ahh got it. So, is there anything good that works for prevention of further hair loss?

I forgot to answer the main thread topic... I do brain surgery research at the Cleveland Clinic.
You have such an awesome job Chewy . I guess the Cleveland Clinic is one of the perks of living in Cleveland.

You guys really really need one of these for customer service:



Apple really needs to lose the pretentiousness of online appointment making and then having to go in and stand around waiting for the kid with the fauxhawk and ear discs to stop looking at the device strapped around his neck trying to figure out who's next all while shunning everyone else that walks up to him with a simple question.

Just MHO of course.

Every store is different.

But honestly, a ticket counter would take twice as long! An elderly woman doesn't want to haul her iMac into the store to take a ticket and wait for an hour. She want's to make an appointment for 3PM and carry it in for direct service. For simple questions an appointment is not needed, such as small iOS questions or a system navigating problem.

Also, the sales team is not the "Genius Bar" Apple can not afford to have 50+ Dedicated support and "Geniuses." The sales team is not always crazed Mac users, as this is "just another sales job" to a lot of them. So waltzing up to these sales persons does not always mean guaranteed answers, because that is not their first job-selling is. They are only trained in the basics of the products, that would be the roughly the most they can help you with. Anything bigger and make an appointment.

You can't always walk into a BMW dealer and speak directly to a Tech in the garage, and most likely the salesman can't answer your question.

Being this big and dealing with hundreds of people per day, online appointments are a necessity.

Plus like Tim Cook would ever listen to me

so what's the scoop on upcoming products? imo the innovation left when steve jobs died. whatever ideas he had, i think he took to the grave. i really doubt he left behind a notebook of great ideas to a company that once fired him.

new products from steve jobs: ipod, itunes, iphone, imac, macbook air, ipad. it seems like all the recent products consist of obvious upgrades (faster chips, better batteries, etc).

what is the next big thing at apple?

You do know steve left like 3 years of product plans when he died...anything coming out right now and in the near future would still be happening if steve was alive.

Managing partner for a $5 billion startup bank who are capitalizing on the FDIC loss share program to acquire and rehab failed banks. We basically acquire failed banks in the Southeast region. From that point, we place loans that are performing into our subsidiary "performing bank" and attempt to rehab the non-performing assets through our Special Asset Bank. We have a 5 year window to call on the loss-share for any loan that cannot be rehabilitated.

i doubt it. apple maps is now a flop. unless they cure cancer between now and the end of the year, there's nothing new down the pipe. holiday sales: expected. if i was in your position i'd cash out.
