Is anyone else just as frustrated with Apple as I am right now? I bought an MBP. I got a DOA refurb. I got a new machine and installed Leopard (big mistake) and since then I've had more hang ups, crashes, and other problems large and small in a month than I did with my ibook and iMac in five years of rugged daily use. Here's Apple's manifesto from its website: But despite this high-toned rhetoric and the Windows-bashing commercials, this is just a Big Fat Lie. My sink and my toaster don't crash (well, my toaster caught on fire once, but I digress) My brand-spanking-new MacBook Pro does. A couple of times every day. In 30 days, I have spent a decade's worth of "taking out the garbage" time trying to get this machine to work. All the time? Yeah, right. How about some new slogans. Leopard is the New Vista My Tiger Can Eat Your Leopard Hi. I'm a Mac. I wear better clothes than John Hodgman (who by the way is waaaay smarter and funnier than I am. You didn't see "Waiting," did you? Apple's ad agency obviously didn't) but I guess by now you know that I'm just as likely to crash and drive you crazy as he is, but at twice the price. But hey, I look so much cooler on the front seat of the car while you drive to the Apple Store. It Just Works. Not.
