It's a Bird! It's a Plane!!


You have to trust someone whose job title is "Genius." I spent over three hours today at the Apple store while a kind and patient (did I mention brilliant?) young man named Rob tried about a half million maneuvers on my computer until he restored it to perfect, even frisky, health. The laying on of hands was never more skillfully performed, and I know they don't pay Rob enough for his good work and good will. No matter what he's paid.

I am grateful.

Apple rules.

Apples DO rock. And I wish I still had one. ~sighs~ Can I have yours now that it's fixed? No? Damn.

I lOVE my Mac mini. It's my lifeline. The problem was a corrupt file, so the little guy had his first colonic.

When the Genius (!!) was done, he said, "Here's your baby," as he handed it back to me. I guess he sensed that it wasn't just a piece of machinery -- I never could fake it very well.

Wow...and you could've had a Dell.

They're great, too, but I've never had anything but Macs.

I hope they don't come up with some lame fruit pants-type commercials or life as I know it will be over.

Apple is awesome. I had to send my Powerbook out for service when I was visiting New York and it made it home to San Francisco before I did two days later.

I guess it was divested of its toothpaste and foundation before being allowed to board the plane. Everybody knows terrorists don't kill people; computers kill people.
