Sign of Me Getting Old

I saw an advertisement email from FORD.

"Arriving fall 2019 to join its GT350 stablemate, Shelby GT500 is designed to be the ultimate driver’s car, ready to attack on all fronts – on the drag strip*, producing more than 700 horsepower** via its first-in-class dual-clutch transmission with launch control, and on the track, with its race-bred chassis, Ford Performance-spec Michelin Pilot tires, massive Brembo brakes and performance aerodynamics, and on the street…"

I am sure I used to be very excited to watch and hear about the car like this. I do still think it looks cool but I am now more interested in quiet comfort and safe ride with as close to autonomous driving capability as possible.

I am very happy with my Subaru Outback. I have avoided at least three accidents because the car stopped by itself. Also I love the fact my car seems to invisible to place. This morning I was doing 10 miles over the limit to move to left lane to let the speeding car pass me. Well, the speeding car was Bellevue Police Car.

My Apple Watch is just a Watch Now

If you consider my Apple Watch works only as a watch, I am sure Cheap TIMEX would work just as well.
I reported that my Apple Watch developed problem over the weekend. The watch does not sense my touch in the middle of the screen. I was able to reset the Apple Watch and changed my pass code not to include 2-5-8-0 numbers. Those numbers are located where it lost sense.

However my Apple Watch is now just a watch. I think I have to retire it. The question is, should I buy another one or not.

Apple Watch Generation 2

My Apple Waych Gen 2 started to have problem. It does not sense any touch in the middle of the screen where key code shows 2-5-8-0. My unlock codes uses those numbers and was not able to unlock. I try to reset several times but I think it is a hardware issue. I check my Apple Care but it was expired. I guess I had it more tha 3 years.

I have manage to rest the watch and reset the code not to use 2-5-8-0 ... So I was able to unlock the watch but non of the application can work properly since it can not sense the touch in the middle of the screen. I think I will retire this watch and put it on the display at PSPinc.

Two Things That Attracts Me about 2020 Subaru

2020 Subaru Legacy
(1) Instead of lake keeping, 2020 Subaru has lane centering.
(2) Instead of 3.6L Boxter Engine, Subaru offers 2.5L Turbo.

Wish list.

(1) Plug-in Hybrid
(2) Outback instead of Legacy

I have been driving 2017 Subaru Outback 3.6R Touring. I will be looking at another Subaru in 2020.

I learned something today.

I always though about this but I really could not say it better than this.

It’s almost impossible to change someone’s mind using facts. This happens due to ‘motivated reasoning,’ a psychology term that refers to the way people usually believe whatever they want to believe and use the flimsiest piece of evidence to justify that belief, even when there is plenty of verified evidence to disprove it.

Fry's Electronic in Renton

I cannot remember when I was at Fry's last time.
I used to go to Fry's in San Jose long time ago.
I used to love the store.

I saw an online advertisement and found that they have $2.00 sandwich.
I think that was a good enough reason to go there.

I ended up buying nice headset.
Store looks very empty and not well stocked.
I hope they are doing okay.

What you are looking at are the web pages from Pspinc.com back in 1996/1997.

We have build the website from the HTML 1.0 to current.
We have upgraded our system every year since we have started.

My Newsletter 2/7/19

Compliment

Nobody doesn't want to be complimented. “Good Job”, “Nice Work”, “Great Idea” even just a “Thank you” would make their day. But in addition to those regular compliments, people enjoy being called “Crazy”, “Weird”, “Miss Fits”, “Different” and other usually uncomplimentary words. That is because everyone, somewhere deep down, wants to stand out from the rest.

It's funny most people want to get along with others but at the same time, people want to be different from others. Old Apple commercial emphasized that people who use Apple is different from others. That was brilliant. I wanted to be different and I started to use Apple. Now I am not sure Apple represents what I am anymore. But that is another story.

To accomplish higher customer satisfaction, many companies try to create a "cut cake" (by the book) approach to customer service. Treating every customer like a king. But the service level usually goes down the drain. Nobody is treated like somebody anymore. I understand this for large companies. They can not really keep track of each customer. But for small companies, that is where you shine.

If you know the history of your companies relationship with the clients, you can treat each customer like they are someone important. When I had cable (I do not have cable TV anymore), when I called for support, after a long wait, the first thing the support person asked me was “is your cable box turned on?”

If your company can provide better individual support, customers will like you more. But some small companies think they can charge more for better service. I say that is wrong. You provide better service to retain your customer, not make more money. If you charge your customer more, they will go find another company.

Treating your customer better at the same price is the key to small business success.

If you think you are beaten, you are.

“If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don't,
If you like to win, but you think you can't
It is almost certain you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!”

***


I hear this way too often. Don't go war if you know you cannot win. You go with the fight where you will win. If you win enough fight, you may already have won the war. So, stop telling me, our company is too small, too unknown. I retire and start new small company when I get there.

Happy Lunar New Year

NORDSTROM and NORDSTROM.COM

I am always impressed with NORDSTROM when it comes to integrating the Brock and Motor Stores and Online Stores. I happen walk through the store and found huge section of store is dedicated to the pick-up and return.

When the product is shipped t the store, there is no shipping charge ... It also bring people into their stores.

Can We Build The Future Together?

Can we get together to raise money for the scholarship to 5 students at University of Washington, Foster School of Business to make sure we have a quality business people. Non of the money we raised is going to pay for the salaries of people working for PSPinc. In fact most of the money used to put on this tournament is donated by PSPinc.

Besides, this tournament has many reasons why people want to attend

(1) It is held at Aldarra Golf Course
(2) You can play in the scramble or individual
(3) Great lunch and dinner with drinks
(4) Meet other business people from all over the State.
(5) ... Silent Auction ... (New This Year!!!)

We have a date picked for our 2019 Golf Tournament, August 19th, 2019.

Ken Uchikura Newsletter Vol. 9

Bug, Money, and Dream
Dear Reader,

I always tell my R&D team to take care of business by focusing on fixing bugs, money, and dream in that order. I will explain what they mean.

The highest priority in developing and maintaining computer software and systems are to fix bugs when we find them. There are different levels of bugs we find. Of course, the highest priority is something that can bring down a system. Those bugs are call critical bugs. There are other less critical bugs. For instance, when buttons do not align, typos, and other bugs which have ways to work around. Never the less, we put a high priority on bug fixing.

The second priority is to bring revenue to the company. I hope I don’t have to explain why bringing revenue is important. Without revenue, the company will not function. So we put a high priority on the projects that bring revenue.

The third priority is what we call Dream. This is where we design and develop something new. We are always developing something new. We are currently developing a “Feedback System”, “Help Desk System” and “MP3 Audio Embed System” and “CRM + Collaboration + Task Tracking System” Called Pilot SBT (Small Business Tools). Those products are developed for our internal use and being refined as we spend more time. We are making them available to you as well in very limited bases.

We are not a reseller of products developed by others. We are the original manufacturer. That means we can modify, delete, and add any feature you want. We are always looking for business partners to push our products. If you have a product idea, please let us know. We will be happy to work with you develop and expand our dream.
