    Ok, I am on a roll. After the shampoo rant this is the Apple rant. Let’s say I go to Costco, or Best Buy online or whatever. There is a window that pops up asking me if it can use my location. But it does NOT work, if I say yes I still have to enter my postal code or chose my location. It NEVER...
