The good, the bad, the ugly.

So a little annoyed with Apple today.
 
I asked for people to give me Apple store gift cards for Christmas and birthday gifts over the last couple of years – this was so it would make it easier for people so that they wouldn't need to go online and get confused with getting a giftcard for the online store.
 
I went in to the Apple store today to see how customizable the computers are in-store, and they only do RAM and matte screens.
 
Which SUCKS, because I wanted to upgrade to a 3.06 GHz processor on the top-of-the-line 15" and a faster hard drive.
 
I guess the silver lining is that getting a replacement hard drive doesn't void AppleCare, so I can always change it down the road if needs be. Just a little annoying that I'm being hampered from getting my "dream machine", but I suppose I'll end up saving about $350 and still have a good amount of power (it'll be 2.8 GHz).
 
I also picked up some trades at lunch:
  • Usagi Yojimbo vol. 20: Glimpses of Death
  • Usagi Yojimbo vol. 21: The Mother of Mountains
  • The Boys vol. 5: Herogasm
  • The Immortal Iron Fist Vol. 5: Escape from the Eighth City
I foresee great reading in my weekend!
 
And in a total show of faith in customers, the guys at the Hairy Tarantula gave me a copy of Usagi vol. 19 to hold on to when I complained that the copy I had had 8 pages misprinted and put in upside down. All I need to do is bring the misprinted copy in the next time I'm in. That's pretty awesome customer service.
 
All in all, a fairly productive lunch. I'll eat later – my lunch is actually defrosting on my desk.
