I HATE APPLE

First off, let me say that I've been a Mac user for years. But lately I've been incredibly disappointed with their service.

I won't bore you with a number of issues with tech support from both Apple Stores and the telephone support during a recent Xserv purchase for my company.

Now I have an iPod issue. I've had the iPod for eight months & the LCD screen suddenly stopped working. I brought it into my local Mac reseller & they thought they could put a new LCD screen in. Turns out they didn't have a 4th generation screen. So they charged me $25 to waste my time.

So they tell me to go online & register to send it in to Mac for repair. The online site leads me through about 15 pages before it tells me "can't verify serial number". I try again. No luck.

The site gives me a number to call for tech support. I ended up speaking to a woman who could speak very little english, but I beared with it. She told me my warranty was expired, that it was a six-month warranty (which is bullshit) and tried to sell me a two-year Apple Care plan. I said no, the warranty is one year and I didn't want Apple Care.

So then she tells me, yes, it's a one-year plan for online support, not for phone support. I didn't see anything about that in the warranty, and I told her the only reason I was calling was because the website didn't work. So she told me she could have it sent in for repair, but it would cost $30 for shipping & handling. I said that was fine. She again went into sales pitch about Apple Care which I said I had no interest in.

She then put me on hold for 10 more minutes (after originally being on hold twice that long) to "check" something. She then started to process the claim & told me a box would be sent to my house in 48 hours & I gave her my address. She then said she was having an issue with the serial number in the computer & that she would have to get back to me and hung up. She never took my phone number.

I then called back to try to speak with someone slightly more competent, waited another 15 minutes & some jackass picks up the phone doing the "pinched-nose-nasal-voice" thing---"Hello, this is Robert, can I start with your first name". I answered him and even spelled it out. His answer--"Hello, this is Robert, can I start with your first name". I repeated it, thinking he might not have heard me. Again he says -"Hello, this is Robert, can I start with your first name". So this time I just hung up on the fucking smart-ass.

So now the wait to see if I ever get the package. Sorry for the rant, but I don't know what the hell is going on with that company & I'm about ready to make "switch" back to PC.

I had just as bad customer service when I called about an issue with my ipod. Plus, as Tom had ranted about on another thread, i found their OS has been going downhill over the last few years. I've been using Mac for about 7 years now and am starting to get really sick of their bullshit. To this day thinking about the awful customer "support" i endured last year makes me so angry i want to sucker punch the next apple employee I see.

The OS keeps getting better and better and they fixed our iBook well out of warranty for free, although my brother had some issues getting an LCD panel replaced. I've heard some tales of woe on the support front though. The OS is the best desktop OS by far, though.

Ed (dali), Friday, 4 March 2005 22:15 (sixteen years ago) link

haha i've decided that my next computer (which i have to buy this year) will be a mac because the few times i've dealt with apple tech support they've been nothing but helpful and responsive, which is way more than i can say for the no-name-pc-manufacturer jerkwads i'm dealing with right now.

I sometimes wonder how Apple make any profit at all. For every computer they sell you, they seem to end up paying for two. The iBook Ed mentions used to be mine, and I was ready to throw it out because half of it wasn't working. It was also outside its guarantee period. But Ed and Suzy managed to get Apple to replace CD drive, keyboard, screen...

Apple replaced my new iBook's motherboard while I was in Japan. That's hundreds of dollars worth, at no charge to me. Of course, it shouldn't have failed within six months in the first place...

Best decision I made computer wise was to buy my powerbook at John Lewis .: free two year extended warranty. Extended warranties/apple care are well worth it where laptops are concerned.

xypost: why don't you have any interest in Apple Care? it seems to be what you need.

Because I don't believe in a company making you pay for a warantee that should be offered for free upfront. I was under the impression that a one-year warantee meant that if something goes wrong in the first year, they actually fix the thing, not put you on the phone with several douchebags who are trying to sell you additional warantees.

