Strange problem here. I've been a long-time Mac owner (first one in '98!) so I think I know a few things about them.. but I am stumped! In Sept, I purchased a new 27" iMac i7 from an authorized online dealer. I crossed my fingers when I unwrapped it and got a perfect machine. (no dents, yellowing, etc.) When I was setting it up, it tried to connect to the server "gibberish". (changing the name of course). Very strange, as I had never connected to any other server, and didn't know any by this name. I put this incident aside until I recently opened up iTunes. I haven't moved my music library over to the new machine yet, so it had been a few weeks since the server issue. Once launched, I noticed it was logged into the Apple iTunes store as "email@example.com". Strange! I could not log in without a password of course, but have no idea how that was logged in to begin with. My first thought (well, only one really) is that perhaps the vendor I purchased the iMac from sold me a refurbished or returned machine instead of the brand new one I thought I purchased. I did call this place and while they do sell refurbs, they assured me mine was brand new. (hmmm....) To make matters just a tad bit more weird... i recently received some email at my ".me" account (I never use my MobileMe account for email, just for syncing purposes), confirming an appointment with a CPA firm across the country (it's not like we're in the same city and cross paths). While the email address listed was mine, the greeting on the email was to "Mr & Mrs Gibberish" !!! (strangely, Mrs Gibberish and I spell our first name the same way, which is a unique way.) I've spoken with the CPA firm, who mentioned to their client about the email mixup - turns out her real email is 1 letter different than mine. An easy mistake... but coupled with the other issues listed above, I'm suspect about something. I've emailed the Gibberish's, but have not yet heard back... anyone have any thoughts?
