Well I wasn't joking but maybe I was mistaken.  I have had good experiences in the past with them on non AppleCare issues, but in the past few years my only non AppleCare calls have been about my xServe and I either paid for support by the minute, or got lucky and had someone help me for free.  However the Server support people are not necessarily representative of the consumer ones.

 

With AppleCare however they definitely are very good.

My daughters ipod got wet and wouldn't turn on, I let it sit for a few days, still wouldn't turn on.

 

Figuring it was fried for good, I took it to the Apple store in the mall. I asked the manager if it could be sent for repair, she responded "ipods are disposable, you can't repair one, it's ruined. What we do in a case like this is give you 10% off a new one". Not being prepared to buy one, I leave in disappointment.

 

Three months pass, daughter totally bummed about no pod, my other daughters ipod stopped working for no apparent reason. I bring it to Best Buy where I bought it, the kid (Geek Squad employee) pushes a sequence on the key pad, hands it over and said "it's fixed".

 

YOUR KIDDING!!!

 

I go home, try it on the other ipod, walla, it works.

 

F... Apple support, and their damn stores.

Well shoot, you should have read the damn manual -- the hard reset is important to know.  Had to use it today in fact.

Excuse me for a minute, but I'm going to put this thread back on topic.

 

I ordered new skis from o2gearshop yesterday -- a killer deal on this year's Salomon Tornado Ti. I sent an e-mail question to them last week and got a prompt and informative reply from Ryan, the Customer Service Manage. Then I stumbled on this thread today. Was it time to panic? I found out that the OP has posted this bitch rant on a number of forums, his or her only post, just like here. I also found out that the reviews for o2gearshop are either 5-star raves or 1-star pans, nothing in between

 

Anyway, although the web site said that the skis would not ship for 5 to 7 business days, they shipped out today I guess the OP is a self-important tool.

Sorry to hear you had such good luck W/O2, I guess you could still manage to make a trip before your gear arrives and bitch about not skiing because waaa waaaa waaaaaa !  

 

I gess some people just have all the luck!

Before I can take this warning in earnest I need to know.....

What color are the skiis and did you use any top protection once you recieved them or are you only worried about the bottom wax so you get a good slide with no abrasions???

The diamonds are on the bottom right? Very good for rock skiing. Expensive though as they fall off.

 

In order to tie the two threads together, I give you this diamond encrusted iphone.

Actually, I think it's veeery cool....  (it's 1.6 million english pounds!)

 

The home key is over 6 carats.

I heard that in New York City there's a girl with diamonds on the soles of her shoes; I don't know if she skis.

I haven't had any dealings with O2 but I have bought skis from a few different online retailers....and to be honest, I doubt I'll ever buy another pair in a ski shop.  If you know what you want...you can't beat buying skis online.  Boots on the other hand are an entirely different story....

You should also check out the Motorola Aura...it's main gear is made in Switzerland! It has over 700 individual parts! It costs $2000! It only has a 2Mpx phone!

Motorola stock is under $4!! How can that be!!!

 

(I used to work there when it was a global powerhouse...sad to see where it is now and all my old friends shunted off to some other struggling company called Freescale)
