    when we get told we can't take personal phone calls (which is fair) and then the person telling us that picks his phone up and starts texting a way!

    DVD cases! They sucked at first because there was a big wall around the DVD so it was a hassle to get out. Then some genius started putting dents in the wall so your fingers could easily take the DVD out of the case. Life worth living! But nooo, that's way too convenient, and somebody else decided "Hey, that's ridiculously awesome, I'm going to put some more walls there so it will still look like a fantastically easy way to achieve DVD-out-of-case-ness, but then the user will discover that the dents are now completely useless!"

    Boring people. I have a problem when I am talking to people that have nothing interesting to say. I can't focus, and find myself getting angry/bored very quickly.

    Fair enough, everyone I know that doesn't like the secrecy or complains about quality control either doesn't have a mac at all, or has just got one, and is shocked that it's not exactly the same as windows...

    It's the same as it's always been... I think the PM G5 (with water cooling) was the worst apple product for QC, they have a guaranteed 100% failure rate after about 2 years...

    Something always slips through the gate, it's simple human error, nothing more, nothing less. You can't expect a company to have 100% QC, that's just asking for god like spotting skills, also joining forums gives you a hideously skewed perception on a product as you only read about the horror stories, never the happy people...

    i think the only reason that it seems that the quality control may be dropping is because every year the amount of mac users is growing substantially and the amount of errors are going to be greater when the sales and production are raised significantly

    ive hardly had any problems with my macs so im not worried much :)

    just going off my own experience really(so far about14 Macs bought-14DOA since2005), I realize you can't take what is said on fora at face value, that said, there does seem an awful lot more complaining of late ....anyways best not hijack the thread:) .
