Surviving Without My iMac

It’s now day 4 without my iMac and I’m surviving quite well. You see, my iMac screen decided that a yellow vertical line was cool and I didn’t agree. So I called Apple and my screen was on recall so they’re fixing it for free. The downside is that it’ll take 5-7 days. So I’m […]
