My MacBook wifi started having problems a year ago. I blogged it, I searched message boards, and I talked to dozens of folks with the same problem. Mac wouldn’t even recognize their was a problem.
Then I gave Apple more money for OS Leopard (or whatever this is called) and wiped my system clean. Did a complete reinstall. The wifi worked WORSE!
Apple will still not recognize there is a problem.
I’m in the Starbucks here at LAX airport and my Mac can’t connect to tmobile–which I pay for. So, I’m forced to use my Spring EVDO card–which I pay for.
This is the second major issue I’ve had with a Mac… the last one felt like it was going to light my jeans on fire.
Combine this with bricking iPhones and I’m starting to wonder: is Apple getting cocky? Why do I need to go to genius bar to get help with wifi. Shouldnt that “just work?” Isn’t that the promise of Apple in the first place… it just works!
Then again, I love surfing the web with my iPhone and downloading podcasts with iTunes. I just don’t like the Apple laptops.I guess I should just buy the sub-note book when it comes out. 🙂
