That irritates me in MacBook

1 year, 1 month ago
I use makbuky about 1 year, I use it daily and many. Before I sat on Ubuntu and Windows. And when I bought MacBook that I expected that reasonableness of OS and convenience of use will be above any praises. After all it Apple and inflated price creates at me the overestimated expectations concerning quality. But alas in practice everything was not so ideal as I considered. Many defects come from fundamental approach of Apple in which they put design above convenience and very often it turns out so that what they do beautiful from the esthetic point of view not conveniently to use in practice. In general I am a supporter of what the beautiful design would not spoil functionality. There is also other class of shortcomings which are simple for eating and not it is clear for what reasons of Apple decided to implement this functionality quite so, but not differently. But about everything one after another.

On this side of barricades

1 year, 2 months ago
Hi, GT! So it turned out that the service centers — rather conflict zone in any shop. The buyer considers that service men are a gantry, and do not want to solve its problem, in service are surprised to persistence of some rams who go on "it, I here at anything". The behavior of people differs a little that in the official and authorized services that in garantiyka that in "cellars": problems almost always identical and the psychology showed in practice long ago that the behavior of the individual of a human individual in general is seldom beaten out from the general canons. All are upset when they speak to them "this repair cannot be carried out on a guarantee" or "we will not be able to accept at you devais since available traces of opening of the body and violation of integrity of construction".


Frame from a mulfilm "About a ram and a goat"

My good companion from Novosibirsk wrote for you excellent article about one life of service centers, I hope, she will help you not to repeat others errors.
