#35. Computer in the shop
Tuesday, October 09, 2018
My new computer has been taken back to Apple for repair.
When I bought this computer, it had only 2 small usb ports on each side. So I purchased a separate accessory that plugged into the two ports, and that provided every possible connection i
needed: from a camera card reader to an html hookup, with lots of larger usb ports that were compatible with my old computer.I
I really liked this accessory. It was complete and compact -- a really great design.
It looked like this.
Well, unfortunately, that item ruined one of the usb ports that it plugged into. And today, my computer is in the shop because of that. Luckily, there will be no cost to me because of the warranty. But it is a real inconvenience to be without my computer for a week.
The better model, I was told is to buy that same item that plugs in to one port, and does so with a single connecting cord.
So I am passing on this info, to prevent anyone else from experiencing the same problem.
