It has come to my attention that I am again somehow involved in a dispute with the manufacturers of MacPadd. I would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight and provide some details on my transaction with this company.
While I have written of my experiences in a previous post, let me recap for those who do not want to read that lengthy account. In an impulse purchase I bought a MacPadd Pro mouse pad through the manufacturer’s (QMS) web site.
When Apple Computer booked the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts for a media event, the media and customers went into overdrive concocting rumors of what new products or software will be unveiled.
The most popular rumor is the release of the highly anticipated Apple Tablet which has been expected for over a year. As is always the case, Apple closely manages the information that is “leaked” prior to an announcement.
With the struggles I have had trying to procure a MacPadd mouse pad (I still have not received it and continue to try and work with the manufacturer to finally take delivery of the mouse pad I purchased), I finally decided that I just could not wait any longer and needed to find something.
While I would love to continue waiting for delivery of the mouse pad I bought, I have to move on especially now that I have a glass top desk. As everyone knows, the laser mice that are popular on the market now just don’t work on a glass surface or if they do the performance is lackluster to say the least.
I am not sure when it happened but I suddenly realized that the entire world seems to have standardized on PDF files as the de-facto standard for delivering documents electronically. It seems like every time I turn around I am receiving another PDF file through email or as a link to a web site.
It first started out as a simple file but recently I have noticed that the PDF files are getting much more advanced and complex. Rather than just flipping through page by page the files I am now receiving have table of contents, password protection, and other features.
Do you ever have one of those days where your brain just seems to cramp up and you could swear your skull had a Charlie horse? Yeah today is one of those days for me. Normally I am pretty coherent and try not to do things that are too stupid.
My wife of course would argue that point and could probably come up with a list of the idiotic things I have done that would stretch for miles. Despite all of her irrefutable evidence, I still claim that I am not quite as dumb as I look. After today though I might need to rethink that theory.
