Yesterday late afternoon my MacBook Pro really started to run slow, so like all good technical folks I started running some diagnostics only to find it going the Mac OSX version of BSOD (Blue screen of death) -- for a Mac, it is "GSOD" (grey screen of death!). A quick call to Apple confirmed my worst suspicions -- hard drive issue!
And there started the disorientation -- clearly felt out of sync the rest of the night - and it is not like I don't have another device to use -- I have my work laptop (which I am using as I type to post this blog), plus my iPhone plus an iPad (yep, drank the Jobs kool-aid), but I do like my Mac for many things!
So, as of 5PM EDT, no call from the tech yet. Not sure if that is good or bad. I had read that some of the hard drive issues in MacBook Pros had been caused by a defective connecting ribbon, so here's hoping it is that vs a replacement hard drive.
And here's hoping the disorientation starts to fade (and it is!)...
