The bad news is that the battery in my MacBook Pro looks like it’s coming apart (see the picture) and has a big bulge. That’s probably why, starting yesterday, the machine would only work for a short time before shutting down.
The good news is that I spoke to the Apple service people yesterday afternoon and they were great. They took my word for the problem and ordered me a new one immediately.
More good news is that, although they said it would take a few days, the package was actually sent overnight and is now sitting on my doorstep.
Unfortunately, that’s in Virginia and I’m in Boston. So, I’ve been forced to take notes on paper with a pen all day. Horrors of low tech!
Worse, however, is that the blogging is also slowed since I’m down to using the machines in the hotel business center. Windows, no less. :-)
In spite of all that this has been another great day at the conference and we are off in a few minutes to cruise Boston harbor.
There’s always some good with the bad, right?
