Hey guys. Most of you know I've been sour about my iMac lately about the new updates coming soon, and now today that the updates came, I was a tad sad but I had learnt to appreciate my iMac anyway so I didn't care about the updates. Anyways, London Drugs (where I bought my iMac) called me and asked "Hello Sir, we understand you have recently purchased an iMac?" I respond "Yes" and he offers to send me an updated version plus give me some cash back! I was so happy!

So yeah, now in a week (whenever LD gets the new shipment) or so I will get my updated Mac free of charge!

Wow what a wonderful company to think about their customers....I need a store like that in my city.

"Excuse me sir, we heard you dropped your candybar.....we'll ship one right out to you"

cynical dude here

ah haaa - i see yours was on order!

hmmm - If it was on order I bet they didna have the one you requested in the 1st place! I bet they were sent the new one.

I bet they were faking the 'We're soooo nice' line.

How cynical is that?

Anyways yeah I wonder if they called everybody that bought an iMac at London Drugs in Winnipeg Canada? Hmm wahtever but yeah, that is what I call service ;).
