    a few years ago, it was easy to get a genius bar appointment when you had a problem with a piece of hardware....and you could actually sit and talk with the guys, haggle a bit and get stuff replaced.

    now, you have to schedule appointments A WEEK in advance, wait for hours in insanely crowded stores, and the techs are either so arrogant or so overworked that they won't/can't talk to you.

    i can usually get a same day appointment. i have noticed that the genius bar has been much more busy over the past 3 years. kinda sucks when you have a 2pm appointment, but you wait till 2:15 because idiots in front of you are wasting everyone's time because they need office reinstalled or something

    that last part was true for me. The tech has people back to back and just did not give a shit about the issue i came in there for, so I had to leave with a bull shit 'solution' that never really did anything for me.

    I've found their in store support to be pretty crappy lately. When you have a problem its no appointments available, when you get the appointment they tell you do do crap that doesnt fix the issue. I'm no mac power user at all and half the time I've already tried everything they do.

    Hell, I had one tell me the other day to try to restore my iPhone through iTunes in order to solve the problem of iTunes not recognizing when the phone is connected.:squint:

    Let me say that again, the phone stopped being recognized by iTunes and it wont charge either, so they suggested I restore the phone through iTunes.

    Yeah, genius there buddy. :rolleyes:
