Claudio

Was the cab fee paid by Apple ?

Scott Johnson

If I had found myself in the same predicament, I'd have to either ship the box off to Apple or take a 200 mile "cab ride" to the nearest Apple Store. It sounds like they need some quality control help over at Apple.

Eugene Wei

I have the same exact problem with my G5 optical disc drive! Thanks for the tip, I'll have to bring it to my nearest Apple store.

Still, you'd think they'd catch such a basic glitch with some basic quality control.

Nicholas Barnard

Hmmm, blogging is taking more horsepower nowadays..

Eirik

I have to agree with the first two comments: at the very least Apple should have paid all your expenses. You were lucky to be living so close to a an Apple store. I almost switched to Apple last year, BTW. The machine was beautiful, the *nix interface even more gorgeous, the price was right for once. And then I was told by the salesperson that should any problem occur, the machine would have to be shipped off to the Netherlands. I live in Oslo, Norway (where there are PC repairshops all over the place) and the idea of sending the machine with which I earn a living abroad for a couple of weeks just didn't appeal to me.

Kjell

Re Eirik's comment: the 'shipping-unwell-Mac-abroad-to-repair-it'-scheme would at least be slightly feasible if it included a free exchange Mac for the duration (with your own hard disk contents on it, of course). Did the salesperson in any way inform you of such a deal?

(I have to say I was flabbergasted by the thought that Apple actually doesn't have any Mac repair facilities at all in Norway -- I mean, we do have _some_ advertising agency offices and newspapers and other media companies here, don't we?)

Halifax Pub

I am new to the internet and I am surfing here and this is very interesting reading. I did a search in the search engines on "pub bar entertainment blog" and I found your web blog and it isnot the bar I was looking for.
I was researching blogs as I was interested in a blog for myself, that is if I can understand how to operate a blog. The different things discussed on this website found by searching for "pub bar entertainment blog" is very amusing and from seeing and understanding more of how a blog operates, it may be more than this Halifax pub guy to handle.

thanks for the insight
see you at the pub ( some call it bar! )

I was impressed!

My Books

  • Steven Johnson: How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World

    Steven Johnson: How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World
    A history of innovation accompanied by a 6-part TV series on PBS and the BBC, this was the first of my books to crack the top 5 on the NY Times bestseller list. Appropriately for a book that celebrates diverse networks, this was the most collaborative of any of my books. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • Steven Johnson: Future Perfect: The Case For Progress In A Networked Age

    Steven Johnson: Future Perfect: The Case For Progress In A Networked Age
    My first book-length attempt to organize my writings about emergence and networks into something resembling a political philosophy, which I called Peer Progressivism. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation

    Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation
    An exploration of environments that lead to breakthrough innovation, in science, technology, business, and the arts. I conceived it as the closing book in a trilogy on innovative thinking, after Ghost Map and Invention. But in a way, it completes an investigation that runs through all the books, and laid the groundwork for How We Got To Now. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : The Invention of Air

    The Invention of Air
    The story of the British radical chemist Joseph Priestley, who ended up having a Zelig-like role in the American Revolution. My version of a founding fathers book, and a reminder that most of the Enlightenment was driven by open source ideals. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : The Ghost Map

    The Ghost Map
    The story of a terrifying outbreak of cholera in 1854 London 1854 that ended up changing the world. An idea book wrapped around a page-turner. I like to think of it as a sequel to Emergence if Emergence had been a disease thriller. You can see a trailer for the book here. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter

    Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter
    The title says it all. This one sparked a slightly insane international conversation about the state of pop culture -- and particularly games. There were more than a few dissenters, but the response was more positive than I had expected. And it got me on The Daily Show, which made it all worthwhile. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life

    Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life
    My first best-seller, and the only book I've written in which I appear as a recurring character, subjecting myself to a battery of humiliating brain scans. The last chapter on Freud and the neuroscientific model of the mind is one of my personal favorites. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software

    Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software
    The story of bottom-up intelligence, from slime mold to Slashdot. Most of my books sold more copies than this one, but Emergence has influenced the most eclectic mix of fields: political campaigns, web business models, urban planning, the war on terror. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate

    Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate
    My first. The book I wrote instead of finishing my dissertation, predicting the growing cultural significance of interface and information design. Still relevant, I think. But I haven't read it in a while, so who knows what's in there! (Available from IndieBound here.)
