Life Inside Apple and AppleCare

Adam Knight describes the job he recently quit as an agent in in Austin’s AppleCare center (via John Gruber).

Mac Anti-Zealotry

Jesper is starting a list of things he really hates about Apple products. I think he’s right about QuickTime Pro and its support for other formats. I still don’t find two-button mice comfortable, though, and the one-button trackpads are a good incentive for developers not to rely on contextual menus. The Mighty Mouse works great in one-button mode, but every time I boot from an installer DVD I have a momentary confusion when the mouse doesn’t seem to be working. It’s defaulted to two-button mode, and there’s no feedback when I accidentally right-click instead of click.