Shit, when the first warantee doesn't seem to work, why would I want to buy another one?

jay blanchard (jay blanchard), Friday, 4 March 2005 23:53 (sixteen years ago) link

I had problems with the Apple Store when I tried to order my iPod from them, but when I cancelled the order, they were very good about it. My iBook had one of the faulty logic boards, and they replaced it several times for free, in addition to doing some repairs which were apparently not supposed to be free. So I'm content with them.

But it does sound like you have a problem with your serial number, Jay.

Casuistry (Chris P), Saturday, 5 March 2005 00:00 (sixteen years ago) link

his problem with the serial number is that he probably never registered the durned thing.

cutty (mcutt), Saturday, 5 March 2005 00:06 (sixteen years ago) link

i also had a problem with entering my ipod's serial number on the website. but what happened to me was that i bought a "pre-owned" ipod from the apple store and when the original owner returned it the store, that serial number apparently got, um, voided or something. no matter; i went back to the apple store and the genius bar genius was happy to solve my problem.

jbr (Jody Beth Rosen), Saturday, 5 March 2005 00:16 (sixteen years ago) link

there's nothing more retarded i can think of, business-wise, than how the genius bar was closed for like 2 weeks before christmas this past year. good job, jobs! way to alienate your clientele!

tho when i was waiting there, i did see todd oldham.

hstencil (hstencil), Saturday, 5 March 2005 00:20 (sixteen years ago) link

yeah, the genius bar in Seattle closed during Christmas shopping mayhem. Major bummer. I have had nothing but good luck to this point with Apple. They've sent me 3 replacement remotes for my iPod, all at no cost to me, without me proving my others were damaged. Simple online form. Apple Care is essential for any Apple purchase. They recently replaced my iPod with a new one in about 20 minutes time at the Genius bar. Neither the remotes or iPod should have busted in the first place, but they did replace them with ease and very little questioning.

RJG (RJG), Saturday, 5 March 2005 02:36 (sixteen years ago) link

All apple products have a one year warranty and 90 day tech support, pretty standard in the computer industry. You want more, pay for more.

Ed (dali), Saturday, 5 March 2005 06:51 (sixteen years ago) link

I have gotten to the point where I just equate Apple with Audi and Volkswagen, great product, love it when it works, when it breaks, fuck yourself.

TOMBOT, Saturday, 5 March 2005 20:08 (sixteen years ago) link

Try getting your $300 back after paying for a repair they are now refunding everyone for (ibook logic board). Grrr. It pisses me off because at the time of my problems, they acted as if I was the only person encountering such difficulties, in spite of my reading otherwise on the internets. They are now claiming the repair that took them two tries to fix is not in their records.

amandasc, Saturday, 5 March 2005 20:38 (sixteen years ago) link

Most American PC manufacturers include 1 year of tech support.

Orbit (Orbit), Sunday, 6 March 2005 21:02 (sixteen years ago) link

Exactly what Orbit said. And what Ed said regarding OSX--it's by far the best desktop OS, and nothing comes close.

My tech experience with Apple has been sensational. A friend called me today to tell me that his mini iPod was replaced in less than five business days, and he also got the new generation mini in place of his old one that had died. No charge.

I've dealt with Dell and Gateway and their CSRs are no better than Apple's. HPs can blow me, they've sucked.

don weiner, Sunday, 6 March 2005 23:22 (sixteen years ago) link

whoever has been using Apples since whenever and loves it can eat a dick.

the desktop I have at work running XP has been up and alive for 2 years with barely any reboots. It does everything I want it to do, does it quickly, and I can navigate painlessly without ever touching the mouse if I feel like it.

I was raised on Apple and my first job was DTP on a Mac, followed by audio editing on a Mac, more DTP, and so on. OS 7+ had more than its share of problems and stupid quirks but the hardware was rock solid and at least its behavior was predictable.

Since getting my latest-edition powerbook I've put it through little more than I ever tried to do with my old OS

TOMBOT, Monday, 14 March 2005 17:18 (sixteen years ago) link

TOMBOT, Monday, 14 March 2005 17:21 (sixteen years ago) link

Fuck it.
Keeps mistaking the rest of my post for an HTML statement. Now it's lost to the ether. All computers are stupid and worthless, except that old LC & Quadra we had running 6.0.7 - 7.7, those were pretty stable builds as I recall.

