Well, this one isn’t too original, and when I state in my intro paragraph about my blog that some of my entries may be frightfully boring, here’s an example. Anyway, I’m finally switching from Windows to Mac computers. A few years ago I had a Windows PC crash with all my data on it. Apparently this is fairly common. When I went to find out how much it would cost to recover my data, the answer was $1200. And that’s with no guarantee that they’d get any of it back. Then I got a new computer from Worst Buy in Rockville, Maryland. It needed two hard drives replaced and the DVD drive replaced, it had problems four separate times, and I didn’t have it from August through the beginning of November except for the few times I had it back from the Geek Squad.
At least I had another Windows pc, a laptop. Of course, this one got so hot that I burned myself. Also, the left click button on the mouse sometimes clicks on whatever it’s on without me touching it. That’s right, if the cursor is over the “send” button on an email message for example, it might send it even if I don’t touch the mouse. And, the cursor jumps from one place to another so sometimes I can’t write more than two words without losing my spot. Sometimes it doesn’t shut down right either. Anyway, I haven’t had a chance to take the laptop in for repair. Because I need a computer! Usually a car repair can be done in a day but a computer takes a month???
Back to the desktop PC – the customer service representatives acted as if the computer being in the shop for the better part of three months was no big deal, and they were rude along the whole way. I’ve never even used a Mac, but it can’t be any worse than Windows.
