Ellen Pao Resigns as Reddit Interim CEO After User Revolt submitted by askl56 to technology

gagnorblu 0 points 21 points (+21|-0) ago

I'm still using my porn alt on Reddit. As for the subreddits, I'm on the ropes. I'm a lurker first, commenter second. I never actively participated in any individual community, but I was still interested in their content. Once Voat hits critical mass, I'll be lurking here full time.

Amazon Prime Day is on and customers are bummed out by the virtual garage sale submitted by Messiadbunny to news

gagnorblu 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago

None of the PC parts that I'm interested in are on sale. Combine that with the fact that most of the suppliers are pulling the same move that Rockstar did with their GTA V Steam Sale (Increase the price, then discount it to make it look cheaper than it really is), and I've not done any shopping on there today. I already know the prices of the products I'm interested in, so I can tell when I'm being bullshat.

What fictional universe would make an amazing cinematic universe? submitted by Dumbtickles to AskVoat

His entire Cosmere series could be done for film or television. Mistborn as a movie trilogy, Elantris as an HBO or Netflix original series, and Stormlight Archive as an animated series (the CGI cost of spren and Roshari wildlife would make a live-action version too expensive). I suppose Warbreaker could work as an animated miniseries on a YA network.

Fallout 4 is about "freedom", not being the "best looking game," says Bethesda submitted by IndieRock to gaming

Oh, yeah. I'm trying to build my own desktop PC so I can start modding Bethesda games. That, and I'm getting sick of waiting forever on Xbox.

McDonald's is losing fierce fast-food fight submitted by blackhawks-fan to news

gagnorblu 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Well, the main problem McDonald's has is the price.

Ever since McDonald's raised their prices, people have been switching to alternative fast food places. For example, the town center closest to me has a Chik-Fil-A, a Starbucks (literally one store away from each other, by the way), a Chipotle, a Taco Bell, A Dunkin' Donuts, and several local restaurants, in addition to the aforesaid McDonald's.

Now let's break that down restaurant by restaurant.

Chik-Fil-A's chicken sandwich meals cost around 5-7 dollars for a quality chicken sandwich product. They are a good choice price-wise, and a good choice quality-wise, and is consistent with each franchise. The downside is that they're closed on sundays, and only serve chicken-based entrees.

Starbucks costs anywhere from 5-10 dollars or more, depending on what you're getting. If you're getting a coffee and a breakfast sandwich, you'll probably be paying 6-12 dollars depending on your order. For lunch, you'll be paying 8 dollars or higher (again, for a beverage and a sandwich or other lunch item). They are very good quality-wise, but as pricy as a Wendy's meal if you're hungry. Corporate locations will be the consistent ones, the franchised locations are usually inside a grocery store and have different ways of making the drinks.

Chipotle is the most popular fast-food location in the center. $7 nets you a drink and a very high quality burrito. Go here, Go here, Go here.

Taco Bell will, for around 7 dollars, give you some very delicious future diarrhea. Really good entering the mouth, but utter hell leaving the colon.

Dunkin Donuts is like a watered-down version of Starbucks, but it's also cheaper and sweeter, which is nice when you don't want to pay out the ass for some coffee and a muffin.

Now, McDonalds is known for one thing: Low quality, cheap food. The instant they lose the 'cheap' part, they lose their customers. They're competing with Starbucks, Taco Bell, and Dunkin Donuts for breakfast, and only keep their customers because of the price. Taco Bell? Better breakfast. Starbucks? Better breakfast.

Lunch and Dinner? If you want a meal, pretty much every other fast-food place will have a much higher-quality menu, for around the same price they have for a Big Mac meal.

If I have $4, I'll get a cheap Dollar Menu Meal. If I have $5-8, I'll probably go to Chipotle. $10? Usually Wendy's. Anything higher, and I'll eat at a restaurant. The fast food industry is where the phrase 'vote with your wallet' actually means something, and when your product is already inferior, your customer base will abandon you when your prices go up.
