I was sitting here thinking about electronics and warranties. No one wants to buy the insurance plans that protect high-tech electronics, but when a computer or a cell phone or an iPod crash, how many people can honestly say they know the first thing about circuit board repair? Certainly not me.
What made it clear to me was a few years ago. I’d just moved to Wisconsin and my HP went down. Hard drive, in that case, but it could’ve been anything. Fortunately, I was still under warranty. Bust Buy repair guy drove up to me, swapped out the drive – provided an even bigger one at no extra cost, actually – and was on his way.
I kinda envy these tech types. Bet they make better money than I do selling cell phones. But, heh, that doesn’t set the bar very high, does it?
