whoops...MAC

So the other day I was helping out a customer with his computer, I work on computer every day BTW, I work for a datacom firm. But today it was a new MAC, and one that I have not seen before. (nice plasmia monitor though)
So I am going through settings, and adding network printers, getting it on broadband DSL. So I get everything done, and I decide to reboot it. I send some test pages to the printers, and the owner goes to retreive them, as I go to turn off the MAC...well I am looking for the power button, and I cannot see any symbol. (you know the circle with the line) ...but I do see this chrome circle...(yea that must be it) so I press it...and it sounds like I am crumpling up a shopping bag. (you know the plastic kind) and about that time I figure out that I am pushing (hard now) on the tweater for the MAC's sound system. DOH!

I felt like the biggest jerk, since I work on these things all the time. (mostly PC's though) So I find the power, and shut it down...it comes back up, and the music sounded fine. *phew*

good one

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: whoops...MAC

Man that sucks but good thing you didn't bust the speaker. A couple of the new Macs kinda have the power buttons hidden. I had to do some searching the first time I tried to turn on an eMac
