I just spoke to a friend that received his new 13" MBP BTO with 4GB RAM from Apple's shipping facility in the Netherlands. And guess what was also BTO? He found several porn videos in his Documents-folder. He doesn't want to fuss about it so he'll just delete and forget it, but, wow Apple, great technicians you got there! :rolleyes:

Perhaps your friend is "pulling your leg" so to speak
No, he's pretty open about it so he wouldn't have a problem admitting it was his.

The new MacBook Pro, now with iPorn.. Yeah, sound like something Apple would do.. :D

MrBrekke: he has enough already. Hehe...

did it greet him with an introduction video with a whole bunch of languages saying welcome when he turned it on?

Don't know, I didn't ask. But anyway, as far as I know it isn't hard to make that video display after a reboot.

thegoldenmackid: why would he/I lie? I'm the one who made him switch, so I wouldn't gain anything from it, and I'm not here to bash Apple. And he didn't make any fuss about it, he just thought it was strange and unprofessional. Think about it, why shouldn't you believe?

Personally, I would've called Apple and said something. Say that MacBook was for a child and he/she opened it by chance. I think it's highly inappropriate if it did happen.

I know, I would've called them too, but he think's he won't gain anything for the hassle, and he's right. What could they do? Say that they're sorry? :p

But it's strange that something like that can happen...

Apple's shipping facility in the Netherlands? I hate to break it to you, but Apple ships all European deliveries from Cork in Ireland.

Anyway. Please post the address of that place in the Netherlands, if they give away free porn, I think I will order my next Mac from there. :)

No they don't, shipping to Scandinavia is from the Netherlands. I've had an iBook G4, MB, MBP and every other order from the Apple Store shipped from the Netherlands, Eindhoven I think. So obviously if you want a different first boot video, order from the Apple Store for Norway, Denmark or Sweden. :p

Did you see it yourself?
I was helping him out with some of his external HDs over desktop sharing in Skype, and I saw them in his trash. I asked what it was and he said he found them in the Docs-folder and that he had deleted them.

I also don't believe this, sorry.
Why would someone at the factory do this.
If it was done to be a joke I'm sure they would have been more creative. Like have it displayed in place of the start up video.
I also don't think the employes have the free time to surf the web for porn.

Well, can't you see the file properties to determine when it was created?

If you saw it in the trash, he prolly loaded it and deleted it himself. I doubt they installed porn on his drive. Sounds like your friend told you a white lie; too embarrassed to admit it.

Most people would be looking for a serious $$$$ settlement from Apple.

We emptied the trash..

Maybe, but I doubt it. He's pretty open when it comes to those things.

Maybe in the US, in Scandinavia you couldn't get a cent. Maybe a concerned AppleCare employee at the other end of the line, who would say something like "oh, sorry, our techs would never do such a thing..." :p

i call bs
Are you saying that I'm a liar or that my friend is? :rolleyes: Anyway, I don't really care. I just posted this because it was strange that a tech at Apple would do something like this.
