6 Funniest Customer Calls Ever

I was re-introduced to my favorite call center conversation a day or two ago and thought I’d compile half a dozen of my favorite customer support/complaint/sales calls in one place. Most of these videos are not suitable for work or to be watched around kids without ear muffs.

Dell’s ‘Solar’ Parking Lot recharges plug-in cars

These ‘trees’ not only shade cars from the sun, but also collect and can power electrical outlets in the column, so you can plug in your electric car during the day.

Dell SX2210T Multi-Touch LCD Monitor with Webcam

A standalone touch screen monitor has been on every geek’s wish list, but how about a multi-touch monitor?! The Dell SX2210T is sexy, multi-touch and affordable. This is a 1920 x 1080 21.5-inch panel, with HDMI and DVI inputs along with an integrated two megapixel (2Mp) webcam and microphone. It has a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 2ms response time.

The Dell SX2210T has touch and multitouch features like panning, zooming, flicking, scrolling, etc. which come to life on a Windows 7 system. You can use either your finger(s) or a stylus to operate the touch screen features. Many of the touch features are customizable and many of those options can be accessed from the monitor’s control panel.

Unfortunatlely, not all of the touch screen options work with all versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7, so pay attention to those details in the product specs before you shell out for what otherwise looks like a beautiful monitor.
