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!

    The Basics

    • I'm a father of three boys, husband of one wife, and author of eight books, and co-founder of three web sites. We spend most of the year in Marin County, California though I'm on the road a lot giving talks. (You can see the full story here.) Personal correspondence should go to sbeej68 at gmail dot com. If you're interested in having me speak at an event, drop a line to Wesley Neff at the Leigh Bureau (WesN at Leighbureau dot com.)

    My Books

    • : 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. Sold more copies in hardcover than anything else I've written.

    • : 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.

    • : The Ghost Map

      The Ghost Map
      The latest: 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.

    • : 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.

    • : 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.

    • : 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. Probably the most critically well-received all my books, and the one that has influenced the most eclectic mix of fields: political campaigns, web business models, urban planning, the war on terror.

    • : 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. Still in print almost a decade later, and still relevant, I think. But I haven't read it in a while, so who knows what's in there!
