The closest Apple-certified repair center was a typewriter repair store in Philadelphia that apparently did nothing but repair typewriters and Apple computers. I loaded my iMac into my car, drove to the place and found it closed with a sign that said “Closed Thursdays”. Great.
But there was a hitch, the sign’s font was Calibri. No self-respecting Apple enthusiast would ever use Microsoft’s flagship ClearType font for a store sign. This store either had a dark secret or a dark irony to it, neither of which I wanted to deal with. To the Apple Repair Center near my workplace.
