My computer at 5:00PM:
Yay! Note, by the way, that Apple haven't gotten around to updating their copyright and trademark info for this year, which seems uncharacteristically careless of them.
This comes days after I got an upgrade to 4GB at work; I just couldn't resist any more.
Actually buying the RAM was interesting; a certain large computer and computer parts retailer in Dublin tried to sell me a 2GB DIMM (the form factor used in desktops) at the wrong frequency, and I had to insist that really, I know what I was doing, and this was not what I wanted or asked for.
This, I think, highlights a problem with the electronics retail business. It is clearly not reasonable or realistic to expect many staff at such places to be competent; they really pay at the unskilled/semi-skilled worker level. However, I get the impression that they are trained never to show doubt, even when they are flat-out wrong. This, I would have thought, is probably in the long term more damaging to business than them just being honest and saying 'no idea; I'll have to look it up'. How many people end up buying the wrong thing due to poor advice?
On a similar vein, while I was there, another employee was telling a customer how it was impossible to switch between windows with the keyboard on MacOS. Yes.
