IT writer
and inventor of the Blog, David Winer, has found that the cost of owning an Apple Mac book was a lot higher than he thought.

In his Blog, Winer complains that when he brought his MacBook back from a tour of Europe its hard-drive was broken. He took it in to be repaired, it was replaced and was told that he could not have the hard drive back.
