A few months ago, I wrote about how my one-year-old MacBook Pro’s keyboard keys stopped working if a single piece of dust slipped under there, and more importantly, that neither Apple nor its Geniuses would acknowledge that this was actually a problem. Today, Best Buy announced it is having a significant sale on these computers, marking them hundreds of dollars off. Interesting. Still, I’d suggest you do not buy them.
Apple is beginning to spin out of control. It seems no one is really in charge anymore. Bad design was once only obvious in its operating systems. Now it’s become obvious in some of its hardware too. This isn’t good.
