This is What I Call Service!

Rome Apple Service 


If you have been following my posts, you know that recently I became the owner of the iPad 2 My Very First Apple Product...!  Once again a thank you is owed to my daughter Erica, who signed me up for a basic workshop at the Apple Store on Sunday.

It had been a pretty busy week with the ActiveRain MeetUp in Baltimore , my birthday, a home inspection, a settlement and visiting with my friend C Tann  in Maryland.

Erica thought this might not be the best class since it was an intro to Apple products and I only need info on the iPad. When I arrived, the store  seemed mobbed. They said no, this a normal Sunday. There are always this many people playing with the items.

I was wondering how many were here for the workshop? No room to sit and I figured there was a classroom in the back. Nope. My instructor Ben came out and introduced himself.

You know how big this workshop was? Me...just me! One on one! Ben let me play for an hour on my iPad. I felt like a little kid.  Now if I weren't so wonderfully busy with my listings, sales and settlements...I could spend a lot of time with this toy. I will make time to take another workshop soon. Maybe I could make a weekly habit and learn from someone like Ben. 

This is what I call service...Rome Apple Service!

I'm hoping to get one next year.  Coldwell Banker has a bang-up listing presentation for the Ipad.

Hi Margaret,

You're in a class by yourself. At 42 I am still struggling with posting video...arhhhh.  Glad to see you continue to push and learn everyday even if it is uncomfortable.  This is one of the things that make you special and inspire others.

Happy Wednesday,

Good Morning Margaret, As you may know, my desktop Mac had taken ill and it now a patient at the Apple Hospital getting a new heart ( hard drive) and a complete check up. Unlike humans, as soon as the new heart is put in they will run a 24 hour stress test to make sure everything checks out the way it should. Besides the excellent in store training, this company takes care of the owner and the product and keeps their equipment in top running order. Name any other company in computer technology that does that. That should give you great comfort with your new little one( iPad ) knowing that if it ever gets sick or gets in an accident, the Apple hospital will save it's little life and send it home feeling wonderfully renewed for a very long and happy life. :-)

Hi Margaret, I forgot to mention that I am 100% consigned to the iPad for everything now until my little one comes home. On a listing last evening, my client loved the iPad so much, they are heading to Apple today to buy one.

Does the Apple Hospital need nurses? Hope your desktop is healed completely.

Glad you have the iPad as a back up. You may not need the desktop anymore.
