Tingilinde has a great vignette that pits a clueless customer with a clueless sales representative from Best Buy. The sales rep’s ‘expert opinion’ of what Apple computers can do is a classic example of self-mockery. From this report it looks like the sales reps at Best Buy might want to learn more about Macs, but hey what do I know? I’m not a computer expert like the sales reps at Best Buy.
Lastly, I just found out that my co-writer at PDF For Lawyers, Dave Fishel, is a Mac-enthusiast and thinks that Macs have a place in the legal world. I couldn’t agree more. Macs have a place anywhere there are people who are tired of viruses and spyware and overall wacky computer behavior. I just want a simple, easy to use computer that I don’t have to pay much attention to. It’s interesting that there are sales reps out there that are actually trying to get people to upgrade their PCs by saying it’s too much trouble to zap the viruses on their old machine. And what’s even more amazing is that there are people who don’t laugh out loud when they hear this sales pitch.
