in which i whine and complain about apple
bought a mac about 3 years back
apple mouse
apple keyboard
apple lcd display

the mouse lasted about 3 months and the stupid scroll nub stopped working
got another: it lasted about another 3 months and tscroll nub stopped working
so i got a non-apple mouse

the keyboard lasted about 2 and a half years
then started not working correctly
so i got a non-apple keyboard

i think the lcd display just died, after 3 years
gotta see if a different display will work

none of this stuff was cheap compared to the generic competition
i'm feelin grumpy about apple

1. Sorry about that. We've used Apple
products for years and never had a problem.
Yes, the mouse needs new batteries occasionally, but
that's about all. Wouldn't consider buying from another
company. Hope all turns out well with your new stuff......z

3. If you're anywhere neat an Apple Store, you could try bringing all into the free Genius Bar...
They've been very good to me:

Replaced iPhones AFTER warranty period expired, twice.

Replaced a bad battery and the entire keyboard more than three years after the fact on a MacBook.

And a few other free fixes, they're the best.

:hi:
