    How, pray tell are they supposed to know your ports would go bad after time? Divine Intervention?

    All the tests are supposed to do is test that they function before the Mac goes out the door. The tests have no way to test for future failure.

    That's like Ford having a way to test that their cruise control modules don't go up in flames and take the car with it. They don't! Which is why they are recalling like 600,000 cars and trucks.

    Having Same Problem - USB Ports not working

    Since I got my new iMac (less than 1 month ago)...

    2 iPods stopped working entirely
    3 powered USB hubs not recognized
    3 card readers - not recognized
    Oh - and now the keyboard and mouse not recognized - making my brand new shiny iMac one beautiful paperweight...

    Apple Care - Hardly! Keep getting disconnected, incredibly long waits...

    I am going to have to take a day of work to hopefully reach a live person...who will probably then blame something else...

    HELP!!!!!
