Good Morning, God!
Ah, my, what a day. I had a computer malfunction and spent time on the phone with a dear Apple troubleshooter.
Then I made four trips to the Apple Store in Kahala — which resulted in my old (dead) hard drive being replaced — for free. That is mostly good news, God. But, my grandson, Mark, had upgraded the original 250 GB hard drive to 640 GB. Not at all surprisingly, Apple only replaces what I bought from them.
Not surprising — if I had remembered that I had bought a 250 GB hard drive! But, of course, I didn’t remember. And that meant that my 374 GB of data in my backup hard drive wouldn’t fit in my free replacement 250 GB hard drive.
Worse yet, somehow, the problem of my having independently upgraded didn’t emerge until I had gone home to get my backup hard drive and then back again for the power cord needed to run it. Sigh. This was not my finest communication hour — or two or three. Still, the young man helping me at the Genius Bar did more than I was entitled to. He put on all the Apple applications that I had on my old hard drive. Even one that I had as a “family plan” with Mark. And the whole time he was pleasant, kind and caring.
The other day, God, I was wondering if Companies might in time supplant Countries. Frankly, God, there are days I wouldn’t mind if Apple was running the World.
