pair of jeans. Yeah, something is SERIOUSLY wrong with their system…..

    I always goggle over that “4 out of 10 people” rebate statistic, but then I realized there’s all kinds of little rebates nobody cares about… I may be eligible for a rebate when I buy two tubes of toothpaste but I really won’t miss that 10 cents. Are “lame rebates” included in that statistic?
