With Hurricane Ike bearing down on parts of Texas, the AppleCare Repair Center located in Houston will be closed on Friday and Saturday. So if you have a Mac in for repair, or a part on order, Apple might just be a little slow in responding especially in the parts of Texas affected by the hurricane. But if you are in those areas, your Mac repair is probably not your foremost concern anyway.
Stay safe, people.
UPDATE (09/15/08 – 08:49 PT): I’ve just received word that because of interruption of power and water services the AppleCare Repair Center in Houston will be closed today. This center deals mainly in Mac portables and those of you with Macs in for repairs should expect delays. In addition, since the bad weather has only moved on to other parts of the country, DHL has cancelled deliveries and pick ups today in Louisville, KY.
UPDATE (09/23/08 – 09:21 PT): The Houston, Texas AppleCare Repair Center is now accepting mail-in repairs. Back to business as usual it would seem.
