    Went to the apple store today to book my macbook in for it's repair. The service was excellent (As usual) but I was really amused at how geeky everyone is that works in there :rotfl:

    Whilst I was chatting to the genius fixing my macbook, there was another genius with 3 rather attractive women waiting for their friend who was getting help with her iPhone (covered in sparkly diamonds I might add :rotfl:) and the man just did not know how to interact with women :rotfl: it was hilarious to watch.

    Niamh was with me and she was waving and showing off to them (As she always does with people haha) and they also did not know how to react to a baby. :rotfl:

    I will soundly sleep to night in the fact that I am *not* the biggest :geekon: in the north west :rotfl:

    since you know I live in the north west, there was never any danger of you being the biggest :geekon: :lol:

    :rotfl: I didn't think of that actually. I would love to write a sit-com about the genius bar nerds :rotfl: I don't know if it's in the job description or the liverpool store just attracts them but it's hilarious!

    Maybe they didn't have on their formal t-shirt. :unsure:

    You know, they're very sensitive to the way they dress. It's a know fact that if they're wearing their black t-shirts, they'll have no luck with women. Or anyone else for that matter. :laugh2:

    However, just you wait till they get the iPad in the stores. Then they'll have lovely royal blue t-shirts that say iPad on the front of them. Turns them into rampant lady killers instead of uber-:geekon:

    :ROFL:

    Tom :)macwave:... dress for success. Or not!)

    :rotfl: They have royal blue t-shirts in our store, I wonder if they'll switch to black for the iPad :unsure: The genius I spoke to said "I expect you'll have it back in a day or two but it's policy to say 5-7 days"

    What annoyed me quite a bit was that the only part that was damaged was the trackpad. :yes: On my bill this cost £27 to fix. However, the battery had a water mark on it and so did the casing. They are replacing the keyboard, the uppercasing, the housing and the battery. The keyboard etc was £54, the battery was £89, the labour was around £60. I think they have to replace them because if they genuinley broke then I'd not be able to get them repaired in-warranty because they would have a big water stain on them!

    :rotfl: I still can't believe that happened. The whole time I've had my rubbishy toshiba it was fine, and then Niamh somehow manages to get juice over my lovely new macbook!

    Went into the Milton Keynes store today, I really really really want an ipad for my birthday. I asked what the hold up was and they said it was the licensing.

    No the ipad, you know the CE mark on the back of iPhone? he may have been talking rubbish but sounded quite credible

    Pretty sure that you just self-certify for that CE Mark unless under very rare circumstances you're made to prove compliance.

    Sounds like rubbish but perhaps thats what theyve been told!

    either way I wish they'd hurry up
