Click

My computer died. On Sunday afternoon, I turned around to look something up on the internet (what in the world did we do before Google?). I searched, got a few options that looked like they potentially had the information I was looking for. Clicked on a couple. And then… Click. Just like that. Click. The computer shut down. It even made that noise. Click. No power outage. No power surge. Just a simple little Click. I tried to turn it on again. I unplugged it and re-plugged it and tried to turn it on again. I tested the outlet to make sure it still had power. It did. I unplugged it for an hour, plugged it back in and tried to turn it on again. Still nothing. I called the tech support line. The tech’s answer? Unplug it, leave it off for about 20 seconds. Then plug it back in. Gee, and you get paid for this? (By the way, it didn’t work even when the official tech-guy told me to do it.)

So, we had to take it in to the store for service. That was on Monday. They kept it. Its Thursday. I miss my Mac! I’m sitting here trying to use a PC for the first time in 2 years. Its so unfamiliar. And once upon a time I hated Mac’s and thought PC’s were the only option if you were serious about computers. I admit it. I was wrong. Once.

Still waiting for the call to pick it up. The service guy at the Genius Bar (can I work there? I love that. Genius Bar.) said it would take 3 – 5 business days. Its been 3. I want my Mac back. Now, please.
