to be clear, i am referring to building a team of contractors “trained” by the employees you just made redundant. I don’t care where the replacements come from or what their visa status is. adding a layer of bureaucracy between engineers and end users never ends well.
So you can use your smart phone MDE app or your ticket/card for entry and G+? That is good to know, because we’ll need to scan for DS5 and I didn’t want to buy him a magic band and have his little brother upset that he doesn’t get one too. Our phones would be much easier than having the card handy all the time.
This is my suspicion. It it quite possible the chip they are using is in short supply. In my work, we have had to find replacement chips for certain components, which has led to some massive software development efforts to keep our production lines from shutting down. This is a much larger deal than many people realize. It is why, for example, the car my son ordered for his wife took about six months to get.
MB+ is not a difficult engineering effort by any means…but the chip shortages are growing worse, not better, still.
Off topic, but that has never stopped me before…has ordering cars and waiting for them become a much more popular thing recently due to limited options at dealerships (due to less production due to parts scarcity etc.) or is this something that’s always been a preferred purchase method? Is this for pickier people or have people had to do it this way? I’ve seen quite a few here mentioning ordering a car, and I’ve never done it.
I search online for the best possible deal of cars physically on a lot I’m willing to drive to that has most of what I’m looking for and settle for one that checks the most boxes and drive it immediately. Will usually try to negotiate price down further if possible too. Is this an outdated way of doing things now?
I think I’ve seen some comments about accessing ride photos, but I haven’t paid much attention because ride photos aren’t a big deal to us.
There are also several comments in chat and in forum that people are still using MB because magic mobile usage slows down the LL entry when someone has multiple people they are checking in through one MDE account. Again, I haven’t paid much attention because each person in our party has a phone and individual MDE account. You may want to research a bit for what to expect since I doubt your DS5 and younger have their own phones and accounts.
I all my many years, I know 2 people that ordered cars. One was very picky about color, trim and features he wanted. The other ordered a BMW from the German factory.
In the past month, I have heard of 2 people that have ordered trucks. Then I heard that they (whoever they are) get a certain number of orders for a specific color before producing. Heard it from a person, not the internet, so it must be true.
