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.
