Just call me Mr TypeALot…

20 Aug08

Incredible. The coating on my MacBook pro is pretty worn (where I hold my hands) but today the Command key broke in two? I sure use it a lot, but since MacBook Pro is a favorite with programmers, shouldn’t the keyboard handle our everyday usage?


Update 1: 15 minutes to wait for Applecare support. Hmm…
Update 2: AppleCare says this is not covered. Suggests calling an authorized service partner
Update 3: Last 40 minutes I have tried both Eplehuset and Humac (the two suggested partners) and none of them answers the phone.
Update 4: Finally got through to Humac. They said I’d have to hand them my machine or they could send a service technician to my house. If that isn’t overkill I really don’t know what is…
Update 5: Eplehuset finally answered the phone and said “sure, no problem. we’ll fix that for you.” They’re officially my Apple Heroes!

    Hi Raghavendra,
    Not sure what video you are talking about? Can’t remember to have done anything with the FlexStore example?

    I’m also a programmer and I ‘m planning to switch from the Vista to mac and especially wanted to buy MacBook Pro. But I abondoned the idea, thx u saved my time and money.
    My keyboard should also handle my everyday usage and i don’t want to have a key broken in two one day before a project deadline.That would be a great problem for me.
    I hope u get ur key repaired as soon as porssible.