My old Quadra used to have a TV Tuner in it and be able to do image captures from live cable broadcasts, then I could import them into my cheap, incredibly easy to use paint program and do whatever with them. I believe it cost approximately half of what my laptop did! My laptop lets me chat and surf the internet. And rip CDs.

TOMBOT, Monday, 14 March 2005 17:49 (sixteen years ago) link

In case anyone is wondering what this is all about, I have had "issues" with my laptop since purchasing it (A YEAR AGO, THINGS THAT COST $2000 SHOULDN'T DIE IN A YEAR), mainly that if I put it to sleep via either apple menu->sleep or by shutting the cover, I've got no better than a 50-50 chance the fucker will wake up again.

Well today it decided it wasn't going to wake up again, ever, as I'm being greeted with a totally white screen.

What's funny is that like doing searches on my own to try to figure out wtf this computer is doing right now (I mean not even the sad face x-eye Mac or the question mark Mac! NOTHING AT ALL! WHITE SCREEN! I know how to handle the other things!), everyone who is reporting similar issues to me is like bitching about how they have all this important blah blah blah they were doing with the Mac prior hand. Is it that no one who has this failure who is only using their Mac for chat, porn, and MP3s can be bothered to get in on the discussions, or is it because they don't die if that's all you use it for? Because yeah, it seems like my sleep problem increases tenfold whenever I've been using my iBook more for writing or photo work. If all I've done on the damn thing is use iChat for two weeks, no problems whatsoever with starting it up, back when it, uh, started up.

What does this imply??? Is there like some inherent instability in the majority of the "native" programs that come bundled with OSX or is this just really fucked up coincidence?

Also it seems that this particular issue with the iBook G3 was so bad they threw the whole "your warranty is expired, give us $500" shenanigans out the window, and searching on this same issue with "Powerbook" has not given me the same results--ARE IBOOKS PIECES OF SHIT? wtf?

Allyzay, Monday, 14 March 2005 17:59 (sixteen years ago) link

As an aside, I noted that my computer was purchased a year ago, actually a year and 3 weeks, making it out of warranty now. Every. Single. Computer. I. Have. Ever. Owned.* Has. Done. This. Do they design computers to die at warranty, in general? Because it is not just me who has reported this ridiculous situation going on, and I'm starting to think that if this is going to be the case, wasting my money on a pricey computer with only a single year warranty is not worth the hassle, since all other brands have 3-4 year standard warranties, so at least I'll get 3 years out of it, instead of 1, before this message will self-destruct.

*with the exception of my ancient PowerMac that I had when I was 14-15-16, which only died because my sister is a dick.

I am pretty close to deciding to become the female Punisher, except murdering computer firms, instead of bad guys.

Allyzay, Monday, 14 March 2005 18:02 (sixteen years ago) link

although the best customer service story I have ever been witness to was in an Apple store, when our friend J0sh had a bunch of seemingly sensible questions about using X type of Mac as a server, they made sense to the rest of us, and the sales guy just blurted at him "YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT"

And then kind of ran away????

That was pretty funny.

I have a friend who just got a job repairing computers at Tekserve. He just started last week so I'm leery about hitting him up for favors, but the hitting up will be happening, oh yes it will. I would be happy to serve as an intermediate hitter-upper for your computer, Ally.

Indeed. If anyone is on Big Sur/11.x right now, be sure to reformat your TimeMachine drive(s) as APFS volumes. MUCH faster improvement on speed.

I wonder if it does that by default if you let TM format the disk

calstars, Sunday, 4 July 2021 23:06 (two months ago) link

three weeks pass...

figured out why Time Machine hates me / is enragingly slow - it just doesn't like my workflow. it wants to wait to back up until your Mac is idle, and since I have a laptop, rarely is the machine idle and the external backup drive attached at the same time.

of course, I figured this out after I shelled out for a dumb expensive solid state external drive.

