First AppleCare Excellence Award in years

Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised with an AppleCare Excellence Award for doing a really impressive (to the customer) job helping an IT consultant back in February. My evil twin must’ve come to work that day. Seriously though, I don’t really … Continue reading
