    Is this how Apple normally operate?
    I wrote an e-mail to an Apple Centre in UK in the very early hours of this morning. An e-mail simply asking for advice on the shapes of 2 different, older eMacs. Nowhere in the e-mail did I suggest that I may be in the market for a brand new laptop, iPod, Phone or any one of a dozen Apple products.
    Just now as I opened my e-mail in-box I saw 4 e-mails from APPLE. None of them answered my question but all of which virtually demanded that I buy the latest Apple product.
    Is this level of SPAM normal with Apple and just something I will have to learn to live with?
    If it is normal, it's also disgusting.
    Cheers, m'dears,
    Steve

    Hi there,
    I have no way of telling which Apple store or site responded.
    The e-mail I sent out was to contactus@euro.apple.com and looked like a "One mail fits all" kind of address for all sorts of UK support.

    Ok… I just thought it might have been a reseller type thing.

    Pretty bad of Apple to spam you like that. :eek:
    But then again Apple, Inc. doesn't surprise me much these days. :D

    Although to be fair I only get the usual Apple emails to my registered @mac.com address… all of them breathless to tell me how and why I need the latest and greatest.