There’s a free plugin that lets you set your own interval. I think I have it going once in the middle of the night.

dan selzer, Saturday, 31 July 2021 02:41 (one month ago) link

if you rarely run time machine because the disk is never connected then time machine will take a long time when it does run because it has a lot of work to do. it's not magic. once a week is not enough for it to feel fast.

the trick to fast backups is to backup often. this is easy with desktops, and there's no reason to mess with the defaults there. with laptops 1) have the backup drive on the network, e.g. attached to an ancient mac in clamshell mode, attached to your router (most support this), attached to one of these things https://www.hardkernel.com/shop/odroid-hc4/, or get an old time capsule from craigslit 2) allow time machine to run when the laptop is not plugged in. there is a setting for this somewhere.

I plug it in daily, and it's just way faster when I put the display to sleep and walk away. I really think TM is just being too polite.

Those odroids look wicked cool though, I might get one.

ah right, yeah it runs as pretty low priority. you can confirm that's the problem for you with this https://osxdaily.com/2016/04/17/speed-up-time-machine-by-removing-low-process-priority-throttling/. i'd be a little surprised if it is if everything computer and disk are both APFS and computer is running big sur. but if there's any HFS or older macOS then yeah it can be a rough.

lukas, Sunday, 1 August 2021 19:45 (one month ago) link

It's take a long time for me to come to this simple truth but: I just don't like multi-window operating systems. 90% of the time I just want to work full screen in one app and when I don't, I want to put two app windows side by side so I can refer to, or paste from, one while I work in the other, and that involves such a pain-in-the-arse process of dragging them into a size and position I want. So I now use Spaces more strictly, which is good for the 90% but not much for the 10% (I'm probably still doing it wrong)

I feel like iPadOS probably does this in a more useful way but I don't do useful work on an iPad.

Alba, Monday, 2 August 2021 13:25 (one month ago) link

iPadOS is as bad, but from the other side. Trying to get two windows into the right place to do a drag-and-drop is infuriating. iOS 15 is meant to help a bit though.

The Linux "tiling" windowmanagers - you can always see all/most open windows, there's no overlaps and they're automatically arranged - are really interesting and might solve it, but I've never used one so they might also be bad.

Alba, Monday, 2 August 2021 14:26 (one month ago) link

Part of the problem with relying on hoonja-doojas is my brain is just slightly too full with keyboard shortcuts (and I'm running out of ergonomic combinations too – like I've assigned Cmd-shift-S to Zoom window, which is preferable to me to actual full screen, and that's nice, but whenever I'm in Firefox it doesn't work as the app uses it for something else)

Alba, Monday, 2 August 2021 14:30 (one month ago) link

I need another combiner key on the bottom row! Or maybe windows management is an area where the Touchbar could actually be trained to be useful.

Alba, Monday, 2 August 2021 14:31 (one month ago) link

Yeah, the snap-left or snap-right dual screen thing was introduced in Catalina. At first I thought, "great! This is the only thing from W7+ I miss"... and then I almost immediately went back to tabbing through full-screen apps again.

i'm sure i've done split view before it updated to catalina though, and searching suggests that previously if you held down the green button until the window floated then you could drag it left or right and it'd tile.

(i don't think it's as nice an experience as the windows version, or the linux Mate version fwiw)

koogs, Monday, 2 August 2021 15:07 (one month ago) link

Nope, this is not happening for me. Holding down the green button does nothing.

yeah, might be an 'after version x but before version y' thing. i think i was on sierra before this. our work builds only *slightly* newer than your work builds obv. (stackoverflow answer was from 2015, someone reported it working in 2019, but no OS mentioned either time)

I've always used SizeUp for simple window management. Throwing windows into corners/sides, between monitors. i've never taken to Spaces. I sometimes wish SizeUp had sticky/hot corners but I do it all with numeric keypad commands.

I can't remember why I chose it over the more feature-filled Moom. Maybe it was just more basic and I liked that.

I agree with Apple on this one. Better to not include swear words in the dictionary than have them there and potentially surprise you autocorrecting to them in the worst possible places.

Try going to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> text replacement and then just add swear words as shortcuts for themselves, ie fuck = fuck, fucking = fucking etc
