    Yeah you can. Training, process, documentation, hiring standards.

    it probably wouldn't cost a lot to implement some strong process controls. once in place, it wouldn't cost much/anything

    Sure they do. Everyone does. The only thing lacking is motivation to improve.

    Harvey Norman suffer the same problem most Aussie businesses do - they're overrun with bean counters who only see the bottom line on the books, and can't see intangible things like how the quality of your people improves your profits long term. Until their management are motivated to stop listening to bean counters and instead follow more enlightened ways, then they can never get out of their slump.

    "Good companies" are nothing more than collections of good people. And the same is true in reverse for "bad companies".

    arrr yes, that's what the ACCC fines are supposed to provide.

    but look at MSY, it took over 1 million bucks to get the message through.
    i cant see HN or the others would change the dodgy practices by having to honor a couple of 'incorrectly priced' items.
    it's chump change until the big stick comes out

    Human error is just a fact of life, all you can do is attempt to minimise it with various means. When you start hanging people's pay on it then you can see some remarkable changes.

    I agree... but I'm pretty sure it's illegal to dock someone's pay for an error.

    I think a warning letter needs to be issued... after 3 the employee can have employment terminated.

    No, you need a new TV.....now. Buy one. It's only money. Don't take it to the grave. Live for now.

    On the Harvey Norman saga....just read this over at OzB...

    Looks like quite bad luck to those that just simply got a refund.

    Looks like CalMan brought out a home version of their software, and it supports AutoCal on the LG C8 models.

    I'm still hoping manufacturers will build this sort of feature in directly soon, and bypass the need for third party software all together.

    [edit]

    Kind of a boring video, but you can see how accurate this thing gets. Takes me an hour or more to get to the same ballpark accuracy as this thing can get to in 20 minutes.

    Anyone know of a decent but inexpensive colourimeter? I just had a look at the SpectraCal C6 from that video and it's USD$795 :lol:

    IMO the biggest thing holding back OLED is the price. If they sold the 65" and $2k all the time, they would have people busting down doors to buy it and they would sell a lot more units. Instead people wait, then go buy something cheaper. Then don't look at buying a new TV for 5-10 years.

    Again.. Who is going to buy a $3+k OLED when they were $2k the other day.

    While it does happen, I would say thats a pretty rare reason for someone to buy a new TV. I assume most just want a newer better TV.

    it's presumptuous to say "most".
