Secret Diary of an Apple Store Mac Genius

Toronto apple store

There are only four posts up on it so far, but supposedly the higher-ups at Apple are none too stoked about "Genius-like", the LiveJournal of someone who works at Genius Bar of one of the Apple Stores. And we can see why: he or she dishes the inside dirt about what it's like behind the scenes, like being repeatedly told during training that it's easier to get accepted into Stanford than become a Mac Genius, or how Apple charges $135 to install a new replacement logic board, even though it only takes six minutes, and $600 for a new SuperDrive that'll set you back $69 from Newegg.
