PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In what is certainly entirely expected, I was wrong about the whole CrunchPad drama. I suspected it was nothing more than a publicity stunt, but as it turns out, Fusion Garage's side of the story confirmed that the break between them and Arrington is real. During a press conference today, Fusion Garage told their side of the story, while also officially introducing the CrunchPad Joo Joo.

Apple replaced my MacBook Pro twice and the hard drive seven (!) times under warranty, no problems.

Still not sure if it was a batch of bad Hitachi 320GB drives (last time it failed I replaced it myself with a 320GB Seagate, end of problems) or a firmware problem making the disks eat themselves.

Granted, this was a totally ridiculous situation (seven dead drives in 9 months? WTF?!), but I really can't complain about the service I received from Apple.

AppleCare is really good about fixing or replacing just about anything. Battery, hard drive, network controller, just about anything...

... except the display.

Every time I buy a Mac (has happened 3 times), I ask to open the box, power it on, and check the display BEFORE I buy it. I come in ready to buy and flash the credit card. But this is my condition. They always ask the manager, and they always let me do it.

Ordering a Mac online may be more convenient than driving all the way to the Apple store, but I think it's worth the inconvenience to make sure I get something that at least _starts_out_ good.
