From Paradise to the Geek Prom

Last Minute

I’m at the Apple Store. The day before our flight I learn my MacBook battery has 42% health after only 92 cycles. The iStat widget told me so. After a full calibration and a PMU reset, nothing improved. Of course, I never run my laptop off battery so I didn’t notice it barely held a charge.

Made a 9 am appointment at the Ala Moana Apple Store. Drove into town. Discovered I’d made the appointment fir tomorrow. D’oh!

Thankfully, Apple Camp was in session, doors were open early, and Dorothy and Genius Dan squeezed me in. Got a new battery and off to buy some jeans (San Diego may be a bit cool for cargo shorts… the only thing I have apart from dress slacks).

Oh. And iPhone 3Gs are sold out.
