Own a MacBook Pro? Tired of the incessant whining, heat problems, or that faint lone cow mooing somewhere inside your MBP?
The plan, as you can imagine (if you haven’t clicked one of the above links) is for everyone with a problematic MacBook Pro to call Apple’s technical support specialists and inundate them with requests to fix the problems we’re all finding in the MBP line.
However, I’d like to suggest taking this another step further. Rather than just calling Apple Care to complain and have them do nothing, get in their face. How, you ask? Well, if you have an Apple Store near you, take some time and drag your MBP down to the Genius Bar for a little fun. Rush the bar, sort of like last call on St. Patrick’s Day, except instead of wanting the final pint of Guinness, tell the Apple Store Geniuses that you want your MBP fixed of whatever ails it. Personally, I’m a little tired of hearing MBP moo at me while editing. I’m also tired of the whining noises that occasionally come from it. And, if it wasn’t for the fact that I had a vasectomy a few years ago (okay, I know, I’m over-sharing a bit there), I would also worry that certain parts of my body might bake, burn, and fall off.
So go on, set an iCal event for May 20th and tromp down to your local Apple Store to complain about whatever ails your MacBook Pro. I’m sure the one thing that Apple doesn’t want is a long line of customers in the store complaining about their latest product line. Our request is simple: Fix our machines and we’ll quietly go back to working (and hopefully we won’t take part in a class action lawsuit, either).
