Caught in Apple restart hell

I just loaded the latest Apple Macintosh updates.

Now my machine won’t boot. Well, that’s not really true. When I power it up the Apple comes on. Then the screen gets dark and a little message comes up:

“You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button for several seconds or press the Restart button.”

So I restart. And get the same message. I do it five times just to make sure.

And so, now I’m back on my Windows machine.

Screw you Apple and your ads saying you’re better than Microsoft. Screw you. Screw you. Screw you.

Screw you and your controlling PR machine.

Grrrrr.

Oh, and if you think I have something against Apple, no I don’t. But my computer, a 17-inch MacBookPro, has already been in the shop twice. My son’s MacBookPro 15-inch has been in the shop twice and has a dead USB port now so both of our machines need to go back into the shop.

What’s ironic is lots of other computer companies would LOVE to give me free stuff (I don’t take it) but Apple is the only company that’s never raised a PR finger to help me. Instead I feel so honored to spend my money on this crap. Why? Just to have a shiny machine?

Well, sorry. The shine is wearing off. Screw you Apple.

  1. Yeah, I’ve just went through nine circles of Hell trying to get Apple to correct the shipping address of a macbook I bought from them. After about 2 weeks I just told them to give me a refund. It’s been 2 weeks since then and they still haven’t even got something as simple as giving a refund done. I have no faith in Apple. I will never buy or attempt to buy another Apple product in my life. I reported them to the Better Business Bureau btw

  3. I am trying to help my mom with her laptop. It is an Apple. It starts to boot up and the Apple icon comes on and then a circle (like it is thinking) and it just gets stuck here and wont go any further. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks so much.
