Thankful Thursday

Good Morning Friends~I want to tell you how thankful I am for Apple-the company.  Yesterday, hubby and I drove down to the Apple Store in a shopping mall near Denver. I had never been inside one of their stores before; however was very familiar with the company because it started in a city called Cupertino, where we once lived.  You may recall that hubby and I both got IPhones this last year and then also got a IPad Mini after Christmas. We had issues with it and a call into a tech center didn't resolve it so we set up an appt. Can I tell you that I've never been in  a cooler store; I am not a techy by any stretch of the imagination, but this store was incredible(as I've been told all their stores are).  In a time when many stores don't have enough help, I'd say there were at least 16 sales people available.  What we found out I want to share because it could happen to one of you.  Apparently, our mini was doing "Ghosting"(had never heard of this before)where it acts like it has a mind of its own and does really weird crazy things.  It is a software problem and they took our mini in the back, deleted all the software and then reinstalled it.  We waited to make sure all the programs we had on it(not many)were on and running; we also went into several programs to see if we had any issues and didn't.  What an easy fix and now that I know where the store is, I won't hesitate to go back or even check out the store in Boulder.  They have made other high end stores pale in comparison.  I'm off this morning to bible study so must get a move on.  My confidence in Apple has doubled and I'm thankful that it was so easy to get our Mini fixed.
Hope you have a blessed day dear ones!

  4. Good to here that someone had an easy time getting an electronic fixed and with friendly service.

  5. So glad you had a good experience with Apple and got your mini fixed...It is so frustrating when one's computer doesn't work properly..I know this from experience..hahahah

    I hope your Bible study was enlightening and maybe you will share with us what you are learning...

  6. Hi Noreen! Carl love Apple and he totally agrees with you about their stores! Glad you got everything all figured out, and I hope you've had a good Thursday!

  7. That is so great to hear! I've never heard of "ghosting" either; I'm so glad they were able to straighten everything out for you.
    We became Apple-a-holics a few years ago - but I've never been in an Apple store! Our town is too small - the closest one is in KC. That might not be a bad thing in a way. LOL.

  8. Good customer service is so rare these days!

  10. Hi Noreen,
    So glad you were able to get your mini fixed. Course, I have no earthly idea what that really is I am so technically challenged!! lol
    but it is nice to have something you own working right??? lol
    Nice you enjoyed the store so much and they got everything up and running properly. Have fun with it.
    Blessings my friend, Nellie

  11. So glad you got your iPad fixed and it was an easy fix too! I am considering swapping to all Apple products when we need new laptops etc.. I hear they are far superior to the PC as is the customer service. I hope Bible class was good! :)

  12. Woof! Woof! LOVE Apple too ... oh you mean the manufacturer of iPhone n iPad. My peeps are MAC users too. Do you know that I can balance an apple on my head, check my balancing trick post. Hope your Thursday was great. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
